Being Mary Jane' Star Raven Goodwin Is Engaged to Actor Micah Williams
Raven Goodwin is engaged! The actress, known for playing Niecy Patterson on BET’s “Being Mary Jane,” shared the happy news with a photo of her and her fellow actor fiancé.
Goodwin, 26, has been very private about her relationship, but couldn’t help sharing over the weekend that she said “Yes” to her “Good Luck Charlie” co-star Micah Williams.
In a photo posted to Instagram, Goodwin donned a peach dress with plunging neckline that showed off ample cleavage while holding hands with Williams who looked dapper in a blue suit. The actor’s look of love for his bride-to-be was also very evident.
“Timeless,” Goodwin captioned the image of her showing off her engagement ring while hashtagging the words “my fiancé.”
Although the “Nobody’s Fool” star and Williams, 28, have managed to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, the lovebirds have reportedly been dating since 2009.
