Kirstie Alley’s 17-Year-Old Son Is Engaged

Kirstie Alley’s 17-Year-Old Son Is Engaged

During a recent taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, actress Kirstie Alley revealed some exciting news – her 17-year-old son, William True, is engaged!

The 59-year-old diet pitchwoman/reality star tells Ellen that True and his girlfriend have been dating for about a year and that she is absolutely fine with their plans.

“I feel good because they’re really in love. True’s very… he’s got a level head. He’s a good guy,” says Kirstie. “He’s very monogamous and he’s very sweet with her.”

Admitting that marrying young doesn’t always work out, she adds that waiting to tie the knot doesn’t guarantee a successful marriage either:

You know, I was married when I was just 19 years old and that didn’t work. Then I was married when I was 30 years old and that’s when everyone said you should get married and that didn’t work. So, I don’t think I’m an expert on the subject.

Adds Kirstie, “I think if somebody’s in love and wants to be married then let them be in love and get married.”

The former Cheers star is also mom to 15-year-old Lillie Price.

    Really in love William and his girlfriend only dated for 1 year I hardly call that in love. Kirstie is wrong on many levels for a 17 year old to get married. He 17 way too young he barley knows his girlfriend, how would his pay for her ring her wedding dress, at 17. William has to plan everything. From the wedding date to the people he want at his wedding. This is too much stress for a 17 year old to handle.

    The girl is undoubtedly a $cientologist, and they do not discourage young marriages. remember, they think kids are born fully formed and developed, and should be treated as equals from birth. $ci kids/teens are often eerily composed, aloof and superior, tom cruise’s older son is a perfect example, actor Jason Dohring was the same, and he married extremely young. The $ci’s point to this as proof of maturity, which is obviously ridiculous, but the superficial appearance of maturity allows them to justify abandoning parental responsibility and allowing this young equal to do as they please.

    With both kids in the cult, it’s possible the marriage won’t be allowed to “fail”, at least not publicly, but is this healthy? Most in the $ci-dreaded (haha) mental health industry would probably say NOT.

    There’s something you don’t see too much of these days. And for a good reason. Married at 17 is absolutely nuts. I’m 17 and the thought of getting married now just… makes me shudder to say the least. They’re still kids! Hormones are all over the place, emotions are rollercoastering this way and that. I just think 17 is far too early to make such a huge life decision such as this one. That said, I wish William and his fiancée the best in their life together, however short it may or may not end up being.
