That's some diamond! Serena Williams has shown off her engagement ring for the very first time, and it's seriously impressive. The 35-year-old tennis champion took to Reddit on Thursday to share a photo of herself and her fiancé, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, 33, looking very much in love while out on a date night – and featured prominently in the picture is the enormous new rock adorning her finger.

The sweet snapshot shows Serena striking a pose in a white top and black skirt, while kicking up her leg and tilting her head back. (True to her athletic roots, she paired her outfit with a pair of black Nike trainers.) Alexis, meanwhile, is all smiles as he stands next to his bride-to-be, looking very dapper in a navy suit.

"I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage awaited," she wrote. "Destination: Rome/ To escort me to my very own 'charming'/ Back to where our stars first collided."

She continued, "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 one knee/ He said 4 words/ And I said yes."

Alexis responded to the post, sweetly writing, "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."
