The superstar broke the big news on Snapchat with a photo of her developing baby bump clad in a yellow one-piece bathing suit.
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."
