Olympia Ohanian may have just eaten a life-changing waffle. On Friday, Alexis Ohanian took his and Serena Williams’s daughter to Waffle House for the first time. While that may not seem like a momentous occasion, the restaurant chain holds a special place in Ohanian’s heart.
As the 39-year-old explained in a series of videos on Instagram, if not for Waffle House, he may have become a lawyer instead of founding Reddit. “‘Papa stop taking photos and let me eat this waffle’ — I took @olympiaohanian to her first @wafflehouseofficial ,” he wrote in his post. “If you know my story, you know that if I hadn’t walked out of the LSAT to get WH, I’d be a lawyer instead of starting Reddit. I’ll always be grateful to that WH on 29 near @UVA.”
For her part, 4-year-old Olympia seemed to be unimpressed by her dad’s Waffle House nostalgia. Then again, who could blame her for having trouble focusing when there’s a crispy waffle right in front of her? The look on her face makes it clear she just wants to dive into her food, not take a walk down memory lane with her famous father.
“If you’ve been following me for a while, you know just how important this restaurant is,” Ohanian explained on Instagram. “This is where it all started. Not this literal one, but Waffle House. If not for Waffle House, I might be a lawyer. Which no one would want. But thankfully, in the middle of taking the LSAT, I got hungry and I got up and left and went to a Waffle House. And now I’m taking my daughter there, showing her the greatness that is Waffle House.”
Even though Olympia is more focused on her waffles than her father’s life-changing Waffle House moment, her first visit is one Ohanian will treasure — and one she’ll no doubt appreciate when she gets older. For now, she seems happy to focus on tucking into some delicious breakfast food. And just in case you’re wondering, little Olympia did eventually get to eat her waffle (and pour her own syrup, too!).
Ohanian shared a few more photos from their trip on Twitter, including a shot of Olympia dousing her breakfast with syrup. “AMPLE SYRUP,” he captured the tweet.
Now that Olympia has been introduced to Waffle House, her famous parents will have to see if the restaurant leads to an “aha moment” later in her life, or simply kicks off a life-long obsession with breakfast food.
