Lookback at Melissa Gilbert's Stunning Red Dress She Wore to Her Third Wedding Ceremony
Melissa Gilbert married for the third time, and this time to actor Timothy Busfield.
The actress, who became famous at age 10 playing Laura Ingalls in the series "The Little House on the Prairie", tied the knot with Busfield back in 2013. The ceremony was held at the San Ysidro Ranch, Santa Barbara. Lawrence Olivier and Vivian Leigh exchanged vows here, and John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy enjoyed their honeymoon.
Gilbert, who was 48 at the time, and Busfield, 55, met more than two decades ago but only started dating one year before they tied the knot. She surprised guests by wearing a long strapless red dress that complimented her beautiful red hair, while Busfield looked dapper in a dark blue suit and a white shirt without a tie.
This is the third time that both Gilbert and Busfield have decided marry. Gilbert was previously married to Bo Brinkman. They have a son, Dakota Paul.
Her second marriage was with Bruce Boxleitner, from 1995 to 2011 and they also had a son, Michael Garrett.
Busfield was married to the actress and director Radha Delamarter before parting ways in the mid-80s. The couple had a son, Willy.
In 1988, he exchanged vows with fashion designer Jennifer Merwin, with whom he had children Daisy and Samuel. They filed for divorce 19 years later.
According to Gilbert, her relationship with Busfield has helped her to regain her self-confidence.
Just two years after getting married, the actress got rid of all the anti-aging treatments she had been using, such as Botox and Restylane fillers.

She even removed the breast implants she had with the idea of being reconciled with her true self and to feel comfortable in her body.
Busfield gave her the courage to accept the passage of time along with the changes that it will bring to her appearance.
