Harrison Ford is engaged to long-term love Calista Flockhart. The 64-year-old
actor popped the question to Calista, 42, on April Fool's Day and the thrilled
former Ally McBeal actress accepted. Harrison enlisted the help of
Calista's six-year-old adopted son Liam for the proposal.A friend of the couple
told Grazia magazine: "He coached Liam to run up to Calista and give her a
rehearsed message, 'Mr Ford is going to be my daddy.' Calista just laughed but
it was no joke. Harrison then told her he wanted to marry her. She and Liam are
absolutely thrilled about the proposal. "Harrison knows after five years that
Calista is the last love of his life. He's been telling everyone he felt it was
the right time."

The newly betrothed couple has already started planning
their big day. It is believed that they want the nuptials to be intimate and
low-key, and plan to tie the knot shortly after Harrison finishes shooting the
fourth Indiana Jones film in the autumn. Harrison and Calista first met at the
2002 Golden Globe Awards, after the actress accidentally spilled red wine all
over the screen legend. They started dating soon after.

This will be the
Star Wars actor's third marriage. He wed college sweetheart Mary
Marquardt in 1964 but they divorced in 1979. They have two sons, Ben, 39, and
Willard, 37, together. He tied the knot with 'E.T.' screenwriter Melissa
Mathison in March 1983 and they had two children, Georgia, 16, Malcolm, 20. They
legally separated in January 2004 in what is one the most expensive divorces in
Hollywood history. Ford became one of the world's highest-paid actors during
their union - making $20 million a film - and the final settlement is estimated
at $85 million. Mathison also received a percentage of Harrison's future
earnings from films he made while they were married. The divorce was recently
placed at number four in Forbes.com's 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Divorces list.
