Serena Williams, 35, has revealed that she is in a serious relationship with Alexis Ohanian, 33, who is the co-founder of Reddit. Serena said this in a poem she wrote on her Reddit verifiedaccount.
“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,” Williams posted on heraccount.
Ohanian replied via his verified account: “And you made me the happiestmanon the planet.”
The WTA Tour, which Williams has dominated for much of her career, posted a photo of Williams and Ohanian onTwitterwith a message of congratulations.
