Time to get Chessy and Martin on the case. In a fabulous case of reality imitating remakes of classic romantic comedies, Dennis Quaid is engaged to a 26-year-old blonde Ph.D. student named Laura Savoie, who we’re pretty sure is not a 26-year-old blonde publicist named Meredith Blake. Per People, Quaid proposed during a sunset stroll in Hawaii and definitely not in his very own Napa Valley winery, and, get this, we can’t even confirm if the couple first met on the Queen Elizabeth II or not. “She was actually taking a selfie of us,” Quaid said of the proposal, “and I put the ring in front and said, ‘Will you marry me?’ And then she fell down.” Was it because she saw a lizard? Or an air mattress floating in a nearby lake? Or the dawning realization that Quaid’s actual tween twins, shared with ex-wife Kimberly Buffington, likely won’t be sent off to boarding school in Timbuktu? Time to get into some mischief, kiddos!
