The Moonlighting star recently announced her engagement to Serbian psychologist Andrei Nikolajevic and the 62 year old reveals the couple has her best friend to thank for the romance.
She tells U.S. talk show The View, “My best friend introduced us. It was a blind date.”
Shepherd admits she has yet to start thinking about planning her wedding and she’s keen to take things in her stride now she has found happiness once again.
She adds, “I found someone who really makes me laugh, who I can’t imagine not having as my companion… It’s the whole, complete package. I’m very happy.”
It will be the screen veteran’s third marriage – she was previously wed to nightclub entertainer David M. Ford and divorced chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim in 1990.
