The Desperate Housewives actress revealed news she’ll be tying the knot with boyfriend Jim Skrip during an interview on The Queen Latifah Show.

The conversation first came up when host Queen Latifah noticed a huge ring on Vanessa’s wedding finger.

"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," Queen chuckled.

Vanessa quickly clarified the source of her dazzling jewellery.

And the Desperate Housewives star made it clear she is elated to be walking down the aisle again with Buffalo, New York native Jim.

"Oh sorry darling, I got engaged,” she said. “I have had a lot of good things happen ... I turned 51 when we were in rehearsal on Broadway, I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings."

Vanessa has previously spoken about why parenthood is so important to her.

"Motherhood is one of the greatest gifts and surprises in life," she declared to People magazine. "You always have to be prepared for the unexpected. You have to be able to surrender to whatever situation it is and do the best you can at any moment.”
