Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze’s Widow, Is Engaged
Four years after she lost her husband to pancreatic cancer, Lisa Niemi, Patrick Swayze’s widow, has found love again, and is engaged!
Jeweler Albert DePrisco, 58, proposed to Niemi on Christmas Eve, according to Niemi’s rep. The couple met a couple years ago, through mutual friends, and have been dating for over a year and a half.
The Dirty Dancing star passed away in September 2009, after a long battle with cancer. Shortly after, in 2010, Niemi told PEOPLE that she would consider remarrying if the right person ever came along.
“I would love companionship love. Absolutely,” she said. “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.”
