I guess love really does keep people young, huh?

Just ask Hollywood veteran Dick Van Dyke!

Van Dyke is now 97-years-old and he says that wife, Arlene Silver, who is 51-years-old, has had a huge impact on his life.

Van Dyke and Silver have been married since 2012 and Van Dyke said that, in addition to good genes, that the key to staying young is “having a beautiful young wife half my age to take care of me — that works! My positive attitude, I get that from my wife.”

He also said that movement is one of the secrets to being active at his age: “I wrote a book called “Keep Moving”: I still go to the gym three days a week and work out. And I advise everybody to do that, because that’s what ages people — it’s just a stiffening up and not exercising their muscles and their lungs. Exercise is the answer.”

The couple loves to sing and dance together. Silver said, “I learned all the music he knows so I can keep him singing. Every show tune, every standard. I know all of them now, and I didn’t know any of them before.”

Van Dyke and Silver also like to host karaoke gatherings at their house to get the party started. These two really know how to have a good time!
