Get ready for a Vampire Diaries baby!
Candice Accola is expecting her first child with The Fray guitarist Joe King, and the young couple announced it on Instagram on Monday, with the help of Joe's two daughters from a previous marriage, Ava and Elise!
"Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo," Candice wrote. "Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming over and snapping this sweet pic 📷"
While that announcement may rank up there among some of the cutest we've seen in a long time, it certainly won't dampen the speculation that season seven of the CW vampire show -- after Nina Dobrev's departure in season six -- will be its last.
Obviously, Hollywood can get creative and work around an expecting co-star, but the writers would have a challenge weaving a pregnancy storyline into the plot because, as all us Vampire Diaries die-hards know, vampires cannot technically get pregnant because their bodies are frozen in time. ET has reached out to show reps to see what their plans are for Candice's role in the upcoming season.
The 28-year-old fan favorite plays Caroline Forbes, who is affectionately known as "Barbie Vampire" on the show, and is romantically linked to Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley). And, as the show revealed at Comic-Con, Team Steroline has "a lot of very unexpected twists and turns" to look forward to next season when it comes to Caroline and Stefan's relationship.
One positive sign for fans hoping the show will continue is that executive producer, Julie Plec, fully expects it will!
"I actually do not foresee the show ending after next season,” she told the crowd at Comic-Con. "We have more story to tell and we have this gorgeous family that’s not ready to split up next season."
We sure hope so!
