Danny Bonaduce is wedding his girlfriend of about two years, Amy Railsback, she confirms to Usmagazine.com. “He proposed a whole bunch of times over the last couple of years, but you know, it’s never quite official until you have a ring on your finger,” Railsback, 26 — a former teacher who now works as Bonaduce’s manager — tells Us. “I’m a little giddy about it.”
Bonaduce, 49, popped the question on March 12 with a sterling silver skull and crossbones ring that consists of diamonds and “rubies in the eyeball,” she says.
“He wears that pirate jewelry. He normally wears, like, $12 rings, but this is the real thing,” she continues. ” He promises to get me a grown up engagement ring and wedding when we get married. This one is a Danny version for now.”
The couple — who met at a Starbucks in Hollywood — haven’t set a date yet. “I have no idea. I’d want a smaller ceremony and I’d invite my closest family friends, and of course his family and siblings. Maybe 12 people, tops,” she says.
Railsback and Bonaduce recently moved to Philadelphia, where he broadcasts his radio show on 94WYSP, but would return to California to say “I Do,” she says.
As for children?
“He’s got two kids [Isabella and Dante with second wife Gretchen Hillmer]. They’re awesome, and Danny is kind of a handful on his own — so I can’t really think that far,” she says. “We’ll see. I’m not sure how he feels about having kids at 50.”
Bonaduce rose to fame playing Danny Patridge on The Patridge Family in the 1970s. He also starred in a VH1 reality show that showed him struggling with alcoholism called Breaking Bonaduce.
It’s the third marriage for Bonaduce and first for Railsback.
