Plus, the two had been secretly dating for over a year
Tennis superstar Serena Williams – who had previously dated Drake and Grigor Dimitrov – has revealed that she is now engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
The star made the announcement via her Reddit account in the form of a poem, which read: “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. 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. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
The news certainly comes as a surprise, as the two somehow managed to keep their romance under wraps for roughly a year.
And Serena had previously discussed the possibility of having children in the future, but still feels a bit young for motherhood.
“I definitely want to have kids one day. That’s something I’ve always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I’m like, ‘I’m too young!'”
She then added about her legacy and career: “I never thought about leaving a tennis legacy. I always thought about leaving a legacy of fulfillment, living out your dreams, and giving back. I’m proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. I was given a lot.
I was given two parents. That’s already starting above a lot of kids. And then I was given the opportunity to play tennis and parents who supported that. I feel I can give back.”
