Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters: A modern day Fermina Daza and Florentino Ariza?

Peters met Pamela thirty years ago and had proposed marriage, which the former Playboy playmate turned down

It took thirty years for Baywatch icon Pamela Anderson and movie mogul Jon Peters to say "I Do" after they went on their first date. Pamela Anderson, 52, married Jon Peters in a secret wedding ceremony in Malibu, California. This is Pamela's fifth marriage.

According to The Holiday Reporter, which broke the news, Pamela and Jon went on their first date 30 years ago. The couple met again in 2019, and love bloomed. However, the couple had kept their relationship under wraps for several months prior to their marriage. Among those present included the couple's kids from their previous marriages.

Jon, 74, admitted that Pamela was the only woman who kept him interested for almost four decades. "There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but -- for 35 years -- I've only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild -- in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated," said 'A Star Is Born' producer.

"Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn't love her so much," he added.

Jon met Pamela, former Playboy playmate, for the first time at Hugh Hefner's mansion in the mid-'80s. Recalling the moment, he said: "I walked in and saw this little angel sitting at the bar. It was Pammy. She was like 19. I knew she would be a big star. We ended up living together. Of course, Hefner loved her and saw her beauty."

"Pamela was a girl who with no makeup was gorgeous. She was very smart and very talented. I tried to talk her out of doing Playboy. I said, 'Don't do Playboy. Focus on a serious career.' She said, 'You're nuts.' "She wanted to do Playboy, and she went on to do 13 covers," he added.

Soon after Jon proposed marriage to Pamela which she turned down due to their age difference. "I remember telling her, 'In 30 years, our age difference won't mean so much," Jon added.
