Nicollette Sheridan and Michael Bolton have been engaged for 10 months now, but don't expect to hear wedding bells any time soon.
"I don't have time for wedding plans anymore, but we are extremely happy," Sheridan, 43, told reporters Sunday at the New York City premiere of her film Code Name: The Cleaner.
Indeed, Bolton, 53, is still music to his fiancée's ears: At a Dec. 13 junket for the film, the Desperate Housewives
star was asked what records she's been listening to lately. "Michael Bolton," she said, laughing. "Bolton Swings Sinatra.
Michael's Christmas CD."
Has he written any songs for her recently? "No," she said, then added with a smile, "but he's just about to start on his new album, so we'll see."
The couple announced their engagement
in March after a whirlwind courtship – although they'd dated for several years in the early '90s.
Sheridan ended her engagement
to actor Nicklas Soderblom in October 2005.
