Patrick Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi has found love again.

Niemi, 56,  is dating jeweler Albert DePrisco, her rep confirmed to People magazine. The pair met through a mutual friend at a birthday party for Niemi. Niemi’s rep said the relationship is “new and they’re taking it slow.”

Niemi was by her husband’s side when he died in September 2009 after battling pancreatic cancer. In October 2011, she unveiled his wax sculpture at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood. The couple was married for 34 years.

In 2010, Niemi told People, “I know I’m stronger now. The fact that I’ve had some good days definitely gives me hope that I can have more.”
