DePrisco, a jeweler, proposed to Niemi on Christmas Eve. Niemi and DePrisco have been dating for a year and a half. The couple met at a birthday party for Niemi through mutual friends.
Niemi has been a widow since Swayze died in September 2009 from pancreatic cancer. Swayze and Nieme married in 1975 and were married for 34 years. The couple met when Niemi took dance lessons from Swayze’s mother.
Swayze was best known for his roles in the films “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost.”
Niemi said in an interview shortly after Swayze’s death that she was open to marrying again. Niemi expressed that she definitely wanted to have companionship again.
It looks like Lisa Niemi, 57, and Albert DePrisco, 58, have found love again in each other.
