Heather Locklear is engaged to boyfriend Chris Heisser, a source confirms to ET. The news comes after the Melrose Place star was photographed last week with a diamond ring on her left hand.
Locklear and Heisser were high school sweethearts in the '70s. They rekindled their romance in 2017, and have dated on and off since.
"This engagement is symbolic of how far they have both come," a source tells ET. "Her family is supportive of their recent engagement. They see how in love they are."
"Heather and Chris want to have an intimate wedding," adds the source. "They are in no rush but when it does happen they want their families and those closest to them to share their special day."
Locklear has had a tumultuous few years. Court documents obtained by ET last October showed that Locklear had completed her court-ordered 30 days in rehab, and stated that she must remain on probation and continue to seek therapy through out-patient programs as part of her plea agreement.
The actress' close friend, Jillian Barberie, previously confirmed to ET that Locklear had checked herself into a treatment facility on Aug. 19, just a few days after she pleaded no contest to eight misdemeanor offenses of battery and resisting officers. The judge found her guilty and she was ordered to enroll in a residential treatment program as part of her sentence stemming from two incidents in 2018.
In February 2018, she was arrested after a domestic violence call was reported at her residence; she was charged with four counts of misdemeanor battery and one of obstructing an officer. Police alleged that Locklear became combative during the arrest and battered three deputies.
Later in 2018, Locklear faced three new misdemeanor charges: battery against a police officer, battery against an EMT and obstructing a police officer stemming from an incident that occurred at her home on June 24 that year, according to the Ventura County DA’s Office.
