We already knew Serena William and her husband, Alexis Ohanian are #couplegoals but their latest family trip has just made us love them even more.

The 36-year-old tennis ace and her Reddit co-founder husband, flew to Italy over the weekend, just because Serena had a craving for some delicious Italian food.

“She wanted Italian for dinner, so …”, Alexis captioned a sweet snap of Serena drinking a glass of wine, while he lovingly smiled in her direction.

Serena also took to Instagram to gush over her ‘dreamy’ holiday with her husband and their adorable daughter, 10-month-old Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

“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 captioned a video, which showed Serena lounging on an opulent bed.

The family trip came just weeks after Serena lost out on the Wimbledon women’s singles win to Angelique Kerber.

Serena took on the grueling tournament despite just giving birth ten months ago and going through a traumatic labour, where she ‘nearly died’.

“While I had a pretty easy pregnancy, my daughter was born by emergency C-section after her heart rate dropped dramatically during contractions,” Serena wrote in a column for CNN.

“It began with a pulmonary embolism, which is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs becomes blocked by a blood clot.

“Because of my medical history with this problem, I live in fear of this situation. So, when I fell short of breath, I didn’t wait a second to alert the nurses.”

Serena was admitted to surgery, where doctors found blood clots in her abdomen.

The star spent the first six weeks of motherhood bedridden and missed the Australian Open in January.

However, she was back on form at Wimbledon and made it all the way to the finals.
