Acting icon Dick Van Dyke was spotted with his much younger wife, Arlene, during a rare outing at the Happiest Place on Earth.
The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang star enjoyed a Disney date with his longtime love on Monday, where a tour guide steered his wheelchair at the famed amusement park.
Arlene got in the spirit to kick off her Halloween season, donning a Haunted Mansion shirt paired with matching trousers and pink-tinted shades in the new photos of the low-key couple obtained by Daily Mail. Van Dyke was sporting a blue long-sleeve shirt, joggers, and a baseball cap.
The Mary Poppins sensation appeared frail but seemed to be having a good time months after he was left injured from a car crash in Malibu.
“The airbags did not deploy, so I just had a face plant right in the steering wheel,” he said after the incident left him with a bloodied nose and mouth and a reported concussion. Van Dyke admitted being “sore,” assuring fans he was “fine.”
Van Dyke also credited his wife, 52, for being by his side throughout the ordeal, confessing, “Without her, I’d probably be dead.” They have been married since 2012.
As we previously reported, sources exclusively explain that Arlene took away his car keys after the accident. “Dick’s gotten to the point where he needs to be taken off the road — for his own safety and the safety of others,” said an insider. “Arlene is terrified if she doesn’t take the keys away now, it may be too late!”
“He’s aware of his age, but he’s determined to maintain his independence,” added the tipster.
The accident in Malibu happened 10 years after the screen legend was nearly burned alive on a California freeway. Fortunately, he survived after a hero bystander pulled him from the vehicle before it burst into flames.
A sensational new report released in August claimed that Van Dyke has been blowing through his $50 million fortune but doing so on the people he loves. “He’s got more than enough money and he’d rather share it while he’s alive,” the insider added.
RadarOnline.com exclusively learned earlier this year that Van Dyke wasn’t heeding warnings to slow down amid his new acting gig on Days of Our Lives, firing back that “everyone needs to leave him to enjoy the time he has left however he wants,” according to one source.
Van Dyke cameoed in four episodes last month, and one of which featured his wife.
