It may no longer shock us when Serena Williams dominates the court, but she totally took us by surprise when she announced her engagement to boyfriend and Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian. And now she’s done it again, as she’s been spotted wearing her engagement ring, and despite the fact that celebs have been opting for (and upgrading to) whopper stones and settings, Serena’s may surprise you.

Even though Serena is one of the top tennis players of all time, snagging plump endorsement deals and jumping on various biz opportunities, AND despite the fact that Alexis is one of the folks behind the biggest sites online, Serena’s ring is quite modest — at least by celebrity standards.

Spending New Year’s in New Zealand, the pair were spotted at the airport on their way to jump on board a helicopter. Serena was looking as fab as always with a full-length gray coat over a simple white top and high-cut denim shorts with tennis shoes to match.

And while she was no doubt looking fierce AF, it was her hand that caught folks’ attention. That’s because her new engagement ring was on her finger. Though we’re unable to see it closely or get any specific details, the one thing we can see is that it’s not big. At all.

In fact, it looks quite simple. But we bet up close, it’s a stunner!
