Veteran actress Cybill Shepherd is getting married. The 62-year old performer, who is best known for her work over the years in series like Moonlighting and The Client List, announced that she is engaged to her boyfriend Andrei Nikolajwvic.
Shepherd’s fiancé is a psychologist, who was previously a jeweler she explained. “He was a jeweler. Now, he’s a psychologist. He’s Serbian.” Nikolajwvic popped the big question when the two were in New York together a couple weeks ago. “It was very romantic and on one knee. I never thought I’d get married again,” Shepherd shared after being presented with a sparkling diamond set upon a white gold band.
Admitting that she was never planning to marry again after walking down the alter twice with ex-husband David Ford back in 1978 and Bruce Oppenheim in 1987, Shepherd’s feelings have changed and so hasn’t her outlook on life, she says, since entering into her 60’s. “I feel like I’m just peaking now. When I started my 50s I started ‘The Change’. Some people call it menopause, I like to call it ‘The Change’.” Adding, “You can see that you’re not going to live forever.”
The couple reportedly met through friends. Cybill did not sure when the two plan to wed but we’re guessing it will be a modest affair. Both Shepherd and Andrei Nikolajwvic have “managed to stay under the radar,” the actress shared a while back when talking about their relationship. Stating that she is “very happy” with her life.
Currently Shepherd is working on the second season of the Lifetime series ‘The Client List’ alongside her on screen daughter Jennifer Love-Hewitt where she plays the character Linette. She is also attached to star in the 2012 movie ‘White Camellias’.
