Serena Williams announces engagement to Alexis Ohanian
Williams surprised the world by announcing the engagement in a poem on a Reddit thread for people to share their engagement stories.
According to the poem posted from her verified Reddit account, 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.”
Ohanian shared Williams’s Reddit post on his Facebook page writing, “She said yes”.
He also commented on her Reddit thread, writing, “and you made me the happiest man on the planet”.
Apparently, the couple have been dating since late 2015, but have been keeping it low key except for a few Instagram posts.
Just four weeks ago, Williams posted a photo of the couple at a costume party.
