We get it; Candice Accola has the perfect life. Not only does the blonde bombshell play one of the sassiest and most fabulous characters on television — Caroline Forbes on The Vampire Diaries — but she is engaged to Joe King, guitarist for The Fray. When these two tie the knot, Candice is going to enter uncharted territory: being a stepmom! But don’t worry about this Florida gal, she seems to have everything under control.

When Candice and her hubby-to-be were ringing in 2014, they decided to forgo kissing each other at the stroke of midnight and to share the love with Joe’s two little girls, Ava and Elise. “Happy New Year! Hope everyone is lucky enough to spending the start of 2014 with those they love! I sure am :) #thankful #happy,” Candice captioned a WhoSay photo of the adorable foursome.

Candice recently revealed that she and Joe would be getting married in New Orleans — which set out Klaroline shipping hearts ablaze — making this nuptial exchange a destination wedding for the lovely couple in a city they both adore. And after seeing Candice and Joe rock out in The Fray’s new video for “Love Don’t Die,” we really hope Candice, Joe, and his daughters are ready to perform at the big event, whenever it may be.

What do you think about Candice entering stepmotherhood? Isn’t this NYE photo adorable? Hit the comments and let us know!

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 23 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
