Uma Thurman gets engaged to Arpad Busson
Uma Thurman has got engaged to boyfriend of a year, Arpad Busson, her spokesperson confirmed earlier today.
A source told the New York Daily News that Arpad proposed this week with an engagement ring so big “she can’t fit it through the sleeve of her coat.
“It’s a done deal. They’re already planning the wedding.”
Uma was previously married to Ethan Hawke but after five years of marriage and having two children together, the pair separated in 2003. Swiss financier Arpad also has two children from his previous relationship with supermodel Elle Macpherson - and it was their similar circumstances that drew them together: “Uma was dealing with visitation issues with her two kids with Ethan. Arki was going through the same thing with Elle. They bonded.”
The source added that the actress’ friends thoroughly approve of the proposal which was a “really old-fashioned romantic gesture”: “Uma is hoping this time, it’s really love. Everyone wants the best for her. And Arki is a really sweet guy.”
