Williams first announced her engagement to Skrip last fall during a taping of The Queen Latifah Show, when she revealed to the host:

“I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen … I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings.”

Earlier this year, she opened up to Madame Noire about meeting her now husband, who hails from her mother’s town of Buffalo, N.Y.

“You never know what you’ll find and where,” she said. “I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile.”

“I wasn’t looking for anything,” Vanessa added. “I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for 10 years at that time.”

Skrip “accepted me for who I was after a wonderful first three-hour date of talking about ourselves. We found out we had a lot in common.”

This is the third marriage for Williams, who has four children with exes Ramon Hervey II and Rick Fox. Congratulations to the couple!
