The Reddit co-founder has paid tribute to his wife for "fighting for her life" and praised her "passion" and how she "never gives up".

Sharing a video tribute to Serena, he captioned it: "She fought for her life, for our child, for recognition, for equal pay, for women's rights. She never gives up. She's passionate and unrelenting and the most inspiring person I know."

Meanwhile, Serena previously confessed she is still seeking the perfect work-life balance as she brings up her daughter Alexis Olympia.

She explained: "It's hard. It's not easy being a working mom, but that's what we do. Women are strong and we are continuing to be, so I'm really proud of that ... I think there is. The thing is, you just have to find it. I'm not sure if I've found it yet, but I'm getting there. I'm finding my personal work-life balance.

"When I missed Olympia's walking, I posted about it and so many parents wrote in and said, 'Don't worry about it, I missed it too.' I didn't realise that it's almost more normal to miss it than it is to make it. So I really kind of rely on everyone's help out there. It's been so, so amazing."

However, motherhood hasn't been easy for Serena and she confessed she cried every time her daughter did in the early stages.

She shared: "It's tough in the beginning. The baby's crying all the time and you don't know why - you don't know if it's gas, you don't know if she's sick, you don't know if it's just colic. So I just started crying with her because I couldn't help her and I wanted to help her and I couldn't, so I just started crying."
