“True Blood”: Love at first bite

Telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse may soon be struggling to deny her ever-growing attraction to ancient-but-oh-so-good-looking vampire sheriff Eric, but her alter-ego, Academy Award-winning actress Anna Paquin, has already given her heart to on-and-off-screen lover Stephen Moyer.

The pair has officially announced their engagement!

Us Weekly and People both report that the actors had no further comment other than to confirm their betrothal. Us Weekly refers to a previous quote by Stephen in which he explained why he and Anna initially kept their budding relationship on the down-low.

“The reason it was dodged last year was very intentional on both our parts,” explained 39-year-old Stephen. “It was very important to me that the cast and crew we were working with didn’t feel it was fickle, and didn’t feel it could possibly potentially encroach on their lives, you know, just like, ‘Oh the two stars are having a thing.’ We didn’t want to take anything away from the show.”

Stephen has two children – Billy, born in 2000, and Lilac, born in 2002 – from a previous relationship. This is the first engagement for Anna, 27.
