On 29th Dec’16, Legendary Tennis Player, Serena Williams announced her engagement to Reddit’s co-founder, Alexis Ohnian who have been dating since the fall of 2015. Serena described how Alexis had proposed to him by writing their love tale in the form of a free verse poem on Reddit on the “isaidyes” subreddit that brims with beautiful engagement stories.
“ 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 / And / r/isaidyes”
To this, Alexis commented, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.” Both of them hadn’t made much fuss about their relationship on social media; they just posted a few pictures on Instagram together. So, when Serena announced the engagement; the one picture she poster with Alexis at a costume party months ago was swamped with “Kudos” and lots of love to them.
Serena’s post also featured a picture where Snoo, Redit’s mascot (Alexis Ohanian) gets on one foot with a diamond in his hand and a cartoon of the female Snoo clad in a tennis skirt (Serena Williams), which she happily accepts. It’s a wild goose chase if we try to find two people more perfect for each other. It’s a match made in heaven.
We wish you a Happy Married life, Serena and Alexis!
