Dennis proposed to her during their vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii. In an interview with Extra, the Breaking Away star revealed that he had put a lot of effort into the proposal. In his own words:

I had the ring in my pocket… It has been kind of a month-and-a-half plan… I wanted it to be private. She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, 'Will you marry me?' — and then she fell down

While the two have 39 years of an age gap between them, the issue doesn’t seem to bother the couple at all.

The Day After Tomorrow star, who found love once again in his mid-60s, has even confessed that this would be his last marriage.

Previous Relationships

The famous movie actor has been married and divorced thrice previously.

His first wife was P.J. Soles, whom he met on the set of Our Winning Season in 1978. The two actors seemed to hit a common note as both of them fell head over heels for each other in no time. The same year on 23rd November, they tied the knot. Unfortunately, their relationship ended after five years on 23rd August 1983.

Dennis spent the next few years as a bachelor until he met Meg Ryan in 1987. The two remained friends until they got on set together for D.O.A. (1988). During the filming period, the co-stars got romantically involved and began dating.

Three years later, in 1991, the pair got married and welcomed their son, Jack Quaid, a year later. The movie star couple remained together for a decade before parting ways in 2001.
