Farrell and her fiance have kept their relationship largely private. The Becker star retired in 2003 to focus on her family. She has one son from a previous marriage to actor Brian Baker.
Nimoy, 61, who has two children, is the only son of beloved icon Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock in the wildly popular franchise.
