Serena Williams has become engaged to Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of social news and discussion website, Reddit.
The 35 year old champion tennis player announced the news with a sweet poem posted on an “r/isaidyes” forum she created.
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” Williams 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. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
Ohanian, naturally replied using his verified username “kn0thing” – “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
The Reddit founder then went on to confirm the happy news with a cartoon picture on his Facebook page.
The couple first met last year and officially started dating in October 2015. The relationship came on the back of rumours Williams had been dating rapper Drake over the northern summer of 2015.
A huge congratulations to the happy couple-we wish you all the best!
