Tennis star Serena Williams and boyfriend Alexis Ohanian (Reddit co-founder) announced Thursday (Dec. 29) that they are engaged.
Via a Reddit thread, titled “I Said Yes”, Williams shared the story of their romantic proposal.
“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 collide / 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 / isaidyes,” she shared.
In response to her poem, Ohanian wrote: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
The couple began dating back in October 2015, when the two met “at a lunch”, a source told Us Weekly.
Apparently, things have been good, and their romance has flourished. It’s unclear if they’ve set a wedding date yet.
