Bride-to-be Serena is only focused on winning Aussie Open
SERENA Williams has insisted she won’t start planning her wedding until after the Australian Open has finished next month.
The 35-year-old professional tennis player – who previously dated Drake, Common and Grigor Dimitrov – announced in December that she was engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and has now said she “hasn’t thought” about her marriage plans because she’s too focused on her upcoming tournament.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, she said: “(Being engaged) feels good. I really haven’t thought about it too much, because I wasn’t even really gonna think about it until after the tournament.
“So, I just keep saying, ‘February, I’ll start looking at the bigger picture of my life.’ But right now, I’m just so focused that this is all I can think about.”
Last month, Williams revealed her engagement on her verified Reddit account, with a poem: “I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. 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.”
Serena – whose older sister Venus, 36, is also a champion tennis player – previously said she wants to have children “some day” but still feels like she is too young.
She explained: “I definitely want to have kids one day. And the older I get, the more I’m like, ‘I’m too young!’” – Bang Media
