Forget the celebrities, we’re seeing a more intense competition between the Hollywood kids who seem to be living better lives than their famous parents. Just look at how much A-listers like DJ Khaled, Simon Cowell, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and others spoil their kids with gifts which are worth more than what an average American earns in a year. But not every celebrity has this mindset when it comes to celebrating their kids’ birthdays or other important life events. Take Serena Williams for instance, who may never celebrate her daughter’s birthday in this life.
Alexis Olympia turned one in August 2018, and many fans expected a lavish birthday celebration from the tennis champion and her husband, Alexis Ohanian. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t celebrate Olympia because they are Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Members of Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t celebrate birthdays, holidays, or celebrations. However, they often give gifts to their kids, to make up for this belief.
Serena grew up as a Witness but has never practiced her faith until she was much older. Even though her husband did not grow up in a church setting, he is open and accepting of different beliefs. The couple welcomed Olympia in September 2017 and got married a few months later in New Orleans. Serena is not rigid like a serious Jehovah Witness; she is open to many things but still maintains her decency and decorum.
