Tennis star and Reddit co-founder are engaged!

Super tennis player, Serena Williams got a wedding proposal from her boyfriend Alexis Ohanian and... yeah you guessed right... she said yes!

The couple made the announcement in their separate romantic ways today, December 29, 2016.

Serena chose to make the announcement through her Reddit account [where else?], with the 35-year-old posting the following words:

"I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited.

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 knee.

He said 4 words. [Will you marry me?] And I said yes."

Alexis’ announcement was briefer but not less enthusiastic, as he opted to share a link on Facebook, which simply read “she said yes.”

At some point in the year, it was thought that the tennis star was dating global rap star, Drake, but apparently that was smoke without fire as Serena and Alexis have been together since the end of 2015, though they largely kept their relationship away from public eye.

Their love story has now reached a significant, beautiful point and promises to get even better as they prepare to take that walk down the aisle.

All the best to Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian!
