Los Angeles: Actress Vanessa Williams has gotten engaged to boyfriend Jim Skrip. The 50-year-old actress, while showing off her diamond ring on a chat show, shared the news with her fans, reportedly.

"I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen. I turned 50 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings on this trip," she said.

Williams is currently touring in the revival of the drama 'The Trip Bountiful', in which she plays Jessie Mae Watts.

The 'Desperate Housewives' alum was previously married to public relations consultant Ramon Hervey, with whom she shares daughters Melanie, 27, and Jillian, 25, and son Devin, 21. She is also mother to daughter Sasha, 14, with her second ex-husband, former NBA player Rick Fox.
