More Congrats are in Order — Another Twilight Star Just Got Engaged!
At the moment, everyone’s talking about Nikki Reed & Nina Dobrev, due to their recent pictures from the Vampire Diaries finale dinner, but another one of Ian Somerhalder‘s girls actually has way bigger news to share this week: Maggie Grace is engaged!
According to Us Weekly, the 33-year-old blonde actress, who appeared as Irina Denali in the fourth and fifth Twilight movies — Breaking Dawn — Part 1 and Part 2 — is tapped to marry boyfriend Brent Bushnell, the founder of an engineering entertainment firm called Two Bit Circus. The two met last year, and reportedly plan to walk down the aisle sometime later this year.
Before Nikki or even Nina ever dated the now-38-year-old actor, he and Maggie gave love a try. The two met on the set of Lost — they actually played step-brother and step-sister on the series from 2004-2010 — and began dating a few years after their initial meeting. The relationship didn’t last long, but, according to a 2015 interview, Maggie says she and Ian “are still very good friends.”
This is the second Twilight cast engagement in the past few months, as Ashley Greene got engaged to her love, Paul Khoury, over the 2016 holiday season.
The Twilight cast is far from innocent. Just look at all the scandals the stars were caught in:
The Cheating Scandal Heard 'round the World
In 2012, much to the dismay of dedicated Twilight fans, Kristen Stewart was caught, on camera, getting cozy with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, while she was still dating Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.
After the pictures were released, she issued a public statement, saying, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
The kicker: The director was married, too — to KStew's SWATH mother, Liberty Ross! Fortunately, she found love again and just got remarried on Valentine's Day 2016.
