Sorry ladies, Joseph Morgan is officially off the market! On May 14, the ‘Originals’ star revealed that he and ‘Vampire Diaries’ star Persia White are now engaged! Congrats, you two!
Joseph Morgan may play an evil killer (who we are in love with) on The Originals, but in real life, he’s pretty romantic! The actor, 32, announced that his girlfriend Persia White — who you may recognize as Bonnie’s mother Abby on The Vampire Diaries, are planning a wedding!
Joseph Morgan Engaged To Persia White
“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. We wish you all the same,” Joseph told Wetpaint.com in a statement.
Joseph met Persia, 41, in 2011 on the set of The Vampire Diaries and he was quoted in 2013 saying he was “very happy” with their relationship!
“I’m lucky enough, she came with me to New York to enjoy a little bit of the city. I get the weekend off so we get to experience a little of that. But that’s all I’m going to put out there, I’m going to keep the rest for myself,” he said at the time to Huff Post Live.
On May 15, Joseph confirmed the news again to E! at the CW Upfronts, but wouldn’t get into “specific detail” on how he popped the question.
“I tried to be romantic. It was a nerve-wracking moment but it was special,” he shared.
Our imaginations can fill in the rest. While we’re bummed he’s taken, we’re so happy for these two! Congrats!
