A rep for the tennis star confirmed that she and her boyfriend, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, are ready to say “I do!”
Williams first shared the news via her verified Reddit account (because, duh), posting a sweet poem beside a cartoon sketch of Ohanian getting down on one knee.
Serena: “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.”
A source also said Williams’ friends are “so happy” for her. “They’ve never seen Serena this happy before with a man. It sounds cheesy, but it was love at first sight.”
“They laugh non-stop and that really fuels their relationship,” the insider says. “They are on the same page in life and are excited to start something great with each other.”
Alexis Ohanian (born April 24, 1983) is an American internet entrepreneur, activist, investor, and best-selling author born in the Brooklyn borough of New York City and based in San Francisco, best known for co-founding the social news website Reddit, co-founding the early stage venture capital firm Initialized Capital, helping launch the travel search website Hipmunk, and starting the social enterprise Breadpig.
