Serena Williams announced her engagement by randomly posting a poem on Reddit

Well, she *is* engaged to Reddit’s co-founder.

IF YOU’VE BEEN on social media over Christmas, you’ve probably noticed a lot of friends and acquaintances sharing their engagement announcements.

Photos of rings accompanied by captions reading, “She said yes.” That kind of thing.

Among those to get engaged this festive season? None other than tennis great Serena Williams, who announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last night.

But she didn’t share a photo of a ring or anything like that. Instead, she decided to post a poem to the r/isaidyes subreddit.

But of course.

And her fiancé replied, “And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”

Announcing your engagement on Reddit? How very 2016.

Rather predictably, Ohanian’s Wikipedia has already been edited…

“Ohanian is engaged to the tennis great Serena Williams. In other words, Ohanian is now the luckiest nerd of us all.”

Luckily, he’s cool with it

Just part and parcel of dating Serena Williams, huh?

Congratulations to the happy couple.
