Patrick Swayze's widow, Lisa Niemi, is engaged to Albert DePrisco, a 58-year-old jeweler. He proposed on Christmas Eve after a year and a half of dating.
Niemi first went public with DePrisco last October in Miami.
The duo met through a mutual friend at a birthday party.
Reports surfaced last month claiming Niemi and DePrisco were headed for marriage. She allegedly bought a condo in Boca Raton, Fla., to be close to him.
Swayze and Niemi married in 1975, and were together until his death in 2009 from pancreatic cancer. She waited three years to remove her wedding ring.
So why'd she take it off?
