For a second we thought the holidays were going to pass us by without any celebrity engagements, but Serena Williams has surprised us all today with news she and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are planning to tie the knot.


The engagement announcement came in the cutest and most appropriate way possible via a poem on Reddit in which the 35-year-old tennis pro announced that she is the “Future Mrs. KnOthing.”

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



Serena and Alexis, 33, began dating quietly last October and have pretty much kept their relationship out of the public eye. Looks like that was a good move. Congrats to the couple!
