Dick Van Dyke Marries His Make-Up Artist Girlfriend

10 Mar

Dick Van Dyke married Arlene Silver, his 40-year-old make-up artist, on Leap Day, February 29.

In an interview with RumorFix, the star of Diagnosis Murder and Mary Poppins said he met Silver at the SAG Awards six years ago, and “was bowled over by her beauty”. He then hired Silver to be his personal makeup artist, which led to a friendship. “The last couple of years we kind of fell in love…She keeps up with me.”

His wedding to Arlene was “kinda on the spur of the moment” the star explained. “We just decided Leap Day would be the best time to do it.”

This is the second marriage for the 89-year-old star, he was married to Margie Willett for 36 years, with whom he had four children, before divorcing in 1984 after a long separation. The star also lived with actress Michelle Triola from 1976 until her death of lung cancer in 2009.

His 40-year-old wife is just as smitten: “He’s the happiest person I ever met. He’s got an infectious spirit,” she told RumorFix. “I’m not a loner,” Van Dyke added. “I have to have a life partner. I found the perfect one.”
