Sports icon Serena Williams is really gearing up to tie the knot. The tennis superstar has treated fans to a look at her engagement ring.
Pictures have surfaced of Williams’ engagement ring from celebrity fiancé Alexis Ohanian.
Serena Williams just showed the world her new engagement ring … and it’s massive. Williams posted the pic Thursday with new fiance and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and — while it’s not a super close-up of the rock — you can tell she’s sporting some serious bling. The couple announced their engagement last week … but somehow the diamond hasn’t seen the light of day until now. (TMZ)
Williams went to Instagram Friday (January 6) with a spoof engagement ring.
Last week, Serena formally announced her new engagement to the Reddit co-founder.
The tennis great has announced that she is engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 33. Fittingly, she broke the news in a poem – on Reddit. “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” Williams, 35, wrote on her verified Reddit account. “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.” She continued: “But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.” Ohanian shared the Reddit announcement on Facebook, simply writing, “She said yes.” (People)
Williams and Ohanian have reportedly dated for nearly two years.
Ohanian also announced the engagement on his Facebook page, linking to Williams’ Reddit post and adding, “She said yes.” Williams and Ohanian, who have been dating since the fall of 2015, have mostly kept their romance out of the spotlight, though she does post pictures of them on her Instagram account from time to time.
