Serena Williams has had an incredible 2016, and it just got even better. She just got engaged!
Just days before ringing in the New Year, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian put a ring on the tennis champ’s winning finger.
Who is the man who has reached a high score with the all-star athlete’s heart? Of course we wanted to know everything, and we know you do too. Here is what we know about Williams’ new fiancé.
1. He is a University of Virginia grad.
The 32-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y. native majored in History, graduated with a B.S. in Commerce and minored in German. Not too shabby.
2. He is the cofounder of the “front page of the internet” site, Reddit.
In 2005, Ohanian and fellow UVA alum Steve Huffman co-founded the website which acts as an online social sharing platform for everything from book chat to viral jokes. Seriously, it covers communities around everything under the sun.
3. He’s a millionnaire.
According to Heavy, Ohanian is worth a cool, $4 million. Slow clap.
4. His beard is a work of art.
Serena sure has a thing for beautiful bearded men, and her new fiancé is no exception. Hello scruff!
5. Serena and Alexis began dating in 2015.
Back in October of 2015, US Weekly first broke news of their relationship. They reportedly met at “a lunch” and hit it off which prompted a gym date and the rest is history!
6. He is her biggest fan.
On Instagram, Alexis doesn’t hold back when it comes to cheering his woman on and singing her praises.
