Robert Redford has got engaged.
The 71-year-old actor is set to marry his German artist girlfriend Sibylle Szaggars, who is 19 years his junior.
Redford - who has been wed once before - told German magazine Bunte: "We are engaged and very happy with that. Sibylle is my fiancee and that says everything, doesn't it?"
Redford and Szaggars have been dating since 1996, and the couple's happy news has been welcomed by Redford's three children from his first marriage - Jamie, 46, Shauna, 48, and Amy, 38.
Redford is notoriously guarded about his personal life, and managed to keep the break-up of his first marriage to Lola Van Wagenen secret for almost 10 years.
Redford and Szaggars live on an eco-friendly ranch in Utah. The 'Indecent Proposal' actor also has a ski resort which he named 'The Sundance Kid' after his character in his most famous film 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'.
Redford's last role was in thriller 'Lions for Lambs', which also featured Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep.
