Vanessa Williams ties the knot!

According to reports, Williams and her fiancé Jim Skrip got hitched Saturday evening, on the 4th of July. “Road trip for the holiday weekend,” the new bride tweeted just two days prior to tying the knot. “Happy 4th.”

News of the couple’s engagement first broke last fall when the “Ugly Betty” alum flaunted her giant, new sparkler on the since cancelled “Queen Latifah Show.”

“I got engaged. I have had a lot of good things happen while I’ve been on this lovely trip,” she revealed to Queen Latifah. “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.”

Williams, 52, and the former accountant first met in 2013 in Egypt. “You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away,” the Broadway star told in February 2014.

This is the third marriage for Williams. She shares daughters Melanie, 28, and Jillian, 26, and son Devin, 22, with ex-husband Ramon Hervey, whom she was married to from 1987 to 1997. She and Rick Fox split in 2005 after six years of marriage, and share daughter Sasha, 15.

Wishing Williams and her new hubby the best of luck!
