Serena Williams Engaged to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian
Serena Williams is engaged!
The 35-year-old tennis star — who previously dated Drake, Common and Grigor Dimitrov — has announced that she is ready to say “I do” to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33.
Serena revealed the happy news on her verified Reddit account, with a poem:
"I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited," she wrote. "Destination: Rome/To escort me to my very own 'charming'/ Back to where our stars first collided."
She continued, "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."
Alexis responded to the post via his own Reddit account, saying "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."
The engagement comes as a surprise for most fans of the tennis star, as she reportedly dated rapper Drake just one year ago. Both Serena and Drake called it no more than a “flirty friendship,” however, and it appears Brooklyn born venture capitalist Alexis is the one who truly locked down the tennis champ’s heart.
Alexis is an Armenian-American entrepreneur, investor and author who has reportedly been dating the bronze goddess on and off for a little over a year.
He’s best known however for co-founding social news site Reddit alongside partner and college roommate Steve Huffman in 2005. Reddit investors include Peter Thiel, Jared Leto, Snoop Dogg and others, with the company currently being worth an estimated $500M.
Congratulations to Serena and Alexis on their engagement!
