A vampire is getting married! Thankfully it’s not Sparkly McDiet-Coke-of-Vampires (aka Robert Pattinson). It’s none other than True Blood hottie Stephen Moyer, who proposed to girlfriend and costar Anna Paquin. The engagement news was released yesterday to People Magazine. Anna and Stephen have been dating since the first season of True Blood began filming in 2007. There are even some questions about whether there was some overlap between the end of Stephen’s seven-year relationship with British journalist Lorien Haynes, and the beginning of his relationship with Anna. Stephen and Lorien share custody of a daughter, Lilac, and Stephen has an older son, Billy, from another previous relationship.
It’s true love for True Blood couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The two are engaged to be married, reps for both actors on the HBO vampire series confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
No further details were available.
Paquin, who plays telepathic Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood, is originally from New Zealand and won a 1994 Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as the precocious child in The Piano.
Moyer, from Essex, England, plays bloodsucking Bill Compton on the series. He also has two children from previous relationships: a son, Billy, born in 2000, and a daughter, Lilac, born in 2002.
Last month, Paquin, 27, said of her nude love scenes with Moyer, 39: “Obviously, if you’re already with that person then you’re not having to sort of get over the ‘Wow, I’m naked with someone that I don’t even know the middle name of!’ ”
For his part, Moyer has said of his lady love, “My girl is hardcore.”
I think they’re a really hot couple, and congratulations to them. But I do wonder about Stephen. He seems to really love Anna, but I question if his devotion will last after True Blood goes off the air. He just seems like the kind of guy who moves on from women very quickly. But I’ll stop being such a Negative Nellie. I hope they’ll be fine, and I hope Anna gets the wedding of her dreams!

I wish them the best. I do adore that show – it’s got me looking forward to Sunday nights, which is something.
I agree Kaiser. They seem really happy and in love, but his history is moving on from one long term relationship directly to another long term relationship. Seems like “forever” to him is just until he gets bored.
Good luck to them both. Hopefully they can keep it going.
Ummm, I’m sorry, is he supposed to be attractive. YUCK. I find him so repulsively ugly.
I agree that this guy is a serial monogamist. And Colleen, I don’t get his “appeal” either. To me he’s gross.
I have a few questions:
1. How the HELL is her last name pronounced?! Anyone know?
2. I really don’t mean to be rude, because I really like her–so don’t jump my shit for this ok—but her teeth. Damn. I KNOW she can afford to have them fixed! WHY does she continue to have a mouth full of snaggle teeth like that? Every time she opens her mouth I cringe. Jesus.
I just love love love her outfits on the show and her perfect hair.
Good for them.
And I even like her snaggle teeth. its kinda nice when a star who is supposed to be so perfect , have an imperfection and not ‘fix’ it with surgery.
I am pretty sure it is pronounced like Pac-win. I could be wrong but it’s how I’ve always said it.
I always tell my girls, he left her for you, what makes you think you won’t become her?
Paquin is pronounced Pack-in.
I’m sorry but she is dog ugly and a hag. it’s ridicules bc Suki is supposed to be this hot young thing on the show… I really wish they would’ve cast a better looking leading lady then queen butterface.
there, I said it.
Oh no. I hope this doesn’t influence the writers’ decisions for the show, because I don’t really want Sookie to end up with Bill forever and ever. The book doesn’t have it that way.
i love the show, but the the way vampire bill pronounces sookie’s name: it’s like “suck-eeeegh”. hilarious!
I am very fond of the show, but I am not fond of either of them. I think both are horribly miscast, and looking at both of their mouths, drives me insane. Plus, they have the WORST accents I have ever heard. Other than that, the show is great.
2 children from previous relationships, run like the wind Anna. It’ll only end in tears.
I think they are perfect for the roles of Bill and Sookie, as for Anna’s name it is pronounced Pack-win..she is originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba ( for the geographically challenged it’s in Canada)her family moved to New Zealand when she was very young.
I think she’s so interesting looking and very attractive in a unique way.
damn, he looks kind of old and haggard though. love is blind?
I love how on any given post you can find 3 comments about how ugly the subject is, and another 3 about how hot.
It’s a little off topic, but I just want to state for the record that I think it’s awesome that we don’t agree about hotness all the time. How boring that would be. And we’d all be competing for the attention of the one officially hot person of our preferred gender. Which would make for terrible conceited “hot prototypes” and miserable everyone else. Yay for diversity!
I second that brownsuga!
When he get’s bored, he’s gonna move on (again)!
Will they last when True Blood ends? I mean, sometimes, the couple gets too caught up in the moment, with the steamy sex scenes, and they end up confusing fiction and reality.
I like Anna, I think she’s pretty, but this hair colour doesn’t suit her at all.
Well I’ve read all the books and I’ve watched the show since the premiere and I have to admit, Sookie and Bill have got to be the WORST characters! I cringe every time they come on scene, their acting is just god-awful!
uhh i find those 2 so annoying!
I wish they would break it off instead of put a ring on it. He is a manwhore and she is an annoying little twat. As soon as the series ends, he’ll be on the the next one.
Thanks for the pronunciations, girls–I’ll go with Pack-win. As for the horrible accents on the show, I am a New Orleans native and I can guarantee that some of them are real—like Lafayette and Renee. Just hearing them feels like home. 😉 Sookie & Bill’s voices aren’t even CLOSE. Did anyone else *shudder* when, on last week’s episode, Bill tried to sound French? ZOMG. Epic fail.
I like her teeth. She is not snaggle-toothed. She has a gap in the front. Otherwise, her teeth are fine.
The acting is fine in the show. It’s the accents that kill me. Being originally from Arkansas and having family in Louisiana, I find it more than a little cringe-worthy listing to Anna try to sound Southern.
Couldn’t they get a Southern woman for the role?
Other than that…love the show.
She’s so young — she’ll tire of him before long and dump his a*s. Then he’ll be middle aged and bitter. Happens everyday.
How did he propose?!?!!?
Stephen did NOT, I repeat, DID NOT, leave his ex for Anna! They broke up in 2006 and he met Anna in 2007. Just a tip here: Don’t ever trust STAR Magazine.
I cannot get your RSS feed to work in my browser (google chrome) can you tell me how to fix this please
Moyer’s a self-delusional CHUMP if he thinks marrying Paquin’s a sure bet. It’s a fool’s errand to marry someone who can flirt with – and make it – with both sexes. I give the union 1-2 years before he realizes he has double the normal probability of being cuckolded, and comes to his senses.
