This vampire’s found eternal love!

Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola, 26, announced her engagement Wednesday to Joseph Aaron King on her Instagram account, captioning a blissful photo of the couple “Cheers from the future Mr.&Mrs. Joseph Aaron King.”

King, 33, who is the guitarist for rock band The Fray, himself showed off a picture of his new fiancée with her engagement bling on his own Instagram account, captioning the photo “I’m a lucky man.”

Someone else who seems just as thrilled as the future bride-to-be? Recently single costar Nina Dobrev, who expressed her excitement on her official WhoSay account and in a series of Tweets.

“DYING RIGHT NOW! SO excited/thrilled/happy/hyperventilating over ur engagement! #matchmadeinheaven I mean.. #matchmadebynina,” Dobrev wrote, sharing her costar’s sweet photo, shortly after the announcement.
