Serena Williams announced her engagement to Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian on Thursday in a poem on a subreddit called "I Said Yes." Naturally.

"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"

The post also includes a fun illustration of Williams and Ohanian as Reddit aliens. What a time to be r/alive!

The announcement calls to mind the reveal of Snapchat founder CEO Evan Spiegel's engagement to model Miranda Kerr — Kerr shared a screenshot of custom Bitmoji versions of the happy couple's proposal.

If a tech leader gets engaged and doesn't announce it on his or her platform, did it really happen?
