Serena Williams, Alexis Ohanian getting married this week: report



Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian are about to have a grand slam wedding.


The couple, who welcomed their first child together in September, are reportedly set to tie the knot in a small ceremony in New Orleans this week, a source told People.


Williams, 36, and Ohanian began dating in 2015 and will say “I do” at the Contemporary Arts Center in NOLA, according to the Daily Mail, which was the first to report the plans.


Some of the expected guests include Kris Jenner, Beyoncé and JAY-Z, People reports.

The 34-year-old Reddit co-founder proposed to the tennis pro in 2016 at a restaurant in Rome where they first met.


Williams announced the news of their engagement with a poem on her soon-to-be husband’s platform, Reddit.


“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 r/isaidyes,” she wrote, using the company’s trademark style of categorizing posts.

Kylie Jenner sparked engagment rumors with this Snapchat she posted on Nov. 11, 2017, with a ring on her finger.
