Serena Williams Announces Engagement to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian

Tennis superstar Serena Williams announced her engagement to the Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Williams, who won the women’s singles title at Wimbeldon in July, announced the engagement in a poem on Reddit thread for people to continue the thread and share their heartwarming engagement stories. 

“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.”

Though the couple have been in a relationship since 2015, they have kept their relationship on the down-low, 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.
