Now that they are mar­ried, Ser­ena Wil­liams and Alexis Oha­nian are be­lieved to have a com­bined worth of $150mil­lion. Yet, the cou­ple may still be look­ing for ways to earn a few more dol­lars — by go­ing on their honey­moon in the Ba­hamas.

A re­port on sug­gests that the ten­nis cham­pion and her Red­dit co-founder hus­band could be get­ting a free stay at the $35,000-per-week lux­ury Ka­malame Cay pri­vate is­land re­sort in the Ba­hamas. The re­port fur­ther­more sug­gests that they also could be get­ting paid to shill for the pop­u­lar travel web­site Book­ing. com.

The cou­ple, who are par­ents of new baby daugh­ter Alexis Olympia, wed in Novem­ber in a block­buster, star- stud­ded wed­ding in New Or­leans. That wed­ding, by the way, was pho­tographed by Vogue mag­a­zine, which pub­lished a se­ries of glam­orous shots of Wil­liams in her three dif­fer­ent gowns and of celebrity guests like Bey­oncé and Kim Kar­dashian. While in the Ba­hamas, the hon­ey­moon­ers are shar­ing more than the usual so­cial media pho­tos of their va­ca­tion.

Both Wil­liams and Oha­nian, and Book­, have posted an ar­ray of im­ages that look pro­fes­sion­ally shot and are def­i­nitely pro­mo­tional. TMZ added that the cou­ple will­ingly par­tic­i­pated in a photo shoot in con­nec­tion with Book­ The travel web­site posted a photo of the cou­ple to­gether on the bal­cony of their honey­moon villa at the Ka­malame Cay is­land re­sort and cap­tioned it: “Wish­ing @ser­e­naw­illiams a very happy honey­moon in this Caribbean hide­away.” Mean­while, Wil­liams of­fered her 7.1 mil­lion In­sta­gram fans an in­side look at what she de­scribed as Alexis’ “per­fect honey­moon villa.” This look comes in the form of a brief video, which was shot by Oha­nian’s dronee­quipped cam­era. It shows Wil­liams on the bal­cony of a sprawl­ing beach­side lodge, nes­tled among palm trees and set against a post­card-wor­thy trop­i­cal sun­set.

An­other post shows Wil­liams, in a still photo, tak­ing a “breath of fresh air.” She’s again on the bal­cony, this time with the beach in the back­ground and her hair il­lu­mi­nated by a halo of light from the set­ting sun. Both the video and the photo are cap­tioned with a hash­tag that gives a shout- out to Book­ As of Wed­nes­day morn­ing, the video and photo had re­ceived a com­bined 360,000 views.


Re­ports sug­gest that a travel com­pany may be foot­ing the bill for mul­ti­mil­lion­aires Ser­ena Wil­liams and Alexis Oha­nian to honey­moon in the Ba­hamas.
