candice accola joe king engaged vampire diaries fray 'The Vampire Diaries' star Candice Accola and The Fray guitarist Joe King get engaged

Candice Accola, one of the stars of “The Vampire Diaries” on The CW, has gotten engaged to her boyfriend, Joe King, the guitarist and songwriter for the band, The Fray.

Accola, 26, and King, 33, both announced their happy news via Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday (May 29).

King’s first post turned out to be a little bit cryptic. He sent his Instagram followers a photo of Italian cheeses with a caption that read:

“She said yes”

While statements of this nature usually do mean an engagement, confirmation of the happy news had to come from Accola. The actress also posted a photo on Instagram, this one showing the happy couple and coming with the caption:

“Cheers from the future Mr.&Mrs. Joseph Aaron King”

Accola’s follow-up was another image of the joyful couple — in which the newly engaged lady showed off her ring — with a simple caption:


King seems to have felt the same way. His own second photo showed Accola in a close-up shot and was captioned with:

“I’m a lucky man”

One of Accola’s “TVD” co-stars was quick to offer her congratulations to the happy couple. Nina Dobrev (who plays the lead role of Elena on the series) posted the following to the actress behind the character of Caroline Forbes on her Twitter account:

“DYING RIGHT NOW! SO excited/thrilled/happy/hyperventilating over ur engagement! #matchmadeinheaven I mean.. #matchmadebynina”

Was Dobrev responsible for the happiness of the day? Whether she was or not, wedding bells seem to be in the future for Accola and King.
