Kelsey Grammer, 55, spoke to People about his engagement to girlfriend Kayte Walsh, 29, saying, “Kayte and I are marrying because we are engaged, and we are engaged because we are in love and see no reason to postpone our happiness any longer.” Though he did not say when the two will marry, he added, “We are planning something we wish to be a private affair among several of our friends. Anything else is conjecture and false. Kayte and I are the only reliable source for this story. End of story.”

Over the summer it was announced that Walsh, a British flight attendant, was pregnant with Grammer’s child, but in October she released a statement saying she suffered a miscarriage some six weeks earlier.

Grammer is in the midst of what is reportedly a very costly divorce from third wife Camille Grammer, who stars on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The couple have been married for 13 years and have two children together, daughter Mason, 8, and son Jude, 6. Kelsey also has two older daughters, Spencer, 27, and Greer, 18, from previous relationships.
