Amazing news for Serena Williams: she's getting married!

The tennis sensation has announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian - and naturally, the ecstatic pair made full use of the social network to reveal their exciting news.

Posting to the r/isaidyes forum on Reddit, Serena shared a poem that outlined the details of Alexis' proposal, which took place in Rome over Christmas.

The sweet post read: "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



We're not crying - you're crying. *wipes tears furiously*

Serena shared the post (which included the cartoon, left, believed to have been drawn by Alexis himself) last night, and it's since had over 1600 responses from well-wishers around the globe.

Speculation that the couple were dating first began towards the end of 2015, although they've kept their relationship almost entirely out of the spotlight until now.

Congratulations, Serena and Alexis!
