It seems to be an odd couple, but actress Cheryl Hines and attorney Robert Kennedy Jr. are expected to tie the knot this summer. Kennedy of course is the son of Robert Kennedy and the nephew of John F. Kennedy and this will be his third marriage. He is 60 years old.
Hines is known for playing Larry David’s wife on HBO’s hit comedy “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Anyone who watched that she probably really hopes that Hines has found love in real life, because the type of frustration and mental abuse that David forced upon her with his antisocial behavior in the hilarious but awkward television marriage was quite extensive.
This will be Hines’ second marriage. According to reports in the media, they have been engaged since April and are planning a summer wedding.
Initial reports state that the wedding will take place during the annual Kennedy reunion. This event is held every summer at the family estate in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
Kennedy is a radio host and currently co-hosts the nationally syndicated American radio program Ring of Fire. He is also an environmental activist and an attorney that specializes in environmental law.
Hines is best known for Curb Your Enthusiasm, which she participated in from the start. Other than that show, she has done a lot of other television and some movie work as well. She is also known to be a great humanitarian, especially promoting charities related to cerebral palsy.
Hines and Kennedy have been dating since 2011, so the wedding announcement is not coming as a surprise to anyone.
There have been no real announcements made on the exact date and location of the wedding, but it is expected to be a family affair. Kennedy is 12 years older than Hines.
