Patrick Swayze - Patrick Swayze's widow is engaged

Patrick Swayze's widow is engaged again.

Lisa Niemi, who was married to the 'Ghost' actor for 34 years before his death from pancreatic cancer in September 2009, is set to marry jeweller Albert DePrisco after he proposed earlier this week.

A spokesperson for the 'Beat Angel' actress told People.com: ''Albert proposed to Lisa on Christmas Eve.''

The couple began dating 18-months ago after being introduced by mutual friends at Lisa's birthday party.

The 57-year-old dancer previously admitted that she would like to find love again shortly after the first anniversary of Patrick's death.

She said: ''I would love companionship love. Absolutely. I hope I'm not one of these women who never want to have another relationship. But who knows, that's another bridge I'll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don't know. But I like to think that I can.''

Earlier this year, Kirstie Alley claimed that she fell in love with Patrick while filming 'North and South' but never acted on her feelings because they were both married.

She said: ''Both of us were married. We did not have an affair. But again, I think what I did was worse. Because I think when you fall in love with someone when you're married you jeopardise your own marriage and their marriage. It's doubly bad.''

Kirstie insisted she was good friends with Lisa and was even asked to speak at his funeral after Patrick died.
