Troubled ex-child star Gary Coleman is hoping love will be sweeter the second time around after recently reuniting with his estranged wife, Shannon Price.
The Diff’rent Strokes star, 42, was arrested in January after police were called to the couple’s Utah home following reports of a fight.No criminal charges were filed at the time, but Coleman was cited for failing to appear in court for a hearing into a separate altercation involving his wife in April 2009. He pleaded guilty to one count of domestic violence criminal mischief and was fined.
Gary and Shannon decided to patch up their differences after Gary was hospitalized twice for seizures earlier this year.
A source tells The National Enquirer: “Shannon has moved back in (and) Gary’s like a new person. Gary really thought he could die at any time and it (recent health crisis) made him realise how much he really loves Shannon. They’ve never been happier and all their friends are hoping their love will stick this time.”
The couple — who wed in August 2007 — are reportedly setting up a dog-breeding business.
