Wedding Bells for Lisa Ray!

Lisa Ray, who fought with her disease, Cancer, bravely, is now dating with Paris-based fashion photographer Paolo Zambaldi. The 39-year-old actress broke with her ex, Canadian businessman W Brett Wilson (53) last year.

Lisa, who stays in Toronto, often travels to New York to spend time with her new beau. A source says,

“It has been like a rebirth for Lisa. After being diagnosed with cancer, her view towards life has changed a lot. She had a deep emotional connect with ex-boyfriend Brett as they are both cancer survivors. With Paolo, it is sheer romance. She was bowled over by him. He loves travelling, is spontaneous and they share the same view towards life and work. Lisa has confessed to friends that Paolo is the man she would want to spend her life with.

“Paolo loves the adrenaline rush from the sport and inspired Lisa to buy a mountain bike for their jaunts together. The fashion photographer has also forayed into directing short films and he cast Lisa in Another Day. Like most lovers, they can’t do anything without each other. Insiders insist they will soon exchange rings, mostly by the end of the year, in a private and understated ceremony.”

Paolo is an A-list fashion photographer and has shot Hollywood biggies like Naomi Campbell, Sofia Loren, Ricky Martin, Kevin Spacey, Monica Bellucci, Mickey Rourke, Steve Vai and Taylor Lautner among others.
