WTF?? A TVD Star Got Engaged MONTHS Ago & No One Ever Talked About It

By  | 

Uhh, how the heck did everyone miss this?? Apparently, one of The Vampire Diaries‘ fan-favorite actors, Matt Davis (a.k.a. Alaric Saltzman), got engaged THREE months ago, and no one ever talked about it. Alright, sure, some fans did, but in terms of the media? Zero, zilch, zippola. It wasn’t ’til our friends at VampireDiaries.com mentioned the proposal that we were made aware of the fact. But now that we do know, let’s celebrate!

Though the 38-year-old hottie’s relationships on his hit series are far from blissful — the worst of ’em ending when his bride was killed at the altar on their wedding day by her own brother — it appears that his life is not imitating art, as he popped the question to girlfriend Brittany Sharp, a former Miss Georgia USA, during a vacation in Italy back in May:

But we guess the public’s not too far behind, as, according to the caption for the following photo, they only celebrated their engagement a couple days ago: “We woke up feeling extremely grateful this morning. Such a special night celebrating our love surrounded by the most amazing family & friends on the planet | @sandylincoln07 You & Ash man threw one hell of an engagement party. Matt & I can’t thank you enough . 08.21.16”

Congrats to the happy couple!

As great as the cast members of The Vampire Diaries are, they are prone to HUGE scandals:
