(Newser) – Dick Van Dyke is a married man again: The 86-year-old wed 40-year-old makeup artist Arlene Silver at the end of last month, he tells RumorFix. The two met six years ago, and a smitten Van Dyke hired her to do his makeup. "The last couple of years we kind of fell in love," he says. "I found the perfect one." The actor's first marriage ended in divorce, and he later lived with partner Michelle Triola for more than 30 years before her death, notes People.

Good for him to find love. He;s been providing good feelings throughout America his entire adult life. actually feel sad for hm in one regard. He should be as rich as Midas for the amount of comedy he has given us. Instead, he has to live with the earnings of early TV when no one was paid well. I wish him well into the next experience. And to his younger bride? Enjoy him sweety. He may not be here past the next 50 years, but he will live in our hearts for longer. Good luck to the both of you.
