Serena Williams Engaged to Reddit Co-Founder

Serena Williams engagedStar athlete Serena Williams is officially off-the-market! Her longtime boyfriend, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, popped the question and now we can expect to hear wedding bells ringing soon.

Williams,35, revealed her exciting news via Reddit (appropriately) with a heartfelt poem and cartoon of the pair in r/ISaidYes, a section of the site created specifically for people to share their engagement stories and pictures.

“I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited/Destination: Rome,” she wrote in her Reddit post. “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”

Ohanian,33, posted Williams’ sweet announcement to his Facebook page, along with his own caption: “She said yes.”

The pair have been dating since fall 2015, but have kept their relationship mostly under wraps. A source previously told US Weekly that the pair met at lunch, and that although Alexis wasn’t much of a tennis fan when they met, he certainly is now. “He said he’d never been into tennis until they started dating!” a source told the mag. He even supported his now-fiance at Wimbledon this year:

Our queen stopped by center court today. So proud of you, @serenawilliams. 22 looks good on you. #Wimbledon
