Congratulations to Olga Fonda — she spent her New Year’s getting engaged.
“The Vampire Diaries” star got engaged to her boyfriend of two and a half years, Liam Waite, on New Year’s Eve, E! News reports. The Russian actress — who plays Katherine’s vampire daughter Nadia Petrova on The CW series — shared the news on the 2014 People’s Choice Awards red carpet on Wednesday (Jan. 8).
Fonda was already rocking her diamond ring on the carpet. According to Fonda, her fiancé designed the ring himself.
As if that wasn’t already extremely romantic, Fonda revealed that Waite — a former actor who’s now in the hotel business — took her to where they had their first kiss to pop the big question right before midnight.
“Then the whole city lit up with fireworks,” Fonda says. “It was very romantic.”
All together now: Swooooon.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
“The Vampire Diaries” returns for its big 100th episode on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
