Serena Williams Engaged to Alexis Ohanian



Tennis star Serena Williams is engaged to Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian.

Williams made the surprise announcement on her Reddit account with a sweet poem detailing the proposal.

“I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage awaited,” she wrote. “Destination: Rome/ To escort me to my very own ‘charming’/ Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle/ At the same table we first met by chance/ This time he made it not by chance/ But by choice/ Down on one knee/ He said 4 words/ And I said yes.”

Ohanian responded on his own Reddit page saying, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”

The couple met in fall of 2015 after meeting at lunch.

Ohanian also announced the engagement on Facebook with a cartoon of him proposing to Williams.

This will be the first marriage for both.
