(Newser) – Romance may sometimes die, but it can also be resurrected. Just ask Empire's Terrence Howard, who People reports has slipped an engagement ring on a woman he's already been married to. The 49-year-old actor, who has two young sons with Mira Pak, proposed to his ex Sunday night at a dinner with friends and family, pledging that this time, he's with her for the long haul, per Fox News and TMZ. "It took me 45 years to find you, honey," he said during a toast (TMZ has video). "But now that I have you in my 50th year, I will spend the rest of eternity at your side."

Howard also posted on Instagram a pic of Pak's new jewelry addition, which TMZ says it's been told is worth $1 million. Howard and Pak were married the first time around in 2013 and divorced in 2015, when Pak was pregnant with their first child. This won't be the first time Howard, who's been married a total of five times, says "I do" to the same woman twice: He walked down the aisle with ex-wife Lori McCommas two times and has three kids with her, per Fox News. He was also previously married (once) to Michelle Ghent. (Howard once said in an interview he'd turned his back on premarital sex.)
