The Originals' Joseph Morgan: Engaged to Persia White!

Joseph Morgan is engaged to his girlfriend Persia White, his rep confirms to!

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!

    I’ve noticed that British guys seem to be more open to interracial dating than American guys.

  • GradBoy

    Yes, that is true. Being British and Canadian, and now living in the States I notice these things. I wasn’t being mean toward her, just noticing how overly effusive she seems in the pic.

    Klaus has been dating Bonnie’s mom this whole time!?!?!?! Mind blown.

  • allison

    I was wondering where I had seen the girl from. She use to star in Girlfriends. Good luck to both of them.

    @GradBoy: Um, yeah and so does he, what’s your point? And he’s not a “white boy”. He’s a man who happens to be white and she loves HIM as in the individual person he is.
    What a radical thing, huh? ::eye roll::

  • Pretty Ka

    @ Amy…. I noticed that almost every famous black British guy girlfriend or wife is white/ mixed and even a lot of famous black British women husband boyfriends are white… Just a observation .

  • Mia

    She isn’t black , she half white and half black.. Wrong to just call her black, it’s like erasing half her identity and genes .

  • Tearra

    Hey Lynn from Girlfriends! I miss that show.

  • stella geo

    god, make her 41!

  • sayde

    And grandboys comment is why America is the no 1 racist country in the world. It will never stop. She is a beautiful woman and I believe that’s all joseph saw. Not the color or age. And Btw she is half black, half white.

  • Mrs. Gaston

    how nice, so happy for them! congrats! they look so cute together. loved her on Girlfriends. something told me not read the comments – should have known someone would make race an issue. sad.

    Damn. Shes too ugly. Joseph should be with me.. <3

  • GradBoy

    @.: It was a joke, calm down. People are so uptight in this country. I also know he is a man, calling him boy is just an expression.

    Since you want to start in with me, I have to ask you why you are so sensitive? Are you an insecure black girl trying to date white boys- oops, men?!

  • GradBoy

    @sayde: Insecure little oreo black girl, red my earlier posts as to my nationality and background before you start subtly accusing people of racism. I’ve stated that I was joking. I wish this couple the best. Take a deep breath bfore you overreact to everything people post. Your own insecurities flare up?

  • America

    That’s ridiculous, #14.

    Persia is half white. Stop with the “black woman” nonsense. She has never dated a black man before. Even her daughter’s father is white.

  • Ann

    @Ann: Sorry, forgot Persia’s exhusband was black.

  • GradBoy

    @Ann: So only one black man? Someone is trying to get away!

  • Suzy

    it doesn’t matter how many hearts are broken now, his happiness is the only important thing, I wish you a happy long life full of love, congratulations JM&PW
