Vivica A. Fox is engaged to Omar “Slimm” White, an Atlanta club promoter 20 years her junior. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, she revealed what the younger man brings to their relationship, as well as details on how they met, her engagement ring, her upcoming wedding and if they’re planning for kids.
On her engagement:
I got engaged the day after Christmas, so this cougar’s off the market. Daddy did good. That’s about 8 carats, so that says I’m taken. If you can’t come up better than this – bam! – keep it movin’.
On dating younger men:
Yeah, it happened. Slimm’s 27. [He’s 20 years younger than me.] It just happened. I don’t know why.
On what he brings to the table:
[Pause] Let your mind go to work! No, I’m kidding. He’s a sweetheart, he’s a southern gentleman. It was almost love at first sight when I first met him to be honest with you. I had been decidedly single for about 3 years and they say when you’re not looking that sometimes that’s when love happens. And that’s what happened.
On having a bi-coastal relationship:
I have a home in Atlanta and want to start a family. Soon. I need to. My clock’s ticking real bad.
On her wedding:
We’re planning to get married either late fall or early 2012.
