New York: Serena Williams announced her engagement with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian is a Redidit post on its “r/isaidyes” forum.
The development was later re-announced by Ohanian on his official Facebook page.
According to the sources, Ohanian had proposed Serena Williams during their vacations in Rome, to which the Tennis legend replied in affirmative.
Serena’s Reddit post reads, “I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited” Williams said in her Reddit post, which was written like a poem and had a cartoon of the couple at the top. “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/And/r/isaidyes.”
Ohanian re-confirmed the engagement reports on his Facebook page, by linking Williams’ Reddit post and adding, “She said yes.”
The couple has always kept their relationship away from limelight ever since they started seeing each other in the fall of 2015.
Serena Williams, however, have been posting a few pictures of her with the internet entrepreneur on her official Instagram account.
