Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett are vowing to make their commitment official.

In a new interview with Barbara Walters, Ryan said that, though Farrah is "fighting for her life, I've asked her to marry me, again, and she's agreed."

Farrah's health has been deteriorating as of late, as she continues to battle cancer.

"We will, as soon as she can, say yes," Ryan says of their nuptials. "Maybe we can just nod her head," he said, with a laugh.

These two have been a couple for almost 30 years -- together since 1980.

"I used to ask her to marry me all the time," Ryan revealed  to 20/20. "But ... it just got to be a joke, you know. We just joked about it."

"I promise you, we will," he reiterated. "Absolutely."

I hope they do it soon -- it will be wonderful for them to finally have something to celebrate.
