Laura Savoie is the 26-year-old Ph.D. student who got engaged to Dennis Quaid, 65, after the actor proposed to her in Hawaii over the weekend.
Quaid told Extra that he proposed to Savoie on the “very northernmost part of Oahu, at Turtle Bay.” He claimed that the proposal was a surprise and was “kind of spontaneous.”
According to Quaid, he proposed while Savoie was taking a selfie of them together. The Parent Trap actor said he’d been planning the surprise for more than a month. He had the ring in his pocket all the time and when Savoie was taking a selfie, he pulled it out and put it in front of her, asking, “Will you marry me?”
Quaid is nearly forty years older than Savoie. And while Savoie has never been married, this will be Quaid’s fourth marriage.
Dennis Quaid’s ex-wives are Pamela Jayne Soles (1978-1983), Meg Ryan (1991-2001), and Kimberly Buffington (2004-2018).
Quaid already has three children, which means Savoie is going to become a stepmom. Quaid’s children include his eldest son Jack, 27, with ex-wife Meg Ryan, and 11-year-old twins Zoe Grace and Thomas Boone, with ex-wife Kimberly Buffington.
Savoie and Quaid were first spotted together in June 2019. They dated only a few months before getting engaged in October.
Fans already know a lot about Quaid’s personal life and his acting career, but very little is known about Savoie. If you’ve been wondering who Dennis Quaid’s fiancee is, here is what we know about her.
