From there, Williams went on to charge a niche in the music industry. Besides her sterling entertainment career, the 57-year-old also joggled in being a mom. 


According to People, Vanessa became a first-time mom at 24, when her career was booming. Therefore she had to be a working mom. 

Once speaking in an interview on how she combined motherhood and thriving entertainment career, she made it known that it was emotional as she once had to leave her infant baby for a trip.

The "Ugly Betty" star, however, made sure to be always present in her kids' lives. According to Daily Mail, the "Dreamin'" crooner made headlines in 2015 after she tied the knot with her lover, Jim Skrip, in a July Fourth celebration.
