The couple announced their engagement on Reddit a few hours ago. In fact, it was Serena who broke the news, with a little poem. “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,” the poem read. They also shared a cute illustration that symbolizes their engagement, which you can see above.

Ohanian responded to Serena’s post on Reddit by writing “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”Alexis also shared the Reddit link of his fiancés post to his Facebook page and simply wrote “She said yes.” The two first started dating in October of last year, but hadn’t spoken about their relationship in public often.

A big number of Reddit users immediately congratulated the couple on their engagement. The couple started dating after Serena’s fling with famous rapper Drake. However, it looks like that her feelings for Alexis are much stronger than for any man she’s previously been with. According to a source for E! News, Serena’s friends claim that they’ve never seen the famous professional tennis player this happy with a man before.
