Entertainment icon Dick Van Dyke, who famously tripped over an ottoman each week in the opening credits of his popular 60s TV sitcom, has said “I do” to a woman he has fallen head over heels for– Arlene Silver.
Leaping over the age gap to find true love, the 86-year-old actor wed the 40-year-old makeup artist on Leap Day (February 29, 2012), RumorFix.com reports.
A friendship which began after a meeting at the SAG Awards six years ago led to Silver’s position as Van Dyke’s personal makeup artist. The couple’s feelings blossomed into romance over time, and in January 2012 the lovebirds announced their intention to walk down the aisle.
