"It's still easy to meet people and get involved with things you want to get involved in." Bains also noted that she graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and loves sailing.

For most people, Ralphie is one of those singular characters who only exists in one place... Peter Billingsley, the actor who played Ralphie, faded from the limelight after the film. The bespeckled, blue-eyed kid kept acting and is now a successful Hollywood producer who's done quite well for himself thanks to some powerful relationships and smart decisions (he seems to have a soft spot for Christmas movies, go figure).

Peter Billingsley is engaged to his girlfriend, Buffy Bains, his rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

The duo has been engaged for almost one and half year and still haven’t lead to the wedding.

There has been no news about them since they got engaged.

Gail is the niece of Stork Club owner Sherman Billingsley, and her cousin, Glenn Billingsley, was married to actress Barbara Billingsley (1915–2010), who used her married name as her acting name even after the divorce.

Gail was the one who initially took the children around to auditions.
