Engagement News | Congrats to Joseph Morgan

Congrats, and mourning, are in order for our The Originals star Joseph Morgan! He is engaged!

E! News reported that Joseph asked his girlfriend Persia White, of TVD and Girlfriends, for her hand in marriage. The couple met on the set of TVD in 2011 where they were instantly hit with cupid’s arrow. Turns out The CW is the ultimate match maker!

Joseph did not reveal much about the engagement but he did say that he was super nervous. He told E! News, “I tried to be romantic. It was a nerve-racking moment, but it was special.” I don’t believe it! With that sexy accent and smooth swag, how could he possibly be nervous?

Nerve-racking or not, Persia said yes and the couple is engaged. As I mentioned earlier, we here at CW44 are in a bittersweet state of mourning. While we are happy for the gorgeous couple, we feel empty knowing that Joseph will soon have a ring on that finger. It is the end of an era, kids.

Congrats anyway!
