The year 2016 is a big year for tennis superstar, Serena Williams.

While Drake has been busy IG boasting about his new flame, 47-year-old derrière extraordinaire Jennifer Lopez, his ex (whom packs even more in the rear), tennis GOAT Serena Williams, clapped back with news of her engagement.

She wrote: "I came home/A little late/Someone had a bag packed for me/And a carriage waited".

The athlete preferred to showcase her creative side when she broke the exciting news of her marriage in form of a lovely poem on 29 December.

The romantic scene occurred at the same table where the two stood when they met. But by choice. Down on one knee.

Serena says, "I've been wearing these bras for over 10 years!" And I said yes, wrote Williams. In true Reddit fashion, she posted her announcement on the site, within the I Said Yes subreddit.

It's certainly a time for celebration for Serena Williams and many of her fans will be happy for her.

Camila Cabello Leaving Fifth Harmony (Statement)
The statement says, "We are four strong, committed women who will continue with Fifth Harmony as well as our solo endeavors". Fifth Harmony have announced that Camila Cabello has left the group.

The 35-year-old Grand Slam champ has been very vocal on women in sports and how she has always been considered as the best in women's tennis only.

The relationship clearly did not go down well with Serena Williams, who remarked during the course of an interview in 2013 to Rolling Stone magazine: "She's still not going to be invited to the cool parties".

Ohanian made public the engagement on his Facebook page, according to CNN, with a link to Williams' Reddit post, writing: "She said yes".

Tomorrow, Williams and her sister Venus will play a charity tennis match with the All Blacks sensations and brothers Ardie and Julian Savea.

The official wedding date has not been announced yet.

Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams - she's engaged to her boyfriend, Alexis Ohanian! She and her fiance announced the engagement on Reddit, a popular social-media site that allows users to up-vote webpages that they like.
