The news of Serena Williams engagement broke just few hours after Drake and Jennifer Lopez confirmed their relationship publicly.

It was widely alleged that drake had a very brief relationship with the tennis star Serena Williams.

Now she has gotten for herself a real man in the person of Alexis Ohanian, a multimillionaire.

 Serena Williams' fiancĂ© Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit, a multimillionaire and the apparent 'Mayor of the Internet' thanks to his fiercely outspoken views on anti-piracy legislation.

His net worth is somewhere in the $4.5million region and he first jumped to internet fame when he set up social media and content aggregator site Reddit in 2005 with Steve Huffman.

He was there when the site took off and was acquired by Conde Naste publications in 2006. Alexis continued working with Reddit until 2010, when he left to invest in several start-ups, before his return a few years later.

His personal motto is "making the world suck less" and he's invested in more than 200 small businesses, each of which he vets personally to ensure they chime with his creedo.

Alexis is also the author of the bestselling 2013 book Without Their Permission: How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed, which looks at how Reddit was formed and includes his belief that the internet can be harnessed for good.

He's been included twice on Forbes' influential 30 Under 30 list - once when he was 28 for being the CEO of Breadpig, and again the following year for his Reddit work.

Alexis and Serena first met in 2015 at a lunch and started dating in October of that year. While they're not the most public of celebrity couples, Alexis has been supporting Serena's tennis career since they first got together - and he posted a public congratulations on his Instagram when she won the 2016 Wimbledon women's final.

Serena announced their engagement on - where else? - Reddit, with a poem describing how he'd taken her to Rome.

"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 I said yes."

Alexis immediately replied to Serena's public declaration by telling her: "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."

Wow.....quite a read!
