Sports meet Technology: Serena Williams and Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian announce engagement

Tennis great Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian are engaged.  Williams first announced the news herself in a Reddit post. Her Reddit post featured a drawing of Snoo, the site’s mascot, dressed as Mr. Ohanian and kneeling with a diamond in its hand. A female Snoo, styled after Ms. Williams and wearing a tennis dress, Nike top and headband, floated above him with a smile on her face. Above the picture was the headline, “Future Mrs. Kn0thing.”

Serena Williams post below lines by her reddit account:

“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



Ohanian also announced the engagement on his Facebook page, linking to Williams’ Reddit post and adding, “She said yes.”
