When Serena Williams announced her engagement to Reddit’s Alexis Ohanian in the nerdiest way possible, we were totally charmed. We were also loving her seemingly low-key engagement ring, a surprising choice for two people who happen to have a whole lotta money. But now, the tennis superstar has just given fans a glimpse at her fiancé’s rose petal-filled proposal, and we couldn’t be swooning harder.

Surprising the world with the news of their engagement (ya know, since it wasn’t widely known *at all* that they were even dating), nowadays, they just keep giving us more reasons to love their love. And that includes how Ohanian popped the question.

#tbt to "the day"

In a series of pics shared on Instagram, Serena Williams first shows us a rose petal encircled pool-side table, with what appears to be a bottle of Champagne ready to be shared by a loving pair. Captioning the pics with “#tbt to ‘the day’,” we can definitely see why she might have said “yes.” Romance, FTW!

Although when you take a peek at the other two pics, showing the newly engaged couple together, you can definitely see another reason she said yes: These two are obviously very much in love.
