Lisa Niemi is Engaged!
After losing her husband of 34 years to cancer, Lisa Niemi has found love again with jeweler Albert DePrisco.
The dancer/actress' late husband, "Dirty Dancing" star Patrick Swayze, passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2009 at the age of 57.
Shortly after losing her husband, Lisa looked to the future, not ruling out falling in love again, saying, "I would love companionship love. 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.”
Her new husband-to-be proposed on Christmas Eve, after dating for a year and a half. Congratulations to the happy couple!
