Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged

When you're marrying the co-founder of Reddit, it just makes sense you'll announce your engagement on r/isaidyes.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams posted a poem on the forum, sharing that she came home to find a bag packed for a trip to Rome, where Alexis Ohanian was waiting for her at "the same table where we first met by chance." He got down on one knee, and "said four words. And I said yes." Ohanian shared Williams' account of their engagement on his Facebook page, with the simple caption, "She said yes" (he also responded to her Reddit post, saying she made him "the happiest man on the planet"). It was first reported in October 2015 that the pair were dating, but they have kept their relationship largely out of the spotlight — until now.
