Today CNN.com reported that actress Tamera Mowry, 32 is engaged to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, 38. On July 29 E!Online reported that a “source” claimed Mowry’s family was against the engagement. However, actress’s representative released a statement saying “Tamera Mowry and her family are very proud to announce her recent, and first, engagement to Adam Housley.”

Housley popped the question last week in Venice, Italy.

Congrats! As a young woman who grew up watching Tamera and her family on television, I am excited to say the least.
