Vanessa Williams weds: Vanessa Williams Skrip, A beaming Vanessa Williams is seen here on her wedding day – after getting hitched for the third on Saturday.
The 52-year-old star wed her partner of three years, Jim Skrip, in front of friends and family on Independence Day in his – and her mother’s – hometown of Buffalo, New York.
Vanessa wore an intricate yellow dress for the occasion while the groom wore a grey suit and red tie.
The Ugly Betty star’s representative confirmed to People Magazine that the star had once again walked down the aisle on the July Fourth holiday.
While the rest of their wedding details remain private, previously the star gushed about her former accountant beau who she met while holidaying in Egypt in 2012.
She told Madame Noire: ‘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.
He happened to be traveling alone and happened to know who I was but wasn’t a super fan. He accepted me for who I was after a wonderful first three-hour date of talking about ourselves. We found out we had a lot of things in common. Three years later we’re getting married.’
Vanessa confirmed her engagement on The Queen Latifah Show back in September.
The former beauty queen turned actress is no stranger to heading down the aisle, having done it twice before.
The star was married Ramon Hervey from 1987 to 1997 and they share daughters Melanie, 28, and Jillian, 26, and son Devin, 22.
She was also married to Rick Fox and they divorced in 2005 after six years of marriage, and have a daughter Sasha, 15.
