Hey, life begins at the half-century mark, right?

"I've never had a male friend like I have with Tom," she gushes to the magazine of Tom Vitale, who she has been dating for nearly six years now.

Vitale proposed during a romantic trip to Italy.

"We're both still a little afraid of commitment, but over there, it was like our souls were calibrated. If the timing wasn’t right, I wouldn't have asked."

Valerie Bertinelli is about to be Mrs. Tom Vitale!

"If my life wasn’t starting to turn around, I couldn't have welcomed [Vitale] into it," Bertinelli says. "We just understood each other completely."

It's the second marriage for Bertinelli, who filed for divorce from '80s rock legend Eddie Van Halen in 2005 after nearly 25 years together.

They have a 19-year-old son, Wolfgang.

Congratulations to the will-be-newlyweds!


I'm happy for you Valerie. The last picture I saw of your boyfriend he was clean shaven & handsome. This time he looked seedy & unattractive with a hairy face. I know you love him any- which-way but give careful thought to your wedding pictures they will be around forever.


Good for her ... and her beau is a catch ... the Executive Vice President of Programming & Original Movies for Syfy channel. Maybe this means some couture space suit roles for Valerie ;-)
