Heather Locklear looks content as she cuddles up to fiancé Chris Heisser and flashes her massive engagement ring: ‘Enjoying my family!’

Heather Locklear looked happy as she enjoyed a lazy Sunday with her family.

The 59-year-old Melrose Place alum posted a snap to her Instagram showing her watching television while cuddled up to fiance Chris Heisser, also 59.

‘Enjoying my family! Including the photographer’ Locklear captioned the cozy snap, presumably referring to her daughter Ava Sambora, 23, being behind the lens.

It’s the first time she’s shared a photo of her husband-to-be since his birthday in September.

The actress could be seen wearing her impressive diamond ring on her left hand as she reclined against Heisser, with her dog Mister on her lap. 

In June, the exciting news broke that three years after rekindling her relationship with her high school sweetheart, she accepted his proposal. 

The pair dated in the late 1970’s at Newbury Park High School, went through multiple marriages and have had their share of ups and downs since getting back together in the fall of 2017. 

The couple were once a item before Locklear went on to marry rockers Tommy Lee from 1986-1993 and Richie Sambora from 1994-2007, with whom she has a daughter, Ava, 23.

In April 2020, she celebrated one year of sobriety and a friend told People that Locklear ‘is in a great place.’ 

‘She is doing great and looks great,’ her pal said. ‘What’s most important is today and the next day and the future and she’s in a great place.’

Locklear marked the occasion with a thoughtful post to Instagram, in which she shared a long quote from Maya Angelou, presumably in reference to some of the things she has learned over the past 12 months.

Reflecting: Locklear marked the sobriety anniversary by sharing a long quote from Maya Angelou

In February 2018 she was arrested for domestic violence and for battery against a police officer who attended the incident at her mansion in Thousand Oaks, California.

That June, she was arrested again for allegedly verbally and physically abusing an ambulance EMT who responded to her home following a call for help.

Then in November 2018, she was placed on a 5150 hold after her therapist determined that she was experiencing a mental breakdown. She entered rehab the following month.

In May 2019 she entered that same facility for substance abuse treatment. 

In August 2019, Locklear pleaded no contest to eight misdemeanor counts: five counts of battery on a peace officer, one count of battery on an emergency medical personnel, and two counts of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.

She was ordered to complete a 30-day residential rehab stay in a mental health facility with a 120-day jail sentence suspended.
