"The Munsters" actor Butch Patrick is set to marry a fan he met at a Dracula convention in May. The former child star, who played the son of the monster family in the 1960s TV show, originally began corresponding with Donna McCall when "The Munsters" became a big hit in the U.S. and she would send fan mail to him.

The pair lost touch for decades but McCall reconnected with Patrick a few years ago and they agreed to meet for the first time at DraculaCon II in Pennsylvania earlier this year. They embarked on a whirlwind romance and McCall, a former cheerleader for American football team the Philadelphia Eagles, recently accepted Patrick's marriage proposal.

McCall, 55, tells the National Enquirer, "My first crush was Butch Patrick. I met him for the first time, but I feel like I've known him forever." She adds, "It's a great love story. We're very happy together."

Patrick, 57, has since set up home with McCall in West Chester, Pennsylvania after packing up his homes in Florida and Los Angeles.

"...anyone who knows Butch Patrick knows he uses people. It's his M.O. Just found that out myself. BIG mistake.

"He even bragged to me once that he's ruined the finances of everyone that tried to help him. He thought that was funny... Helen and everyone before her were used as toilet paper by Butch. He's not a nice guy. He has perfected the art of lying. He's a perfect example of child star tragedies."

He and his reps/agent conned Helen Darras, Donna McCall and others. McCall caught on early to the games played and didn't lose money to him that others had.

PopCultExaminer: Butch Patrick engagement is a hoax & publicity stunt. FACT: Desperate for PR Donna McCall was the 2nd girl Butch proposed to, as the first girl was on July 1st. Why? He had no place to live, no money. He owns no "homes in FL or CA" as reorted by media. Devoid of conscience that his first proposal was declined he, with the gullible Donna, happily moved into the former Mr. McCall's home to continue the con game that has been Butch's lifelong lifestyle & M.O.

he was planning a wedding in 2006 too, to the married woman who wrote his book The Howard Stern Show for February 15, 2006 "Butch announced that hes getting married this year and that his soon-to-be wife is writing a book about him."

Sam Dracula is correct. There was no marriage or proposal. Story was given to the tabloids by Butch's reps knowing it wasn't true.

May God Bless you both on that special day. It was truly meant to be, because after loosing touch you were still able to reconnect. Years have gone by and still the love is there. Remember one thing and that's let no man or woman an divide what God has joined together. Best wishes to you both.

If they have children, however unlikely that may be, I wonder if he'll give them the same werewolf doll he had from the series.
