Maybe the third time’s the charm for singer/actress Vanessa Williams. She tied the knot for the third time with Buffalo, N.Y., businessman Jim Skrip, who she met in Egypt while crusing the Nile with one of her daughters.

People.com reports:

The actress tied the knot Saturday with fiancé Jim Skrip in front of their family and friends, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

Williams announced her engagement in September during a taping of The Queen Latifah Show.

“I got engaged,” the Ugly Bettystar, 52, confirmed after Latifah joked with her about being blinded by her new bling. “I have had a lot of good things happen … I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings.”

Earlier this year, she opened up to Madame Noire about meeting her now husband, who hails from her mother’s town of Buffalo, New York.

“You never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it,” she said. “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 10 years at that time.”

Congrats to the couple.
