The 36-year-old tennis star Serena Williams has finally tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The ceremony took place at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans with a tight security cover and the guests asked not to carry mobile phones to avoid any pictures from being leaked from the wedding.

The guests for the wedding included Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, tennis player and close friend Caroline Wozniacki, sister and fellow tennis player Venus Williams, actress Eva Longoria, according to a story and photos posted on Vogue's website on Friday night. 

But the most important of the guests was Alexis Ohanian Jr, the couple’s first child together, who was born on Sept 1.

Williams, 23-time Grand Slam winner, hasn't competed since winning the Australian Open last January - while pregnant.

She has said she intends to return to the tennis tour for that same event next January, according to global media reports.
