Remember when Serena Williams announced her engagement to Alexis Ohanian, the cofounder of the social news site Reddit? How did that happen???
Williams explained at the TED 2017 conference during an onstage interview with CBS television host Gayle King. From Yahoo!:
During the interview, King joked that she never would have expected Williams to end up with “a nerdy geek.”
“I didn’t either,” Williams replied, to audience laughter. “I never felt pressured to get married, and I can’t say I’m the marrying type of person,” she said. “I love my life, I love my freedom, and I love my career. I always felt I didn’t want anything to interfere with that.”
When asked how she knew Ohanian was “the one,” Williams laughed. “I’m … not going to say that [out loud]. But really, he’s very loving and he’s very kind. He’s very considerate.”
Serena also revealed that the initial pregnancy photo she posted on Snapchat was put up accidentally. “You know how social media is, you press the wrong button and … 30 minutes later I missed 4 calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird,'” she said. “But it was a good moment.”
Accidental or not, things seem to still be going great for Serena.
