Congratulations are in order for world tennis star Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who have announced their engagement.

Williams took to Reddit to share a cartoon image and poem which confirmed the happy news. She revealed that Ohanian proposed in Rome, at the spot where they first met.

“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.” she posted.

Ohanian took to Facebook to confirm the news, revealing that Williams had asked him to draw something for her, as she had a Reddit post to make. Relationship goals? We think so!

(She said yes.)She asked me to draw her something for "the future Mrs. Kn0thing" because she had a Reddit post to make. Keeper.

The pair have kept their relationship out of the limelight for the most part, only sharing a few images on social media. They have reportedly been dating since at least late 2015.
