Professional tennis player Serena Williams is engaged to her boyfriend, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
William’s spokeswoman, Kelly Bush Novak, said that a wedding date has yet to be set, adding that the couple had known each other for quite a while before they started dating in October 2015.
She announced her engagement on Thursday (29th December) on the “I Said Yes” subreddit with a sweet poem that reads:
“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 And
In the comment, Ohanian wrote, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
Aww <3 Aren’t these 2 the cutest?
The 35-year-old sportswoman is one of the greatest American athletes in recent times and is also the highest-paid female athlete in the world. While 33-year-old Ohanian is less well-known than his wife-to-be, Reddit was ranked #11 most visited web-site in US this year.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
