Calista Flockhart is engaged. Harrison Ford popped the question to Flockhart. Somehow in this age of instant news, Ford and Flockhart have managed to keep their month-long engagement a secret.
Flockhart heard “the” question from Ford over Valentine’s Day. Ford and Flockhart were on vacation with Calista’s adopted son, Liam.
Ford, 66, and Flockhart, 44, have been dating for seven years. The Brothers and Sisters star has never been married and Ford was married twice before and has four children. Interesting note: Ford has three grandchildren.
Ford is one of the most successful box office draws of all time. Besides his Han Solo run in the Star Wars legacy, Ford is also Indiana Jones and revived that role last summer to the delight of audiences. His latest Indiana Jones installment earned a whopping $317 million.
Flockhart is enjoying a second go-around at television success. After rocking the world as Ally McBeal, Flockhart is earning raves on the hit show Brothers and Sisters.
“She’s brought a child back into my home,” Ford says of Flockhart. “My youngest, other than Liam, is 17. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be part of a child’s growing up, which is always an endless springtime. You see the blossoming and the growing and the nurturing and the payoff.”
Ford was People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 1998 and seems to most relish the honor of watching his fiance serve as mother.
“(She’s) the best in the world. She’s a mother by choice – she adopted Liam before we met, as a single parent, which is an awesome responsibility to take. She’s devoted herself to Liam and has done a really wonderful job raising him. I’m happy to now have a part of the job.”
So pop culture fans, Indiana Jones has finally popped the question to Ally McBeal.
No wedding date is set of yet. We’ll keep you posted!
