Tennis superstar, Serena Williams & Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged


According to CNN, Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged. A spokesperson for Ohanian confirmed that he popped the question while they were on holiday in Rome. Williams first announced the news herself in a Reddit post on its “r/isaidyes” forum. She shared the poem-like message below with a cartoon of the couple at the top ;


I came home a little late

Someone had a bag packed for me

And a carriage awaited

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

This time he made it not by chance

But by choice

Down on one knee

He said 4 words


Ohanian also announced the engagement on his Facebook page, linking to Williams’ Reddit post and adding, “She said yes.”

Serena and Alexis have been dating since 2015 but have mostly kept their romance out of the spotlight even though she posts pictures of them on her Instagram account from time to time.


Congrats to the couple!!
