SERENA :I’M ENGAGED | Tennis champ, Serena Williams has announced her engagement to the co-founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian.
Serena announced the engagement in a poem on a Reddit thread for people to share their engagement stories. She said in the poem, posted from her verified Reddit account, 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.”
The couple have been dating since at least late 2015, but have kept their relationship quiet, with the exception of a few Instagram posts.
Four weeks ago, Williams posted a photo of the couple at a costume party. Within minutes of the engagement announcement, comments on the photo were dominated with congratulatory messages and emojis.
