Dallas star Patrick Duffy is dating another 70s and 80s TV star three years after his wife’s death

The actor, 71, has revealed he has a serious relationship with Happy Days alum Linda Purl, 65, after meeting her during coronavirus quarantine

Duffy, who was married to ballet dancer Carlyn Rosser for 43 years before her death in 2017, admitted he never thought he would find love again and adjusted to living alone

« I never thought for a minute that this would happen again I never thought I would feel this way again My wife and I, in 48 years we were still together »

The actor explained that he reconnected with Purl during a group text chain with other friends during the pandemic.After a few weeks, the two stars were the only ones left on the thread as things took an expected turn

« I loaded my car, drove for 20 hours and found myself at her door just to see if it was real We haven’t been apart since »

Duffy also said that his late wife, whom he married in 1974 and was with him in his prime as a TV idiot, wanted him to find happiness

Last year, a source close to Duffy told Closer Weekly that the heartbroken actor had « tentatively » started dating and that his sons, Padraic and Conor, « were encouraging him to find the love »Duffy’s sons even tried to arrange a date for him, but they were unsuccessful

The source added that Duffy wanted to grow old « with someone who has the same interests » as him

Purl, who is best known for her role as Fonzie’s (Henry Winkler) divorced girlfriend Ashley Pfister in the last two seasons of longtime ABC sitcom Happy Days, as well as for her recurring roles in Matlock and The Office, has been married four times, most notably to Desi Arnaz Jr, the son of I Love Lucy stars Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, in the early 1980s

Unlike Duffy, whose marriage lasted four decades until his wife’s death, Purl’s four marriages all ended in divorce

Previously, she had told People that her marriage to Arnaz ended after just a year because they couldn’t find a way to live together

« We were still sort of stunned to be in love with each other, and just found that we couldn’t find the more practical side of life, » she said.  » If there was a mistake, that’s it – that we didn’t find out beforehand «
