Tennis superstar Serena Williams announced on Thursday (Dec 29) her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

She broke the news with a poem on her verified Reddit account.

Williams,35, and Ohanian,33, did not reveal a wedding date in the postings, listed under the Reddit tag ‘isaidyes’.

“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 And r/isaidyes,” Williams posted on her account.

A reply from Ohanian’s verified account said: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”

The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Tour, which Williams has dominated for much of her career, posted a photo of Williams and Ohanian on Twitter with a message of congratulations.
