Serena Williams Engaged to Alexis Ohanian

Serena Williams Is Engaged to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian!

Serena Williams is engaged! Her boyfriend, 33-year-old Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, popped the question to the 35-year-old tennis champion on Thursday, and she announced the news in the sweetest way: via her Reddit account, of course. Serena wrote out the happy announcement in the form of a poem. "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."

Since the low-key couple has kept their love life off of social media for the most part, their engagement has come as a surprise to many. Clearly they're happier than ever! Alexis also got in on the big news, sharing his bride-to-be's Reddit post on his Facebook page, simply writing, "She said yes." Congratulations to Serena and Alexis!
