Serena Williams is a badass tennis player and couldn’t be bothered with a boring engagement story. Williams is engaged to Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, and announced the upcoming wedding on — you guessed it — Reddit. Ohanian also confirmed their engagement on Facebook just in case anybody thought the Reddit post was a random troll.
The world-renowned athlete wrote out the story of how Ohanian proposed, saying, “I came home/A small late/Somebody had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited.” Exactly where had been they off to? Rome, of course. Where else? “Back to where the stars 1st collided,” she wrote. “And now it was complete circle/At the very same table we initial met by possibility.” Eventually she got to the good part, saying, “Down on one particular knee/He mentioned four words.” Obviously she stated yes, and Ohanian added, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
OK, you two. This is as well adorable, even for our cold, cold hearts.
Williams and Ohanian started dating in 2015, and (primarily based off her Reddit post) met randomly at a restaurant in Rome. The couple haven’t precisely flaunted their relationship, but they haven’t hid it either, and Williams posts pictures of them on Instagram each now and then.
Ohanian much better be worthy of the greatest athlete of all time, that is all I have to say.
