Tennis star Serena Williams announced her engagement on Thursday.
Women’s tennis star Serena Williams, one of the most decorated players in the history of the game, now has a different kind of hardware she can show off. Thursday, Williams announced, on Reddit, that she’s engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Williams announced the news on Reddit’s /isaidyes thread, which, obviously, seems appropriate.
Williams also included a poem about the engagement. Check it out:
I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited
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
The two started dating about a year ago, according to reports. There are no photos of a ring just yet.
Williams, who is 35, has won 22 majors and is widely considered the best women’s tennis player in history. Ohanian, meanwhile, is a 33-year-old entrepreneur who has helped launch a number of successful startups – including Reddit.
Congrats to the happy couple.
