Valerie Bertinelli is engaged to her boyfriend of six years, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
"We'd talked about getting married, but I was still shocked. It was sweet when he asked me, because he was so scared. I was like, 'Are you kidding me?'" Bertinelli, 50, told AARP The Magazine.
Her fiancé, Tom Vitale, knew it was the right time to ask while on a trip to Italy. "We're both still a little afraid of commitment, but then we were over there, and it was like our souls were calibrated," Vitale said.
The couple has been together since 2004.
Bertinelli, who has a 19-year-old son with former longtime husband Eddie Van Halen, is best known for her role on One Day at a Time. She will next appear in Hot in Cleveland, a series focusing on Los Angeles pals who decide to stay in Cleveland because the locals find them glamorous. Betty White, Jane Leeves and Wendie Malick also star.
