Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged! Naturally, they broke the news on the social news website, with a little poem by the tennis champion.

"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," Serena wrote.

"And you made me the happiest man on the planet," replied Alexis, who goes by the moniker @kn0thing on Reddit. "You're also a really cute Snoo. As I was drawing this for you, I thought, 'our Snoos should go out on a date sometime.'"

Snoos are Reddit's little mascots. Alexis drew versions of himself and Serena, with the latter wearing her tennis outfit. The pair started dating since the autumn of 2015, and have mostly kept their relationship under the radar.

The best reaction to the good news: "Everyone on Reddit is automatically invited." Congratulations, you two!
