We wish you all the same," Joseph and Persia's joint statement in the WetPaint report reads.
The entertainment Web site further noted on how Joseph Morgan happily talked about the love of his life during the HuffPost Live interview in September 2013. The CW star admitted that he is very happy and lucky that Persia White came with him to New York during a vacation. "I get the weekend off so we get to experience a little of that. But that's all I'm going to put out there - I'm going to keep the rest for myself," the British actor shared.
Joseph Morgan continued to portray Klaus Mikaelson in the CW Network's "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff series called "The Originals." As for Persia White, the Fashion & Style report revealed that the star of the former CW show "Girlfriends" has been progressively working on her acting and music career.
