THIRD TIMES THE CHARM FOR ROBIN WILLIAMS

Funnyman Robin Williams tied the knot for the third time in Northern California over the weekend—just as The ENQUIRER said he would!

Rubber-faced Robin, 60, wed graphic designer gal pal Susan Schneider, 47, at posh Meadowood Resort in St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA.

Among the guests were, reportedly, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Robin’s longtime friend Billy Crystal.

Last October, the ENQUIRER reported exclusively that Williams and Schneider would wed this year in the Napa-Sonoma Valley, not far from his Northern California home.

In November 2009, The ENQUIRER was also the first to report that Robin had found love again – with the woman he credits with saving his life.

The twice-married Oscar winner had fallen for Schneider, who nursed him back to health after open-heart surgery.

She was by his side at Ohio’s Cleveland Clinic in mid-March 2009, after doctors replaced his aortic valve, repaired his mitral valve and corrected an irregular heartbeat.

“Robin truly believes it’s no coincidence that Susan came into his life right before his heart operation,” confided a source.

“He told a pal, ‘She saved me – she helped me heal.’ ”

And Susan helped Robin in other ways, as well.

They met the year after Robin split with second wife Marsha after 19 years of marriage in 2008.

“Robin was down after the breakup, and Susan picked him right back up again.”

Veteran groom Robin got hitched to Valerie Velardi in 1978 and they had one child, Zachary. The marriage lasted 10 years. Next he wed Marsha Garces, his son’s nanny, in April 1989. At the time, she was several months pregnant with his child.

Robin’s kids – Zach, 28, Zelda, 22, and Cody, 19,  are crazy about Susan, too, say insiders.

Explained the close source: “They’re happy that she makes him happy.”
