Former child star Gary Coleman has reunited with his estranged wife Shannon Price just four months after the actor was arrested for allegedly attacking her. The "Diff'rent Strokes" star, 42, was taken into custody in January after police were called to his Utah home following reports of a fight.
No criminal charges were filed at the time, but Coleman was cited for failing to appear in court for a hearing into a separate altercation involving his wife in April 2009. He pleaded guilty to one count of domestic violence criminal mischief and was fined $595.
But the estranged couple appears to have patched up its differences after a difficult few months for Coleman, who has been hospitalized twice for seizures. A source tells the National Enquirer, "Shannon has moved back in (and) Gary's like a new person. "Gary really thought he could die at any time and it (recent health crisis) made him realize how much he really loves Shannon. They've never been happier and all their friends are hoping their love will stick this time."
The couple is now focused on building a more secure future together and are reportedly setting up a dog-breeding business. The insider adds, "They haven't fought at all and (they) bought a dachshund puppy to celebrate their fresh start. Gary and Shannon already had one dachshund and want to breed them. They look at it as a money-making venture that they can enjoy together."
The couple wed in August, 2007.
