Serena Williams is spotted for the first time since shocking us all with engagement news. Meanwhile, Chris Rock and his girlfriend Megalyn Euchikunwoke are gearing up for a romantic vacation together. Flicks inside…
Yesterday, Serena Williams shocked the world with news that she’s an engaged woman now. Yep! The tennis pro is set to marry Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, whom she had been dating for a little over a year. They’ve managed to keep their relationship super private and only letting folks in when they want. In celebrity relationships, it seems the less they share the longer they stay together.
Anywho, the 22-Grand Slam winner was spotted for the first time since announcing she is engaged. The media swarmed the tennis super star after touching down at Auckland Airport in New Zealand ahead of the ASB Classic tennis tournament that’s set to go down next week.
Of course, reporters asked the bride-to-be questions about the engagement, but she remained mum. However, she did talk briefly about her sister Venus Williams encouraging her to come to New Zealand.
“It was all Venus, so we should just thank Venus when she arrives,” she said. “She told me it was great and that I should come and I always listen to my big sister. It’s always fun to go places you’ve never been and I’m excited to be here.”
It wasn’t long before Rena made her way to a tennis court to get in some practice:
Rena is gearing up to dominate the court in the ASB Classic next week. It will be her first tournament since playing in the US Open (back in September) as she prepares for the Australian Open, which is the first Grand Slam event of the tennis season.
