The Heathers and True Romance star was previously married to Ryan Haddon. They have two children, a son, Jaden Christopher, and a daughter, Eliana.

Christian Slater, an A-lister in the '80s and '90s, will star in the upcoming ABC series Mind Games, as well as director Lars von Trier's film Nymphomaniac.

Slater officially announced his engagement to Brittany Lopez back in February 2013 during an appearance on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

"Congratulations, you're engaged!" Jimmy Fallon said to Slater, who replied, "Yeah, that's true," before giving the show's audience the thumbs-up.

Slater said that he met Lopez when he was staying on Florida's Little Palm Island a few years ago, and it was an unusual way to meet your future wife.

"This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady, and I was sitting in my usual spot eating my oatmeal that morning," he explained.

"So I'm a filthy old man eating my oatmeal and she comes walking along. This spot, I guess, was famous for people proposing to each other, actually."

"It was very, very nice. So she's there with this old lady and, next thing I know, she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady."

"I'd seen a lot of crazy stuff down in the Florida Keys! I of course was very intrigued and I went over and sat down in my other usual spot."

"I thought I'd just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement so I was coming over to say congratulations," Slater continued, but that was not the case.

"It turns out it was her aunt and she was just trying to help her capture the beauty of the park...The next thing I knew we were hanging out in the Everglades."

And the rest is history!
