Tennis great Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged! A spokesperson for Ohanian confirmed the proposal while the two vacationed in Rome. Williams announced the news herself in a Reddit post on its signature “r/siadyes” forum.
The two have been dating since Fall 2015, having kept their relationship out of the public except for the occasional Instagram photos.
On the sites forum, Williams wrote,
“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.”
The happy couple have not disclosed a wedding date. But we will be sure to keep you posted when they do!
Anyways, Congrats Serena and Alexis!
