Serena Williams is engaged to be married.
The tennis star revealed on Thursday that her boyfriend of almost two years, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, popped the question after whisking her away on a surprise trip to Rome.
Williams, 35, shared the news on Reddit by posting a poem, writing: '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 I said yes.'
Ohanian, 33, later posted Williams' poem to his Facebook account, writing: 'She said yes.' He also commented on her poem on Reddit, writing: 'And you made me the happiest man on the planet.'
'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,' wrote Williams.
She also included a graphic that showed her dressed in her tennis gear and floating on air as Ohanian presented her with a large diamond.
Congratulations to the happy couple! No wedding date has been set.
