Serena Williams Engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian

Tennis great Serena Williams announced her engagement Thursday to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

Fittingly, Williams, 35, announced the engagement to Ohanian, 33, on her verified Reddit account — in the form of a poem.

The poem:

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 



Ohanian shared the Reddit post to his Facebook page, with the words, “She said yes.

The world No. 2 player’s announcement was met with a flood of congratulations, including from the WTA, via Twitter.
