On Monday, "One Tree Hill" alum James Lafferty revealed he's engaged to "Royals" actress Alexandra Park. "She said yeah," the 35-year-old actor captioned his Instagram post, as an elated Park, 31, showed off her engagement ring. Lafferty and Park are said to have first met in 2015 when he directed a Season 2 episode of her E! show, according to Us Weekly.
Park played Princes Eleanor "Len" Henstridge on the drama, which depicted a fictionalized version of Britain's royal family. Though the series ended in 2018, Park spoke out in 2017 against showrunner Mark Schwahn, who had been accused of sexual harassment. Schwahn was previously at the helm of "One Tree Hill," where Lafferty portrayed Nathan Scott from 2003-2012. Park has kept much of her relationship with Lafferty under wraps. In 2018, she posted a photo of herself with Lafferty in Monaco, crediting fellow "One Tree Hill" alum Stephen Colletti for playing photographer.
The details of the proposal were not revealed; however, Park, who played Princess Eleanor on the E! series, posted a picture from Palm Springs, Calif. just hours before the big announcement. Of course, this level of privacy should come as no surprise to their fans. After all, the 31-year-old bride-to-be and her future groom have kept their relationship out of the limelight for the past few years. The dynamic duo appeared to make their relationship Instagram official in 2018, when Park posted a picture of the duo standing with Lafferty's One Tree Hill co-star Stephen Colletti at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival in Monaco. Lafferty did the same. "Not sure why @stephencolletti and I are dressed for Easter Sunday," he wrote on Instagram at the time, "but at least @alexandrapark1 came to play. #FTV2018." The 'One Tree Hill' cast are all grown up! James Lafferty, who starred in the iconic teen drama, is officially engaged to 'The Royals' actress Alexandra Park. Congratulations are in order for One Tree Hill star James Lafferty and The Royals actress Alexandra Park who are set to say "I do". The sweet couple announced their engagement on September 6, with the 35-year-old OTH alum taking to Instagram to reveal he had proposed to the Aussie beauty. "She said yeah," he captioned an adorable selfie, which showed his wife-to-be cozying up behind him in their kitchen. Alexandra showed off her ring, which featured a stunning diamond. The couple have been dating since at least 2018, when they first began sharing snaps of each other on social media, however they've been relatively private in the years since. While Alexandra is yet to share the exciting news on her own Instagram page, fans were quick to congratulate her and her future hubby in the comments of his snap. "Congrats to you girl!! Can't wait to see what this new chapter of your life looks like! So happy that you are happy," one fan wrote, while another commented, "congrats on your engagement." It seems like just yesterday that James was a fresh-faced teen on TV screens during the One Tree Hill days — now he's all grown up! He has reunited with his former cast mates over the years, mostly notably they all got together back in 2016 at Chicago's EyeCon Convention. James, who portrayed Nathan Scott on the teen drama that ran for nine seasons from 2003 to 2012, posed for a snap with Chad Michael Murray. "I think you all know this guy… @thisisjameslafferty – still as kind as he is talented. Great seeing the whole crew this weekend. Yes that's @stephencolletti photo bombing the back-round. Much love to all! #OTH," Chad captioned an Instagram snap. Talk about a throwback!
