The engagement news was confirmed by Williams’ rep to People.
The couple has been dating for three years, and they met via mutual friends.
NBC news anchor Brian Williams’ daughter revealed in an interview with the March issue of Glamour that she wants to start a family.
“My goal is to create a career I can walk away from and become a mom,” Williams, 25, told the mag. “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.”
Congratulations to Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen!
