Linda Purl, who played Ashley Pfister on “Happy Days,” and her boyfriend Patrick Duffy, who played Bobby Ewing on “Dallas,” are showing off their yoga moves on social media.

Purl described the picture as the sixth day of her “quarantine circus.”

She has been posting a series of photos alongside Duffy during quarantine. She also has pictures out on sandy beaches and alongside her dog, Mia.

In November of 2020, Patrick Duffy shared with People magazine that he was dating Purl. He described it as an “incredibly happy relationship.”

The 72-year-old also said that he “never thought for a minute this would happen again.” He was married to Carlyn Rosser, a professional ballerina, from 1974 until she passed away in 2017. He is a father and also a grandfather to four grandkids.

Linda Purl, 65, has been married four different times. She was married to Desi Arnaz Jr. in 1979 and the two got divorced in 1980. She then married screenwriter William Broyles Jr. in 1988. Purl married British producer and screenwriter Alexander Cary, Master of Falkland, in 1993 and they divorced in 1995. She had one kid with him. She also married James Vinson Adams in 2006.

Linda Purl is Living Through ‘Happy Days’

While she is most known for her role in “Happy Days,” Purl is also a part of the widely popular comedy “The Office.” Here she appears as Helene, Pam Beesly’s mother.

Her character had a romantic relationship with Steve Carell’s character on the show. After leaving her role on the show “Matlock,” Purl also pursued a musical career. She created jazz music and even released a few albums, one of which was called “Out of This World — Live.”

Most recently she released an album called “Taking a Chance on Love” in 2020. A fitting title for the album considering her new relationship.

According to a Page Six published last year, Patrick Duffy lost his wife to cancer in 2017 after 34 years of marriage. He opened up on what it’s like to fall in love after losing someone.

“For me, it’s not a do-over, it’s a do-again because the first one was perfect and this one is also perfect. We get a do-again, but we’re not teenagers so we kind of enter it knowing what’s expected and what to give and to respect each other’s history and individualism. It’s worked out, I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Duffy said.
