Serena Williams Gets Engaged To Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian

Serena Williams has announced she is engaged to the co- founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian. According to the Guardian, Williams announced the engagement in a poem On a Reddit thread for people to share their engagement stories. In the post from her verified account, she said that Ohanian proposed at the place they first met during a surprise trip to Rome. Williams wrote:

“I came home/A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage waited. 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/But by choice/ Down on knee/He said 4 words/and I said yes.”

We’re not sure when the couple became a thing but it seems that they’ve  been dating since late 2015 but has been keeping the relationship low- key, aside from a few Instagram post. If you follow Williams on IG then you should remember back to about four weeks ago she posted a photo of her and Ohanian at a costume party .In typical IG fashion, when fans heard the big news they returned back to the older post to leave comments wishing the couple congrats with wedding bell emoji’s. 

Ohanian shared his joy by posting Williams Reddit post on his Facebook page with the caption “She said yes!” He also commented on her Reddit thread writing “And you made me the happiest man on the planet” 

Congrats to the newly engaged couple! What a great year to start the new year with love and a new beginning.
