Since Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams welcomed their baby girl, Alexis Olympia, the new dad says his life (and TV viewing experience) has changed drastically—in a good way.

During an Instagram Live session in partnership with Johnnie Walker on Tuesday, the Reddit co-founder opened up about how fathering his little namesake has helped him to better understand the characters on Game of ThronesIt turns out he kinda gets where Cersei (Lena Headey) is coming from. 

“I finally understand Game of Thrones. I think about how I would do anything for my daughter, and also my wife,” he shared. “[Fatherhood] gives me this clarity of thought around every decision I make, not just professionally, but personally, and everything else. It just feels really good. It’s like a higher level of consciousness.”

Ohanian went on to say that in addition to giving him a better feel for Westerosi culture, becoming a dad made him get his house in order: “When I found out I was going to be a dad and I realized I had not taken any care of myself for the first 34 years of my life, I needed to change that. From the moment I learned there was a little poppy seed inside my wife, I was like ‘Geez, I have to get my life right.’”

So basically, Serena Williams married a healthy Lannister. The hidden plus? They always repay their diaper debts.
