Liam Neeson sons 'encouraging proposal'

Liam Neeson's sons are reportedly keen for him to marry.

The actor has teenagers Michael and Daniel with his late wife Natasha Richardson, who passed away following a skiing accident in 2009.

He began dating publicist Katy Schell last year and his sons have reportedly bonded with her well.

"Liam has been on an insane schedule and his family want him at home," a source told National Enquirer. "He's been making and promoting three films a year and they're afraid he'll burn out. He's really in love with Katy and they can see she'll be the key."

Michael has apparently taken it upon himself to convince his father that the time is right to make a change in his life.

The young boy has been trying to subtly let his father know how much he likes Katy.

"Michael... said she'd make a great step-mom," the insider explained. "It's so cute, because he'll drop hints about good places for weddings - and how he could get his friend's band to play for free!"

Liam had a hectic schedule in 2012, promoting his movies The Grey, Battleship, Taken 2 and The Dark Knight Rises. He is currently shooting several releases, but is expected to enjoy a more relaxed 2013.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
