Allison Williams, the daughter of NBC News anchor Brian Williams, is engaged!
The actress, who plays Marnie on the HBO series, is getting married to her longtime boyfriend Ricky Van Veen.
Van Veen, who is the co-founder of College Humor, met Williams through mutual friends and they have dated for three years.
Allison told Glamour magazine earlier this month that she would “walk away from” her career in order to have kids.
The actress said, “I’d love to be a mom — and not have to bring my kids into my trailer…Or a balance (of both). But you’ve (got to) call it on the fly to a certain extent.”
In an interview with Larry King in January, Williams said her boyfriend and friends were getting used to her new fame, and were “very good at taking cellphone pictures” with fans.
King what her news anchor father thought of Van Veen, Williams smiled and replied, “He likes him a lot.”
Allison Williams told talk-show host Chelsea Handler that she watches the show’s many sex scenes on “Girls” with her entire family, including her father. She joked, “People are vomiting in their chairs”.
