Meredith Baxter, 66-years-old, is engaged to her longtime girlfriend, Nancy Locke. The couple have been together for seven years.
TMZ reported that Baxter obtained a marriage license from a Beverly Hills courthouse last Friday. The wedding date is unknown.
Baxter was married three times to three different men before announcing she was a lesbian in 2009.
“I am a lesbian and it was a later-in-life recognition,” she revealed on the “Today” show upon coming out. “Some people would say, well, you’re living a lie and, you know, the truth is—not at all. This has only been for the past seven years. I got involved with someone I never expected to get involved with, and it was that kind of awakening. I never fought it because it was like, oh, I understand why I had the issues I had early in life. I had a great deal of difficulty connecting with men in relationships.”
Baxter told Oprah Winfrey in 2011 that she didn’t know how coming out would affect her work. However, she says her relationship with Lock is the “healthiest” she’s ever had.
