Patrick Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi Swayze, became engaged this Christmas. Niemi, 57, who was married to Swayze for 34-years, has been dating Jeweler Albert DePrisco, 58 for about a year and a half, according to USA Today on Dec. 29.

Swayze and Niemi had a rare Hollywood marriage that spanned over three-decades. Swayze died in 2009 of pancreatic cancer and it was hard for her without the love of her life and her best friend.

The two met and started dating when Niemi was 15. So they spent their lifetime together until Swayze’s death.

Niemi was introduced to DePrisco through mutual friends. A few years back when Niemi was asked if she’d ever marry again, she said that she would like to think that she wasn’t “one of these women who never want another relationship.” She also said she was open to the prospect of getting remarried.

She told People in this interview back in 2010, “But who knows, that’s another bridge I’ll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don’t know. But I like to think that I can.”
