Dick Van Dyke, 86, marries girlfriend half his age

Los Angeles: Veteran Hollywood actor Dick Van Dyke has tied the knot at the age of 86 with his 40-year-old girlfriend, makeup artist Arlene Silver.

The couple, who have been dating for a few years now, got married on February 29, reported Us magazine.

The `Chitty Chitty Bang Bang` star 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."

Van Dyke divorced first wife Margie Willett in 1984 after over three decades of marriage and four children together; he had a long-term partnership with Michelle Triola until her death in 2009.

His wedding to Silver was "kinda on the spur of the moment. We just decided Leap Day would be the best time to do it," said Van Dyke.

Silver was just as smitten. "He`s the happiest person I ever met. He`s got an infectious spirit."

"I`m not a loner. I have to have a life partner. I found the perfect one," Van Dyke added.
