Whoa, Klaus hooked up with Bonnie’s mom. Yes, it’s true: Joseph Morgan is engaged to marry his former Vampire Diaries costar Persia White.
Former Vampire Diaries costars and real-life lovebirds Joseph Morgan and Persia White are engaged to be married.
Morgan confirmed the engagement to E! News while at The CW’s Upfront event in New York City last Thursday. The British actor starred briefly with White while the pair both worked on the hit vampire show. They met back in 2011 and hit it off right away. As for how the proposal went down, Morgan prefers to keep the mystery to himself, although he did share some of the highlights.
“I’m not going to go into specific detail,” the hunky actor teased. “But I tried to be romantic. It was a nerve-wracking moment but it was special.”
White played Abby Bennett on Diaries, the mom of series regular Bonnie Bennett. Morgan portrays the famous original vampire Klaus Mikaelson, the hybrid vampire who ventured over to New Orleans to star on his own spin-off series The Originals.
Besides being an actress, the former Girlfriends star is also a passionate animal rights activist and has devoted her time to help end animal cruelty since she was 12. She was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and has also lived in the Bahamas.
Besides revealing their big wedding plans at Upfront last week, Morgan and White spoke about their engagement to Wetpaint on Wednesday.
“We really appreciate those of you who have supported our wild, creative, passionate and unlikely relationship. We have found a rare and precious thing, true love,” the happy couple said in a statement. “We wish you all the same.”
