Actor Ray Liotta, best known for his role as Henry Hill in Goodfellas, died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic where he was filming upcoming project Dangerous Waters, Deadline reports. He was 67 and is survived by fiancée Jacy Nittolo and daughter Karsen.

Heartbreakingly, the last photo of the couple together was taken mere days before the actor’s death.

Who is Ray Liotta’s fiancée Jacy Nittolo?

Ray Liotta’s fiancée, Jacy Nittolo, although not a celebrity herself, was thrust into the spotlight after her relationship with the actor, almost 20 years her senior, became public.

Nittolo was born on 26 September 1974 and is 47, going on 48. According to her Instagram, Nittolo is a hairstylist and owns her own hair salon. Despite the age gap, Liotta called her the “love of his life”.

Before she met the Goodfellas actor, she was previously married to Joseph ‘Joey’ Nittolo, with whom she shares sons Joey, Dax and Chazz, and daughter Jade. Her children are all teenagers or young adults.

Jacy Nittolo often posts about her children and relationship with Liotta on her Instagram under the handle @jacynittolo, where she has 2,700 followers.

Nittolo and Liotta were first spotted out together in late 2019, with Nittolo later confirming their relationship on Instagram in February the following year.

During an appearance on Live With Kelly And Ryan on Friday 17 September 2021, the actor revealed the two met through their children. However, at first Nittolo is said not to have been interested in Liotta because of his acting background.

While sharing the initial conversation his daughter had with now fiancé Liotta, the actor joked: “(Jacy) said ‘stop right there; I want nothing to do with an actor whatsoever.'”

The couple announced they were engaged on Boxing Day (26 December) 2020 by sharing a photo together in front of their Christmas tree as Nittolo flashed her engagement ring.
