The tennis star — who is verified on Reddit — shared the news of their engagement on the forum /r/isaidyes, saying:

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
And

And she added this image:

"And you made me the happiest man on the planet," Ohanian replied to the post.

The couple have kept their relationship very private, but reportedly met at a lunch in October 2015, according to Us Weekly.
