Almost Married Late Singer Mindy McCready

During 1997, Cain started dating singer Mindy McCready. The couple became so much engrossed in each other that they progressed quickly and became engaged. However, instead of their relationship reaching to a swift conclusion, they broke up the following year. Tragically, his former girlfriend took her own life in 2013; she shot herself.

Dean was saddened by the news but not surprised. Speaking after her suicide, he revealed details as to why he broke their engagement. She was a poisonous person and not someone he wanted to spend his life together, he said. He added that she sucked the joy out of his life in such a way that he had to leave his own home for a hotel to escape her.

His late girlfriend left behind two sons, and the first thing Dean did was to convey his condolences to them on their loss.

Rumors between them started to spread with headlines stating ‘Dean And Rebecca spent the night together!’. Dean denied those rumors stating that he was only a good friend and providing her with a shoulder to cry on during her distress.

Not just that, he also revealed that he was looking for someone to get married to. However, he stressed that he had not met the perfect wife material; someone with whom he could start a family and raise his son. 

It's an unsurprising move considering how much he loves his son - so she must also be a perfect match for his son as well. There can't be an article about Dean Cain without a Superman reference. 'Dean, Clark Kent,  is waiting for his Lois Lane.'
