Serena Williams is Engaged to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian!



This is amazing news ahead of the New Year!

35 year old tennis superstar Serena Williams is engaged to 33 year Old Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The sportswoman announced the news on her Reddit page accompanied by an adorable illustration. He proposed in Rome, Italy, where they first met.

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



Her fiance told the world on his Facebook page “She said yes.”

    I love the Williams sisters but I honestly feel like Serena is too “woke” to be marrying a white man. I’m not racist but I believe she is too culturally and racially aware to be diluting her ethnicity. Just my 2 cents

    • Pretty

      Who asked u? BlueEyed African =, mschew. Her choice in a partner is regardless of color, Didn’t she date black brothers before? Did any step up? Now a man has stepped up to choose to be with her forever and you are opening ur ethnic racial cultural blubbery mouth to spew such filth. You wee not goan pray for a partner in cross-over service, be there talking.

    • EE

      She’s marrying for money and status, like all women who can do.

      The alt-right is against diluting their ethnicity, we’re told the alt-right is racist. You are against diluting our ethnicity, what does that make you?

    • EE

      December 30, 2016 at 6:07 am

      Ironically, your tagname is “blue eyed”. Why not brown-eyed, like a proper woken sister?

    • Tilta

      December 30, 2016 at 11:18 am

      “She´s marrying for money and status”..huh? That is an absurd comment from you..For your info….SERENA WORTH A LOT MORE THAN HIM!.

    • Curious

      December 30, 2016 at 5:28 pm

      EE, if you have nothing factual to add, please shut the fuck up. She’s marrying for money and status my ass. Serena runs circles around Alexis financially; he knows it, she knows it, the whole world in fact knows it. You are the only one who doesn’t all because you always want to say some snide BS about women. Abeg go and sit down somewhere with you shady self. Fact is, Alexis is marrying way up; punching way above his weight class with this. Serena is the reason most people know him! Suck on that!

      Also Bellanaija please introduce the dislike button for the likes of EE. His posts are just so irrelevant sometimes.

      1. engaged does not mean married ooooo. chill abeg.
      2. marrying for ‘happiness’ which leads to wins, which leads to money and status, yeah, maybe. 😉

      ‘I am not racist BUT’ But you are indeed racist as EE has subtly asserted.

    • Californiabawlar

      December 30, 2016 at 10:46 am

      Is anyone as woke as our national treasure Aunty Chinamanda? Aren’t most woke men married to white women? Even from the time of slavery sef, e.g. Frederick Douglas. Biko free this sister.
      And as for EE sleekly calling her a gold digger -‘like most women’…you need a few more yards of words to mask your poor mindset and immaturity….as usual.

    • Lilly

      December 30, 2016 at 12:05 pm

      This your statement about being woke. So black women should die single waiting for black men to marry them? When black ‘woke’ men don’t hesitate to marry outside their race. No need to give examples I can go on and on

    Well, you are quite wrong as she is worth more than him.. Do your research EE.

    Rere’s my girl. She honestly just having fun. Hope she wins some more majors on the high 🙂
    Variety is the spice of life, y’all. 😀
