Joseph Morgan and Girlfriend Persia White Get Cuddly at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards (PHOTOS)

When Joseph Morgan accepted the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actor in a New Series, he had plenty of support by his side — namely his girlfriend and former Vampire Diaries co-star Persia White! The adorable duo walked the red carpet outside the Nokia Theatre in L.A., where they held hands and cuddled from the cameras.

Of course, Persia couldn’t have been more excited by her man’s well-deserved honor, and she sent a heartfelt tweet congratulating his award. “Congratulations to Joseph Morgan!” she wrote. “The most amazing man I've ever known! Winner of The Peoples choice award!”

Joe had his own words of admiration to share about his lady, as he gave an impromptu acceptance speech in the press room. “I want to thank my love, Persia White, who’s a constant champion of me. And I’m so lucky to have someone so amazing in my life.”
