The 35-years-old athlete shared the story of their first encounter and their engagement in a poetic text. “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome” she wrote.“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 knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes,” Williams continued. The text was accompanied by a drawing featuring cartoon versions of Williams and Ohanian, the latter on one knee offering a huge diamond to the champ ! How cute is that ?
Congrats to the couple !
