Serena Williams has set out to prove that motherhood won’t doom her demanding career – and it hasn’t spelled the end of romance in her marriage, either. Quite the contrary, it seems.

Williams’ husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, posted an image on Instagram of Williams tipping back a glass of wine. In the post -- tagged with the location “Venezia, Italia” – the tennis star is clad in pink and her spouse looks tickled the same color.

“She wanted Italian for dinner, so...” he captioned the image.

Williams had a craving for pasta (or whatever) and her man whisked her away to Italy? Talk about true love.

The couple has been married since November 2017. Their baby, Alexis Olympia, was born in September 2017. (Presumably the little cutie was with them? Williams has said she doesn’t want to spend a day apart from her daughter until she turns 18.)

Ohanian posted another photo from Venice showing what appears to be his wife walking down a moodily lit Italian street, captioning it, “Last night was a blur.”

Williams, meanwhile, posted a very cool video of herself in a luxury hotel room that was presumably taken with a drone. (It’s worth watching repeatedly.)

“Loving family time in beautiful Italy. What an insane room I stayed in. I got to look at stars from my bed at night!! This week has been a dream!” she wrote.

Ah, newlyweds.
