The Originals Claire Holt just had a ring put on it by her long-time boyfriend Matt Kaplan!

Congratulations to beautiful and talented Claire Holt, who plays Rebekah Mikaelson on The Originals and also Charmain Tully on Aquarius!

Claire announced on her Instagram account on Monday, July 13th, 2015, that she’s now engaged to her boyfriend Matt Kaplan. The picture of her and Matt shows her stunning emerald-cut engagement ring! Sounds like Matt is more than just her fiancé since she confessed that he helps her fine-tune the American accent she uses on Aquarius.

My boyfriend — Matt Kaplan — is American, so any time I’m unsure of how to say something, I say, ‘Hey how do you say this?’ and he yells it out.

I think it’s always going to sound funny to him and not quite right, but hopefully the public who watch it won’t be able to catch on!

Now we know what she meant when she left The Originals and said she wanted to focus and spend more time with loved ones, which included Matt. At the time she stated, “I made a life choice, not a career choice.” Now she can join newlywed BFFs Candice Accola, Leah Pipes, Joseph Morgan, and Ian Somerhalder, who were married during the past year. I’m sure they’ll be sharing some wedding day secrets with her. No word on whether her other BFF Phoebe Tonkin is engaged yet, but her boyfriend Paul Wesley just helped her celebrate her 26th birthday on July 12th, 2015.

Last year she told the US magazine Glamoholic that she was looking for some new challenges and would love to try different things, like action, comedy, and drama, “if someone is kind enough to hire me!” She got that chance at drama with her role as Officer Charmain Tully on Aquarius, which moves from Thursday nights at 9/8c, to Saturday nights at 9/8c, on NBC, beginning this week.

Not much is known about Matt, but he could be the Matt Kaplan that was just hired at Awesomeness TV to run their film division. According to Variety, Matt is the former executive and founder of Chapter One Films at Lionsgate, and will be the president of the new Awesomeness Films division.
