Vanessa Williams is engaged!

The actress announced she’s going to marry Jim Skrip during a taping of “The Queen Latifah Show,” which will air on Tuesday.

At one point in a segment with Williams, Blair Underwood and Cicely Tyson — her co-stars in a touring stage revival of “The Trip To Bountiful” — Queen Latifah said, “Vanessa, I have been trying to have a conversation with you ladies and gents, but I am blinded by the light coming from that bling ring on your finger.”

That’s when Williams explained, “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.”

There was then a close-up of the huge diamond ring (see below).

This is Williams’ third trip down the aisle, having previously been married to Ramon Hervey and Rick Fox.

Her production of “The Trip To Bountiful” opens in L.A. on Friday.

Watch the clip below of Williams’ engagement announcement.
