Vanessa Williams poses with all her four children and her parents in a rare Christmas photo.
Vanessa Williams’ Christmas was pretty special this year with the presence of her parents and all her children under one Christmas tree. The singer/actress shared a glimpse of that gathering when she posted a rare photo of all her family members surrounding her during the festive season, including her dog.
On Christmas Eve, Vanessa delighted in the fact that her three daughters were home for Christmas when she shared a cute clip of them on her Instagram. Dressed in identical gingerbread costumes, Melanie, Jillian and Sasha treated their mother to a dance number which she captured in a boomerang snap.
The following day, the former beauty queen shared footages from their family pilates session led by her daughter Melanie whose father is Vanessa’s first husband, Ramon Hervey II. Vanessa and Ramon are likewise parents to their daughter Jillian and son Devin, 26.
On Christmas Day, Vanessa’s family gathered under the Christmas tree for a commemorative photo which she shared to her followers the following day. She used the snap to greet her fans a “Merry Christmas” and send “Warmest Wishes to All.”
Joining her in the photo were her parents and all her four children –including Sasha, her youngest, whom she shares with her other ex-husband, Rick Fox. Rick and Vanessa were married for five years from 1999 to 2004 and remain friends to this day while co-parenting their 18-year-old.
Now married to businessman Jim Skrip and a mother to adult children, Vanessa is very vocal about the joy they bring into her life. She’s proud of each of them and what they’ve accomplished. Jillian is a singer like her mother and is a member of a music group called Lion Babe.
Melanie dipped her feet into Hollywood at one time but decided to live a private life after.
Devin is a graphic designer who also boasts of a fit body and good looks.
Meanwhile, her youngest, Sasha who’s now in college recently made her mom proud when she modeled for Serena Williams’ clothing line.
It truly is a happy Christmas for Vanessa whose family put a big smile on her face during the holiday season.
