Venus and Serena Williams’s 71-year old daddy has a new baby with a 33-year old woman (PICTURED)

They say that you’re never too old to start over again. If you want an example of this notion in practice, you only need to look toward Richard Williams. The father of tennis greats Venus and Serena Williams has gotten a new lease on youth by having a baby with his 33-year old wife Lakeisha Graham.
How young is Richard’s wife? She’s only one year older than Venus and two years older than Serena. So, at least the all have something in common.
Lakeisha started dating Richard back in 2009 and the two got engaged later that year. They were married in December, 2010, and she now enjoys financial security from a man who is old enough to be her grandfather.
Richard was divorced from his ex-wife Oracene in 2002. She left the marriage after ending up with three broken ribs during a domestic violence incident for which her husband was never charged.
Richard’s son Dylan is only seven months old. He has two daughters and three sons from a previous marriage that ended in 1973 before Venus and Serena were born. The reason that Venus and Serena withdrew from a documentary about their lives was because it portrayed their father as a controlling force in his relationships.
