Serena Williams Hilariously Trolls Fans Who Want to See Her Engagement Ring
Serena Williams is disseminating her engagement details on a strictly need-to-know basis.
After the tennis legend announced her engagement to 33-year-old Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian last week, fans’ knee-jerk reaction was to expect the seemingly obligatory engagement ring photo that has become the norm from celebrities nowadays.
Knowing this, the 35-year-old athlete took to Instagram to troll fans with a “sneak peek” of her new sparkler.
In the photo, a miniature taco tops a silver band where the gemstone should be.
“It was a corn tortilla of course in case you were wondering,” she wrote.
What’s more, Williams and her fiance were spotted out in Auckland, New Zealand, on Dec. 31, but she’s been keeping the ring turned around so no one can see the diamond!
On Dec. 29, Williams shared her engagement news in her own subreddit.
“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” Williams wrote from her verified Reddit account. “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,” she continued.
Ohanian also announced their engagement on Facebook along with an animated image of himself proposing to Williams. “She said yes,” he simply wrote.
The couple have kept their relationship very low key and only recently posed for a photo together, which Williams posted to social media.
