…Actress Malinda Williams Is Engaged!

The beautiful and talented actress Malinda Williams (Soul Food, Daddy’s Little Girls, Idlewild, First Sunday) is engaged! Her new fiancé, Mr. Tariq M. Walker, popped the big question and “she said yes!” or as Malinda will tell you, “We said yes!”

“We are engaged and we couldn’t be more happy about spending our lives together,” shared Malinda. “To be honest from the moment we realized we were made for each other, we also recognized the impact we had on one another’s desire to be better individuals, and inspired the best in each other. That is where ‘we said yes’ came in. We said yes to encouraging each other to reach higher and deeper for greater.”

Malinda is an ambassador for National Proposal Day (March 20th). National Proposal Day takes place the first day of Spring as it represents a time for new beginnings and the time of year that the world comes to life. In honor of National Proposal Day, Malinda will be releasing a tribute called “3 Icons of Love” —where she will transform, along with her fiancé, into popular couples re-creating images of couples which include President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, Malcolm X and his wife Betty Shabazz and Billie Dee Williams and Diana Ross from the movie “Mahogany” to honor beautiful and loving relationships. She will release and showcasing one of the “3 Icons of Love” photos each day on her IG page (@malinsworld) starting on Thursday March 21 through to March 23rd. Congrats to the lovely couple!
