The 65-year-old actor proposed to girlfriend Laura Savoie, 26, after several months of dating, the star confirmed to Extra over the weekend.
“I had the ring in my pocket,” gushed Quaid to the outlet. “It has been kind of a month-and-a-half plan — I wanted it to be private.”
The “Parent Trap” actor revealed he waited for the perfect sunset to pop the question.
“She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, ‘Will you marry me?’ And then she fell down,” said Quaid.
