It was reported in June, the actor was seeing a PhD student from The University of Texas, and the relationship was confirmed when the private Instagram account of Laura was followed. There were pictures of the couple together with her writing, sweet captions of the duo being in love. Though the images and the caption are still not public, it was reported the couple was in love.
The love between the two blossomed in a matter of months, and they were seen together for the first time, holding hands and in love. But after only 4-5 months of dating, the lovebirds grew close to each other, to the point where Dennis decided it was the right time for the two to get engaged.

The couple was together for less than half a year when the actor decided he needed to put a ring on it. Dennis and Laura were in Turtle Bay, Oahu, enjoying some time off. He filmed the new movie Midway in Hawaii, and it was the right place for the couple to get engaged.
Dennis and Laura were on vacation, and the actor talked about how they got engaged to Extra TV. He said, “It happened on the very northernmost point of Oahu, at Turtle Bay. It was kind of spontaneous. It was very much a surprise,” the actor set the scene. “I had the ring in my pocket… It has been kind of a month-and-a-half plan… I wanted it to be private. She was actually taking a selfie of us, and I put the ring in front and said, ‘Will you marry me?’ — and then she fell down.”

Dennis Quaid used a five-century old engagement ring, which the actor bought while on a trip to Italy. Giorgio Bulgari showed the ring, and it was perfect for his proposal.
Well, as with almost everything in the world, the couple was ridiculed for their choice to get engaged, considering the age gap. One of the first people to come after the couple was Dennis’ Parent Trap co-star Elaine Hendrix who drew some obvious comparisons between the movie’s plot and the real-life engagement of the two. In a tweet, she wrote, “Watch out for those twins.”

Elaine is referring to the twins who tried to prank their way into getting her character away from their dad so he can be with their mom. The actress played a 26-year-old in the movie, and her character was the fiancée of Dennis’ character. The thing which makes it funny and also real is the fact Dennis is the father of twins with his third wife, and this is almost like life imitating art.
Well, it was a tongue-in-cheek quip by Elaine, but then the floodgates opened, and people were all over the couple, making fun of them. Even Dennis’ ex Lea Thompson got involved in the roasting of the couple. Check out the tweets below;
She was -10 when I was engaged to him.

His first wife was three years older than he was.
His second wife (Meg Ryan) was ten years younger.
His third wife was twenty years younger.
His fourth wife will be forty years younger.
