Ryan O'Neal to Wed Farrah Fawcett

by at . Comments

Farrah Fawcett is fighting for her life, but longtime partner Ryan O'Neal told ABC news that "I've asked her to marry me, again, and she's agreed."

"We will, as soon as she can, say yes," O'Neal, 68, says of Fawcett, his companion since 1980. "Maybe we can nod her head," he said, laughing.

"I used to ask her to marry me all the time," O'Neal said for an interview with Barbara Walters, scheduled to air Friday on ABC's 20/20.

"But it just got to be a joke, you know. We just joked about it."

But now with Farrah Fawcett, 62, in a state of deteriorating health thanks to her cancer, "I promise you, we will," says Ryan O'Neal. "Absolutely."

Regarding dress for their upcoming wedding ceremony, the still-jocular Ryan O'Neal plans to look "like a gigolo. You know? And the little thin mustache and slicked-back hair. I don't know. We have fun, we tease about that."

We just hope son Redmond O'Neal gets out of jail in time to see it.
