"I am happy to confirm Serena is expecting a baby this fall," a representative for the tennis pro told BuzzFeed News.

She also shared the romantic story of the marriage proposal:

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 β€œcharming”
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

The couple have kept their relationship very private, but they reportedly met at a lunch in October 2015. In July, after Williams won her 22nd Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, Ohanian congratulated her on Instagram:
