Here is what Serena wrote:

I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited
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
This time he made it not by chance
But by choice
Down on one knee
He said 4 words

Meanwhile, Ohanian posted this to his Facebook account.

No word yet on a date — they both have busy schedules, so we will have to wait on that. Congratulations to the happy couple!
