It looks like Storybrooke may be hosting a royal wedding next season. That is if it isn’t blown away to oblivion in this Sunday’s season finale.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Once Upon a Time star Lana Parrilla, who plays Regina and Storybrooke’s Evil Queen, recently got engaged. Her king? Longtime boyfriend Fred Di Blasio.
Apparently Di Blasio popped the big question on April 28, while the pair were touring Israel along with some cast members from fellow ABC drama Scandal. The precise details of the proposal remain “private,” but Parrilla told The Times of Israel that they were “celebrated” by the locals. The pair actually felt so welcomed, they are “thinking about returning to Israel each year.”
Parrilla and Di Blasio have also been getting plenty of kind words and support from Once Upon a Time fans, who shared their congratulatory messages with the couple via Twitter. Even some of their trip mates chimed in.
“Cant forget my new buds @LanaParrilla and Fred!” Scandal’s Guillermo Diaz wrote recently. “They made our Israel trip xtra special.”
Parrilla added Wednesday, “Words can’t describe our gratitude @ the wonderful outpouring of goodwill in regards to our engagement! Thank u! We luv you!”
The Once Upon a Time finale airs Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
