Actress Vivica A. Fox, 46, is having trouble curbing her enthusiasm.

The Independence Day star confirms that she got engaged over the holidays to boyfriend Omar "Slim" White, a 27-year-old concert promoter from Atlanta, Georgia.

"We did get engaged on Dec. 26," Fox told People. "And we are very happy!" In December, the actress raved about her fiance-to-be and future plans to become a mother on The Wendy Williams Show. "My career has been my baby for such a long time and I've done well by that," she said. "I waited for God to send me a good man, and he's a good Southern man."

A few days ago, Fox was seen at LeBron James' 26th birthday party sporting an eight karat diamond ring. "She is over the moon – so excited, so in love," a source said. "They are both eager to start their lives together and have a family. She is so excited; it is heartwarming to be around her."

This will be Fox's second marriage. She divorced singer Christopher Harvest in 2002 after four years together. —KIMBERLY STEELE
