Now this is the way to celebrate a birthday!

Vanessa Williams announced on a taping of The Queen Latifah Show that she's set to wed Jim Skrip of Buffalo, New York.

"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," Latifah says, joking with the actress.

"Oh sorry darling, Williams said, "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."

Queen Latifah on Her Mother's Battle with Scleroderma

Originally posted 05/01/2014 06:00PM

Despite her very public persona, Queen Latifah has long been private about her family life. But last spring as she was ramping up production for her syndicated daytime talk show, The Queen Latifah Show, the entertainer was taking on a personal commitment to take charge of her mother Rita Owens’s round-the-clock medical needs.

Owens, 64, was diagnosed last year with scleroderma, an incurable autoimmune disease that has caused scar tissue build up (pulmonary fibrosis) in her lungs. Owens also has pulmonary hypertension (blood pressure in the lungs), which impacts her ability to breathe.

“I wasn’t going to do the show unless she came here,” Latifah tells PEOPLE in its latest issue. “I knew she was dealing with her health issues sometimes and I would not be able to get to her as easily.”

They all do. Equally.

Amid the musical acts set for Sunday night's Grammy Awards, the biggest showstopper of all may be the live, on-air wedding of 34 couples.

During Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's performance of their hit "Same Love" (for which they'll be joined by Madonna), diverse couples – including gay, straight, of different ages and races – will wed, the New York Times reports. And Queen Latifah will officiate.

The weddings "will be in our minds the ultimate statement of equality, that all the couples are entitled to the same exact thing," Lewis said.
