I felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self.

We rarely see Serena’s romantic side and one of that moment was when she and Ohanian got engaged. She posted a sweet poem through her verified Reddit account.

In her words

I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage awaited," she wrote. "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 I said yes

To which he responded, And you made me the happiest man on the planet.

Everybody together now. AWWWWWW!
