    Comment from discussion I said yes.

    Alexis is romantic, yet knows how to be cute and silly, too.

    Look how cozy the couple looked just last month at a party, where they were each other's "bear necessities."

    And when Serena took to his Reddit platform to break the news about their engagement, he responded with an ultra-adorable, "you made me the happiest man on the planet."

    Not to mention, he reportedly proposed to her via a surprise trip to Rome and dinner at the same exact restaurant and table that the two first spoke. 

    Sounds like Serena got herself a sexy and smart keeper!
