The nuptials came nearly a year after the couple annouced their engagement, in December 2016, and two years after they began dating.
Ohanian first made his fortune after selling Reddit to Condé Nast when he was just 23 years old.
After spending time working on other ventures, he returned as the company’s executive chairman in 2014. But it wasn’t until 2016 that Williams confirmed the rumors, posting a throwback photo on Instagram that pictured Ohanian.
That’s because he and co-founder Steve Huffman sold Reddit to Conde Nast in 2006, just a year after they launched it, and long before it blew up and became “the front page of the Internet.” Where was Justin Timberlake when Ohanian needed him?
A better theory—assuming we need a theoretical framework for what amounts to a half-baked rumor about Williams’ love life—would be that she’s attracted to his energy, charisma, and positive attitude.
