Little Laura Ingalls is all grown up. In fact, the actress who played Laura, Melissa Gilbert, just got married for the third time! Gilbert, 48, wed thirtysomething star Timothy Busfield, 55, “in a private ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara on April 24,” the star’s rep tells Hollywood.com.
Gilbert, who first rose to fame as a child star on Little House on the Prairie recently re-entered the spotlight when she competed on Dancing with the Stars. And Gilbert’s new husband, Busfield, is also a fellow actor. He starred in the hit TV series thirtysomething and The West Wing and also has two movies — Nightcomer and 23 Blast — set to come out this year.
They say the third time is a charm, which must be the mindset of Gilbert and Busfield (who got engaged in 2012) as both have been previously married twice. And since they are both talented TV actors, they should maybe think about coming out with a modern version of The Brady Bunch. Gilbert has two children and Busfield has three, so they are practically on track to cast a similar sitcom. Now that would be a show worth watching!
