After two years of dating, Robert F Kennedy Jr. and Cheryl Hines are engaged!

This is one thing we can get Enthusiastic about! Attorney Robert F Kennedy Jr., 60, proposed to Curb Your Enthusiasm actress Cheryl Hines — and she said yes!

Cheryl Hines Engaged To Robert F. Kennedy

The couple, who began dating in 2012, shared the big news on April 29 at Muhammad Ali‘s Celebrity Fight Night in Pheonix, Arizona, Us magazine reported.

“We share the same values,” Cheryl, 48, told Us magazine at an event in March. “Family first. We like to have a good time and work hard.”

His family is one famous one, too. He’s the son of Ethel and Robert F. Kennedy.

She also said that they actually went scuba diving together — and “he picked up a starfish at the bottom of the ocean, and gave it to me.” That sounds adorable!

Since they started dating, they’ve actually become adventurists!

“I do feel like I’m more of a survivalist now. I appreciate socks like I never have before. Apparently when you’re out in the wild, your socks can really be helpful. You can strain water,” she said. Plus, they go to different events together — he accompanies her on carpets and helps with charities she’s involved in, while she helps him do environmental events.

This will be the third marriage for Robert and the second for Cheryl. She has no kids yet, but he already has six! He had Bobby III, 29, and Kathleen, 26, with first wife Emily Ruth Black, and Conor, 19, Kyra, 18, Finn, 16, and Aiden, 13, with second wife, the late Mary Kathleen Richardson.

We’re so happy for these two!
