Serena Williams Is Engaged to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian!
Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams! The tennis pro announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a pretty cheeky way-on Reddit! And we're giving this bride-to-be some serious credit for the way she shared the news.Comment from discussion I said yes.
Williams wrote a poem describing how the engagement went down on her confirmed Reddit profile, and we're swooning over how thoughtful Ohanian is. "I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage waited/ Destination: Rome," she wrote. "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."
The poem continued, and shared that Ohanian got down on one knee at the very table the two first met at. "He said 4 words/ And I said yes," she finished. Ohanian then commented on the post, "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."
The couple reportedly started dating in November 2015. "They've never seen Serena this happy before with a man," an insider told E! News of Williams' friends and family. "It sounds cheesy, but it was love at first sight. They laugh non-stop and that really fuels their relationship. They are on the same page in life and are excited to start something great with each other and build and grow a family."
We're loving this thoughtful proposal and the promise of a great relationship. Congrats to the happy couple!
