Vanessa Williams is taking another shot at Happily Ever After!

The “Ugly Betty” star announced the happy news earlier today on “The Queen Latifah Show” after blinding the host with her sparkly engagement ring.

Distracted by the diamond on the singer’s left hand, Latifah had to ask for some confirmation.

“Oh, sorry, darling. I got engaged,” she said. “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 on this trip.”

“He’s a guy I met a year-and-a-half ago when I was on vacation with my daughter in Egypt,” Williams said of the Buffalo native, via “You go across the world to find somebody who’s six hours away.”
