The sultry blonde, who’s 57, has been dating beau Sam Levinson for four years now and the two plan to marry. That doesn’t sound very noteworthy unless you know that Sam is 26. And that it was Ellen who did the proposing. And that Sam is the son of the legendary Barry Levinson, who directed Ellen in the 1982 movie Diner. Which was filmed before Sam was even born. Wow!
A source tells the Enquirer:
“Ellen is madly in love with Sam and wants to spend the rest of her life with him. She proposed marriage while they were walking on the beach on late afternoon in August. Sam didn’t skip a beat before accepting. It will be an intimate ceremony in Manhattan. They’re both so happy that Ellen says she and Sam are even considering adopting a baby!”
You go, girl!
