After nearly eight months together, Mary-Kate Olsen and her much-older
boyfriend manfriend Olivier Sarkozy are still going strong.
The 26-year-old former child star turned fashion designer was spotted in Paris with her 42-year-old beau, who is the half brother of the former president of France and a managing director of the Carlyle Group's global financial services division.
The couple, who began dating in May 2012, were photographed walking hand-in-hand through the streets of the romantic city, and have a history of not being shy with the PDA. Olsen was bundled up in a long black coat, while Sarkozy showed off his new cropped hair cut -- and we have to say his new look makes him look slightly younger, which makes this odd pairing look slightly less creepy.
The 16-year age difference, combined with the fact that they remind us more of a father-daughter duo than lovers, has many slightly creeped out -- something of which Olsen is aware.
"Everyone has an opinion," she told the Wall Street Journal magazine of her romantic life. "I find it's better to focus on what's in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other."
The Daily Mail reports, the two stopped to browse at a jewelry store on Sunday, and Olsen was spotted wearing a ring on her left-hand ring finger while in France's Roissy Airport, which in turn has sparked rumors the two may possibly be engaged.
A rep for Olsen denied reports the former "Full House" star is engaged, telling The Huffington Post there is "no truth" to the reports.
The two may not be planning their nuptials at the moment, but given that Olsen purchased a $6.25 million townhouse for the two of them in Manhattan's East Village, marriage may not be that far off.
