Patrick Swayze's wife is set to tie the knot again.

After losing her husband to pancreatic cancer in September 2009, Lisa Niemi has found new love with 58-year-old jeweler Albert DePrisco, according to People.

The 57-year-old actress-dancer's rep told the mag DePrisco popped the question to Niemi on Christmas eve, after dating her for a year and a half.

Niemi and DePrisco reportedly met at her birthday party after connecting through a mutual friend.

Swayze and Niemi had been married for 34 years before his death, and a month after he passed, Niemi spoke at the Women's Conference 2009 in Long Beach, Calif., telling attendees how she was coping.

"I am so grateful for what I had and my connection to [Patrick], and part of me believes that I will see him again, and I'm just going to have to go on until then," Niemi said.

And go on she did.

Swayze went on to tell People in 2010 that she was open to marrying again, saying, "I would love companionship love. Absolutely. I hope I'm not one of these women who never want to have another relationship. But who knows, that's another bridge I'll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don't know. But I like to think that I can."

I'm very happy that she can move on and find love again, and damn it's been that long since he has passed away? Doesn't seem that long ago
