Actress Cybill Shepherd has gotten engaged.
The 'Taxi Driver' star has agreed to marry jeweller-turned-psychologist Andrei Nikolajevic.
Until her recent engagement, Cybill - who was formerly married to David Ford and Bruce Oppenheim - ruled out the possibility of finding a permanent life partner.
She told New York's Daily News: ''I never thought I'd get married again.
The 'Client List' and 'Cybill' actress admitted that the proposal was, ''Very romantic and on one knee.''
The 62-year-old screen star has three grown children from her previous marriages.
In 1978 she married auto parts dealer and nightclub entertainer David M. Ford and the following year became pregnant with daughter Clementine Ford. They divorced in 1982.
In 1987 she became pregnant by chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim and married him, giving birth to twins Cyrus Zachariah and Molly Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim during the fourth season of her show 'Moonlighting'.
They were divorced in 1990.
In 2006, during an interview about her show 'The L Word' she said more than once that she was ''turned on'' by the lesbian sex scenes:
She said: ''If you look at what we know about men, women and our sexuality, a great majority of people are bisexual. So what's wrong with that?''
She has confessed to having a longtime crush on Salma Hayek and admits to having fantasized about her.
She said in another interview: ''I have wondered about lesbianism ... At various times in my life I wanted to be open to the possibility of having a woman as a lover. I am not actively pursuing it but it is not over yet.''
