Now here’s a fang-tastic love story.

‘Eddie Munster’ has fallen for one of his longtime fans, Philly.com reports.

Butch Patrick, who starred on the TV series ‘The Munsters,’ is reportedly engaged to Donna McCall, 55, a retired pharmacist and former NFL cheerleader.

McCall, who wrote letters to Patrick as a young fan of the monster sixties hit, tells the National Enquirer that Eddie Munster was her first crush.

Forty years later, the couple met in person at a vampire convention near Pittsburgh in May and hit it off.

The former child star, now 57, is still involved in acting and splits his time between Los Angeles and Florida, but recently moved to West Chester, Pa., to be near his new love.

Patrick starred on ‘The Munsters’ from 1964-1966; McCall was a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader from 1976 to 1979.

In other celebrity wedding news, former ‘Dawson’s Creek’ star James Van Der Beek married his pregnant girlfriend.
