GOLDIE HAWN and KURT RUSSELL have quit being Hollywood's most happily unmarried couple - they've decided to wed.
The golden pair, who have been together for nearly two decades, looked set for a break-up after fierce arguments this summer (00) - but are acting like love-birds again.
Reveals a family friend, "Kurt writes her love letters and pastes them all over the house. He buys her tons of flowers and they wrestle like little kids, tickling and giggling together." According to America's THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER, the ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK star pulled out an antique Indian ring - and a delighted Goldie cried, "OK, I give up. Yes, I will marry you, old man."
And the PRIVATE BENJAMIN actress, who has already been married twice, has another reason for planning her nuptials - she wants to set an example to daughter KATE HUDSON, 21, who moved in with her BLACK CROWES rocker fiance. The newly-engaged star hopes to demonstrate that "marriage is the right way to go." Her plan seems to be working - thrilled Kate told her mum, "If you two walk down the aisle, maybe it won't be long before CHRIS and I follow." (KW/NE/NFA)
