The 32-year-old The Originals actor and Persia, 41, met on the set of The Vampire Diaries back during the show’s third season.
“We really appreciate those of you who have supported our wild, creative, passionate and unlikely relationship,” the couple told Wetpaint about their engagement. “We have found a rare and precious thing; true love. We wish you all the same.”
The Originals had its season one finale this past week and it led The CW to better ratings than Fox, which is a big feat for the network.
Congratulations to the happy couple on the great news!
