These Disney darlings are getting married! The Originals star Leah Pipes is engaged to her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, actor AJ Trauth, she exclusively reveals to Us Weekly.

“He proposed on Christmas Day,” Pipes tells Us. “There was a wrapped ring box under the tree… [and] it was empty,” she recalls of the romantic moment when her fiance proposed. “He’d been holding the ring behind his back and asked me to marry him. It was the best moment of my life!”

Trauth, 27, who played “Twitty” on Even Stevens from 2000 to 2003, bent down on one knee with a classic princess-cut diamond in a platinum band setting. “It’s so understated and elegant,” Pipes, 25, gushes of her engagement bling. “It’s such a wonderful symbol of our love… and it will never go out of style!” she says.

“We’ve known each other since we were teenagers,” the star of the Disney Channel’s 2004 flick Pixel Perfect tells Us of her relationship with Trauth. “We both grew up in the entertainment industry. He was actually very close to starring with me in the first movie I did.”

Baby’s got a name! Less than one week after giving birth to a happy, healthy baby girl, Rachael Leigh Cook and husband Daniel Gillies exclusively tell Us Weekly that they’ve decided upon a name: Charlotte Easton Gillies!

Cook, 34, and Gillies, 37, welcomed their bundle of joy to the world on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 9:02 a.m. at 6 lbs., 15 oz, the couple reveal.

“It’s a girl. The tiny new empress of my everything,” proud father Gillies shared his endearing thoughts with fans on Sunday, Sept. 29. “She’s immaculate. We’re delirious.” This is the first child for both parents.

And both Cook and Gillies will have their hands full this fall, with Cook currently filming TNT series Perception (she plays special agent Kate Moretti), and Gillies playing Elijah in new Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals (which premiered on Thursday, Oct. 3).

Us Weekly exclusively broke the news of the couple’s expectant news in May. “I’ve been hiding my rapidly growing bump while shooting but this kiddo is vying for screen time,” the actress told Us at the time. “We clearly have a future actor on our hands.”

Cook and Gillies, who appeared together on Showtime’s Broken Kingdom in May, tied the knot in August 2004.

“A lot of people are asking whether I’d prefer a boy or a girl,” he told Us at the time. “In truth, it doesn’t matter to me — I just can’t wait to meet little Keanu Robocop.”

Nina Dobrev on Ian Somerhalder Breakup: “People Aren’t Defined by Their Relationships”

Author: Jen | August 7, 2013 | Comments Off on Nina Dobrev on Ian Somerhalder Breakup: “People Aren’t Defined by Their Relationships”

Filed Under: | Interviews, Magazine Covers, Magazines, Nina Dobrev

nina-dobev-cosmopolitan-cover-inlineNearly three months after splitting from her Vampire Diaries costar Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev is having the time of her life hanging out with her gal pals — just don’t call their get-togethers pity parties.

“That’s not what our friendship is about,” she tells the September issue of Cosmopolitan of her connection with gal pal Julianne Hough, who split with love of two years Ryan Seacrest in March. “Unfortunately, that’s how it’s perceived, but there’s more to us. People aren’t defined by their relationships. The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships.”

The girlfriends have instead been focusing on their own wellness and betterment — Dobrev is even planning on opening up a yoga studio in the near future.

“Yoga changed my life,” she says of staying zen. “Hopefully, it will do that for others.”

“It’s been cool to find an active buddy — there are lots of girlie girls around,” she adds of Hough. “We don’t talk about makeup; we talk about life.”

And the next time Dobrev gets into a relationship, the actress explained, she knows exactly what she’ll be looking for. “You either have chemistry or you don’t, but a lot of what attracts me is a guy’s mind and humor and talent,” she says. “I need to get to know all those things before I fall for someone. I’m not a one-night-stand kind of girl. I’m a relationship girl.”

As for what type of guy she’s personally attracted to? “I’m progressive in some ways, old-fashioned in others,” she explains. “I like it when guys hold the door open and are sweet and thoughtful. The guys on our show are really good at that.”

“A man in a suit looking put together and dapper is very attractive, but I also kind of like the I-just-rolled-out-of-bed, a-little-bit-of-scruff, effortless, not-trying-hard-but-still-sexy guy,” Dobrev continues. “If a guy spends more time looking in the mirror than I do, that’s a problem!”

Well, this bites. Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhadler discovered his car had been broken into on Tuesday, March 19. The 34-year-old actor promptly shared a picture of his vehicle’s broken window via Instagram and publicly shamed the unidentified theft.

Nina Dobrev: “I Got Locked Out of the House” Before Elton John’s Oscars Party

Nina Dobrev often finds herself in dire situations on The Vampire Diaries, but on Sunday, Feb. 24, the actress faced a non-scripted dilemma: “I got locked out of the house for 30 minutes!”

“I was at a meeting and I left the house without my purse. I walked there and walked back and everyone had gone for brunch and I couldn’t get back into the house,” Dobrev told Us Weekly at Elton John’s annual AIDS Foundation viewing party for the Oscars. “I had to sit there and wait until everyone came back home.”

Fortunately, the 24-year-old Atlanta-based actress still had plenty of time to slip into her black and white Naeem Khan dress. “The plunging back is my favorite part, and I actually feel really comfortable in it,” Dobrev said. “This was the first dress I tried on. I tried a few on afterwards, but this is the one I ended up choosing. The print is really beautiful and I felt like it elongated everything.”

Dobrev was joined by her Armani-clad boyfriend and Vampire Diaries costar, Ian Somerhadler. “Nina had her arm wrapped between Ian’s as they slowly walked into the party,” a partygoer reveals. “It was a subtle but sweet gesture.”

Though the actress told Us she wasn’t sure if they would be attending any afterparties (“We’ll see where the night takes us!”), the pair hit up the Vanity Fair soiree and host Seth MacFarlane’s party at The Lot. Deciding to party hop was a smart move, according to Somerhalder, 34. “My life is fricking complete,” he tweeted. “I just had a five-minute conversation with Daniel Day-Lewis, my hero. Wow. Life is amazing.”

Dobrev admitted that she finds it hard to resist her favorite holiday fare, which includes turkey and brownies.

“I just did a fitting for my People’s Choice Awards dress and as they were altering it to fit me. I was like, ‘Take a couple of those pins out a few inches — leave a little room for the food!'” Dobrev joked.

When she isn’t noshing on her favorite holiday treats, Dobrev uses her Vitamix blender to make healthy shakes. “They’re delicious!” raved Ian Somerhalder’s girlfriend. “They’re really, really good. and it’s healthy but it’s still a snack.”
