Superstar of Tennis Serena Williams is set to get married to Alexis Ohanian, Reddit Co-founder.
Yes, the wedding bells are ringing and Williams announced her engagement to Alexis on Thursday, posting a poem on Reddit that she has accepted the proposal.
Williams’ agent, Jill Smoller, confirmed the engagement in an email to The Associated Press.
Interestingly, Williams, 35, has been dating Ohanian, 33, for over a year.
In a Reddit post titled "I said yes" shared a free verse saying:
“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 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 I said yes.”
The post featured a drawing of Snoo, the site’s mascot, dressed as Ohanian and kneeling with a diamond in its hand. A female Snoo, styled after Ms. Williams and wearing a tennis skirt, Nike top and headband, floated above him with a smile on her face.
Above the picture was the headline, “Future Mrs. Kn0thing.”
To understand this, you need to know that Ohanian has long gone by the handle Kn0thing.
Happy to-be-grom Ohanian chimed in in the comments: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
