Alexis Ohanian has said that he's joining "natural hair" Facebook groups to figure out how to do his daughter's hair.

Ohanian, who cofounded Reddit and venture capital firm Initialized Capital, is the husband of 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion Serena Williams.

She gave birth to their daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in 2017. It has been clear ever since that they are both smitten with their 1-year-old girl - Ohanian even said all of the words from Disney movie "Frozen" are stuck in his head because he's seen it 3,000 times.

Alexis Olympia has already made appearances on Williams' Instagram account holding an adorable miniature racket bag, throwing a tennis racket around, and even getting used to the feel of a court.

As Ohanian Jr. gets older, her hair gets longer, and Ohanian Sr. wants to help her style it, so he told his Twitter followers he's joining dedicated Facebook groups and even watching YouTube videos to help him master how to do just that.

"Just applied to join four private Natural Hair Facebook groups," he said recently. "I hope they don't auto-reject my application when they see my profile photo. I told them it was to keep getting better at doing my daughter's hair."

In a later post, he said: "Daddy daughter Youtube accounts are the best."

Judging by his daughter's Instagram, an account that has more than 500,000 followers, it looks like he's doing a great job.
