Yahoo— Serena Williams has announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, via, naturally, a Reddit post.

On the site’s “/r/isaidyes” forum, Williams wrote, “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. 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. 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.

Williams, one of the greatest tennis players of all time and one of the premier athletes in American history, holds 38 Grand Slam titles, including 22 won in singles. Her most recent major victory was at Wimbledon earlier this year.

Ohanian is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and in-demand speaker. The happy couple did not disclose a wedding date. Williams is, at present, preparing for the Australian Open next month.

They went to Rome by carriage?

A picture of the ring would have been just fine, but Serena is already proving to be a ride or die by using her engagement announcement to drive viewers to her future husband’s website.

Here is how her celebrity friends reacted on Twitter:

— LeBron James and the Cavaliers beat the Celtics 124-118 Thursday night but James didn’t think he played well at all. He blamed himself for Cleveland almost giving up a 20-point lead in the second half of the win.

“I think I was horrible tonight,” James said. “In every facet of the game, I was just pretty bad, and it’s unacceptable. I can’t do that if I want to help this team get to where we want to get to. So if there was a report card, I’d give myself an ‘F’ for tonight’s performance. I just got to be better.”

James committed eight turnovers in the game, two in the fourth quarter, one of which was a pass to Kyrie Irving that Avery Bradley stole before scoring to put the Celtics within three of the Cavaliers.

“I just didn’t see him, and definitely got to pay attention to what’s going on in the flow of the game,” James said of Bradley and the turnover. “So I was just throwing it back in to Kyrie, and he just jumped it, so if I was paying attention to him, with Avery being the defensive-minded guy he is, I should have seen him. So, big mistake.”

Cleveland’s coach Tyronn Lue called James’ pass “lackadaisical” and said James talked to the team about how badly he played.

“He came to the locker room and the bench and said, ‘My fault. I was terrible tonight. It won’t happen again,'” Lue said. “He took credit for it and took blame. And we moved on.”

James blamed his lack of concentration for his subpar play.

“My concentration at different parts of the game [was poor],” James said. “I had eight turnovers, and some of them were just plain stupid turnovers, especially the one that Avery Bradley got in the backcourt. I was just not concentrating on the game, so it’s not always about the statistics or not. It’s about how I go out and I approach the game. So, I was happy that I got two All-Stars alongside me, and I was able to carry us to a win.”

Today is James’ 32nd birthday.

— Rob Gronkowski was spotted on Thursday hanging out on a yacht in Miami with Ansel Elgort, the star of “Divergent,” and Jonathan Cheban, who is a good friend of the Kardashians.

Gronkowski is on injured reserve until next season while recovering from his back surgery earlier this month. So hopefully he took it easy with the partying.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Y’all just was gassing it. Gassing all that up. That what y’all was doing. Y’all was saying that. We knew what we had and stats speak for [themselves].” — Dont’a Hightower, on critics of the Patriots defense

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Bryce Brentz (28)
