Melissa Gilbert and Timothy Busfield get engaged




Yes, Dancing With the Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert and West Wing actor Timothy Busfield are hoping the third time is indeed the charm, because they are now engaged. To each other. After two marriages apiece. Good luck, kids.

"They got engaged over the holidays," a source told Us Weekly. "They've known each other for quite some time, as their paths have crossed off-and-on over the past 20 years." So of course the natural thing to do is get married. Seriously, why not?

The couple celebrated with an engagement dinner in Beverly Hills on Monday. Little House on the Prairie alum Gilbert, 48, was previously married to Bo Brinkman and most recently Bruce Boxleitner, whom she divorced in 2011. Thirtysomething star Busfield, 55, was in marriages to Radha Delmarter and Jenny Meriwin. No date has been set, but since these two are old hands at this, expect them to get hitched at a drive-through chapel.
