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. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
Williams and Ohanian had been dating for about a year, and were relatively private about their relationship prior to this announcement.
The happy couple did not disclose a wedding date. Williams is, at present, preparing for the Australian Open next month.
