Tennis champion Serena Williams is celebrating an engagement this holiday season.

Serena shared the news that her boyfriend Alexis Ohanian popped the question by sharing a poem on her verified Reddit channel of all places.

That makes a bit more sense when you know that Ohanian is, in fact, the executive chairman of Reddit. A handy bit of synergy, no?

Here's the full poem: "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 I said yes."

Alexis Ohanian shared the poem on - of course - his own Reddit account and replied: "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."

Okay, it might be a bit of corporate shilling but the sentiment is admittedly pretty romantic...

Hopefully Serena Williams can fit the wedding into her busy 2017 schedule... when she's not hanging out with her friend Beyoncé and dancing in her music videos.

Earlier this year, the athlete revealed how she came to twerk in the Lemonade film: "I know Beyoncé pretty well, so they were like, 'We would love for you to be in this particular song. It's about strength and it's about courage and that's what we see you as.'

"She told me that she just wants me to dance, like just be really free and just dance like nobody's looking and go all out. So that wasn't easy in the beginning, but then it got easier... I thought that particular song on the visual album was really a strong song, and it was also really fun at the same time."

Beyoncé will be a bridesmaid, right?
