It’s LOVE ALL for Serena Williams!

The tennis great is engaged to boyfriend, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The sports star announced the exciting news in a Reddit post on its “r/isaidyes” forum.

“I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage awaited” Williams said in her Reddit post, which she had written like a poem and had a cartoon of the couple placed at the top.

“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.”

A spokesperson for Alexis confirmed that he had popped the question while the pair were holidaying in Rome.

Alexis also announced the happy news on his Facebook page, writing, “She said yes” and tagging Serena.

The couple have been dating since 2015, but have kept their relationship mostly out of the spotlight. However Serena has posted a number of pictures of the couple on her Instagram account.
