Check out that sparkler! ‘The Originals’ star Claire Holt is going to be a bride! Her longtime boyfriend Matt Kaplan popped the big question and she couldn’t wait to share the news with her 1.4 million Instagram followers!
Australian actress Claire Holt, 27, took to social media on July 13 to share some very exciting news, she’s engaged! Her American, producer boyfriend Matt Kaplan did a GREAT job in the ring department! Clare showed off their happiness, love AND, of course, her new bling — see the pic!
Clare captioned the pic above “YES!” with a diamond ring emoji! So cute! Clare placed her hand lovingly on Matt’s chest, obviously to show off her new ring — it’s so nice! Early last year, Claire made the decision to quit her gig on The Originals. “I made a life choice, not a career choice,” she told US at the time, explaining she wanted to spend time with family and loved ones, rather than on The Originals set in Atlanta and New Orleans. It looks like that sacrifice paid off!
In another interview earlier last year, Claire bragged about how amazing and helpful her man is. Whenever she needs some help in the American accent department for acting roles, he’s there to help! “My boyfriend – Matt Kaplan – is American so any time I’m unsure of how to say something, I say, “Hey how do you say this?” and he yells it out,” she told People. “I think it’s always going to sound funny to him and not quite right but hopefully the public who watch it won’t be able to catch on!’
Sadly, the couple split in April 2017.
