Serena Williams is engaged. See who she’s engaged with
Serena Williams, 35, has revealed that she is in a serious relationship with Alexis Ohanian, 33, who is the co-founder of Reddit. Serena said this in a poem she wrote on her Reddit verified account.
“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 r/isaidyes,” Williams posted on her account.
Ohanian replied via his verified account: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
The WTA Tour, which Williams has dominated for much of her career, posted a photo of Williams and Ohanian on Twitter with a message of congratulations.
Williams won this year’s Wimbledon crown, the 71st singles title of her career, to match Steffi Graf with an Open Era-record 22 Grand Slam singles titles, two shy of Margaret Court’s all-time record.
She later completed 186 consecutive weeks as world number one, matching Graf for the longest run at the top in rankings history, but she was dethroned from the spot by Angelique Kerber in September.
