The athlete announced the news of her engagement in true 2016 style on Reddit by sharing a poem to the site.

"I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome," the 35-year-old wrote.

"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."
