Dick Van Dyke is a newlywed once again -- at age 86.

Van Dyke and 40-year-old makeup artist Arlene Silver were married on Leap Day, the actor told RumorFix, after knowing each other for about six years. They met at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, he said, and she later became his personal makeup artist, then wife.

‘The last couple of years we kind of fell in love,’ he told the website. ‘She keeps up with me.’ The wedding Feb. 29 was, he said, ‘spur of the moment.’ Previously, Van Dyke had cohabitated with Michelle Triola for more than 30 years until her death in 2009. His first marriage, which ran from 1948 to 1982, gave him four children.


Silver -- now Arlene Silver-Van Dyke -- called her new hubby ‘the best,’ and ‘the happiest person.’

‘Always singing, always humming, always in a good mood,’ she told RumorFix shortly before the two burst out in song, collaborating on the theme song from ‘All in the Family.’

Sounds like newlyweds!
