Patrick Swayze's Widow Is Engaged!

Lisa Niemi, the widow of Patrick Swayze, dines at Mr Chows in HollywoodThe actress-dancer Lisa Niemi, 57, who had been married to Patrick Swayze for 34 years, got a very interesting Christmas present.

Her boyfriend, jeweler Albert DePrisco, 58, proposed to her on Christmas Eve.

I can’t imagine what it would be like to find love after such a long and devoted romance as Lisa’s and Patrick’s seemed to be.

But Lisa herself never closed the door.

Patrick died in September 2009. A year later, Lisa told People magazine, “I would love companionship. Absolutely. I hope I’m not one of these women who never want to have another relationship. But who knows, that’s another bridge I’ll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don’t know. But I like to think that I can.”

Lisa met Albert at a birthday party mutual friends threw for her a year and a half ago.
