We were brokenhearted when we heard the news that Vampire Diaries co-stars Candice Accola and Zach Roerig had broken up after nearly a year of dating. Though they never officially confirmed their relationship status, we were ‘shipping this duo hardcore and we adored all the sweet tweets the couple shared back and forth.
Thankfully, their failed relationship hasn’t seemed to cause any awkwardness on the set of TVD — and Candice certainly isn’t slurping down the Ben & Jerry’s in attempt to mend her broken heart. In fact, the blond-haired beauty already has a new beau!
In a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune, Candice revealed that she and her man had just gone to Costa Rica on a whim. “My boyfriend and I made a last-minute decision to go to the Osa Peninsula. It was one of those trips where you take a plane into the rainforest, and then you hike through this jungle. It was incredible.”
So, just who is this spontaneous and adventurous boy? We have a theory.
Back in August, Candice and her friends attended a concert by Kelly Clarkson and The Fray when the acts teamed up for a show in Alpharetta, Georgia. Just one month later, Candice was seen dancing onstage at yet another Fray concert in Nashville, Tennessee... which coincidentally, was the location of the “most epic New Year’s kiss” of her life three months after.
On February 2, Candice was spotted attending the DirecTV Super Bowl Party with none other than Fray guitarist, Joe King. The duo sat side-by-side at the game the following afternoon, so we couldn’t help but come to our own conclusion...
While she has yet to confirm her new love, it’s safe to say that Candice Accola and Joe King are more than just friends!
