“Dennis and Laura are on their honeymoon right now and his children are with them,” the insider alleged to the outlet.
The Montana getaway came a little over a month after the actor, 66, and the doctoral student, 27, tied the knot in Santa Babara, Calif. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, only their pastor was in attendance.
“We’re both Christians, and right from the start God has always had a hand in the relationship,” Quaid explained. “I think that’s where the real strength comes from.”
Quaid and Savoie originally planned a wedding in April in Hawaii along with a second reception for family and friends in Nashville. However, the two postponed the festivities amid the ongoing pandemic.
“With the quarantine, it hasn’t been easy,” Savoie told the outlet. “And when you just pray together and say that this is where I’m having a hard time, help us be the people we’re supposed to be toward each other. It changes everything.
“It brings you back to being loving and kind toward each other and working through those things that inevitably come up,” she continued. “And it’s just the greatest source of strength in our relationship to have, to share that.”
Quaid and Savoie ultimately exchanged traditional vows with only their pastor as a witness.
“Everyone asks if you feel different [after being pronounced husband and wife] and I think it was just with everything that happened to have it actually done, it was kind of feeling of freedom, I think,” said Quaid. “It was really a freedom that we can really start our lives together.
“Just looking into her eyes, she was the most stunning bride,” he added.
According to the outlet, the couple began dating in May 2019 after being introduced at a business event.
Savoie, originally from St. Louis, attended Pepperdine University, where she was class valedictorian, the outlet reported. She went on to get a master’s degree in accountancy at the University of Notre Dame.
“It was love at first sight,” said Quaid. “I just love who she is as a person. Her character, her intelligence, of course, her beauty. And her point of view of the world.”
In late 2019, Quaid opened up to The Guardian about facing criticism for dating a younger woman.
“That was really a laugh,” he said at the time. “I thought it was wonderful actually.”
Quaid said that he and Savoie aren’t taking the commentary personally.
“No, it really doesn’t bother us,” he insisted. “Everyone comes from the perspective of their own life and so I can’t comment on the way they feel; I can’t even get angry.”
Quaid also shared it was never his intention to find someone Savoie’s age.
“I didn’t go out looking for an age gap or someone really younger than me,” he explained. “I met her at a business event and then the relationship developed.
“You have no control over who you fall in love with,” he continued. “I don’t fall in love easily. But I can’t let what a few people think control all that. I’ve been married three times and this is the final one, I know it is. I feel like I have a real partner in life.”
Quaid previously dated longtime girlfriend Santa Auzina, whom he was last photographed with in December 2018, People magazine reported. The couple, who were together for a little over two years, began dating after Quaid split from his wife of 12 years, Kimberly Buffington, in 2016. The former pair finalized their divorced in April 2018.
Quaid was previously married to actress Meg Ryan. The 10-year marriage ended in 2001.
And before that, Quaid was married to actress P.J. Soles from 1978 until 1983.
