She is getting hooked to Reddit co-owner Alexis Ohanian.
The 35 year old tennis star broke the news fittingly on Reddit as she travelled to New Zealand.
Williams announced their engagement while she was in the air between Los Angeles and Auckland, where she was due to play the ASB Classic next week.
Williams made the announcement in a poem.
“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.”
Ohanian shared Williams’s Reddit post on his Facebook page with the message: “she said yes”. He also commented on her Reddit thread, writing: “And you made me the happiest man on the planet”.
Williams and Ohanian had been dating for about a year, and were relatively private about their relationship prior to this announcement.
The couple are yet to announce a wedding date.
