The tennis great has announced that she is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33. Fittingly, she broke the news in a poem – on Reddit.
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” Williams, 35, wrote on her verified Reddit account. “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.”
She continued: “But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.” Ohanian shared the Reddit announcement on Facebook, simply writing, “She said yes.”
He also commented on Williams’ Reddit post, writing, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
The engagement comes as a surprise to many – Williams and Ohanian have kept their love private. However, they did show off their silly sides in an Instagram photo around Halloween.
