Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cheryl Hines are engaged. The pair made it official last week, sharing the news with friends at the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night, Us Weekly is reporting.

The Suburgatory star and the environmental lawyer began dating after he’d become estranged from his second wife, Mary early in 2012.

They were going through a protracted divorce and child custody battle when Mary committed suicide that May, hanging herself in the barn on their New York estate.

As radio detection and ranging reported, her family blamed Kennedy for Mary’s tragic state of mind. They even fought over where she would be buried.

Kennedy and Mary had four children. He has two other children from his first marriage.
