There have been so many Hollywood breakups over the past few weeks, but the good thing is with the couples splitting up here and there, some couples are tying the knot as well! According to Daily Mail, Vanessa Williams has tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Jim Skrip in a July fourth ceremony. Read below for the full details.

September of last year, Williams announced her engagement on “The Queen Latifah Show.” Skrip met the “Ugly Betty” star during a Nile Cruise in 2013 and it was actually Williams who first approached Skrip. It was thanks to his Buffalo Sabres shirt because Williams’ mother hails from Buffalo and since then, the two hit it off.

This marks as Williams’ third marriage. She was previously married to former husbands, Ramon Hervey II and basketball player Rick Fox. Williams has four children.

During the ceremony, Williams wore a yellow dress while her groom wore a grey suit and red tie.

Just recently, the star talked about her fiance telling their story about how they met.

“I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything. I’d been alone for a number of years and divorced for ten years at that time. I found a hometown guy from my mom’s town in Buffalo, New York and started a conversation.” Williams said.

Still, love is in the air in Hollywood and hopefully this pair stays together forever! They look so cute together and so in love. We are happy for Vanessa Williams and Jim Skrip!
