Soon after, the two dated for a few years and announced their engagement in May 2014. Just two months after their engagement, the couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on July 5. 

For their wedding, the duo only had 26 guests at a private villa by the sea, where they held their wedding. They chose a location by the sea since both of them love the ocean and grew up by them. For their honeymoon, they flew over to Negril, where they cliff jumped together. 

The couple is still going strong after all these years. They recently celebrated their sixth marriage anniversary in July 2020. The actor took to Instagram to share a heartfelt post about his wife. Via the captions, Morgan revealed they had been together for almost nine years and how happy he is to share his journey with her. 

Does Joseph Morgan Have Kids?

The actress has a 25-year-old daughter Mecca Morgan White from her previous relationship. 

While the identity of Mecca’s biological father is unknown, Morgan has stepped up and become a father figure to his stepdaughter. After his marriage to Persia, he adopted Mecca as his own. 

Mecca has been following her parent’s footsteps and trying to make a name for herself in the entertainment industry. In 2018, Mecca released a self-directed and comedy short movie Juice Truck under her parents’ production company, Night Owl Productions. She even won the award for Best Woman Filmmaker in the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards.

The TVD stars do not have a child of their own. Regardless, they seem to enjoy themselves with Mecca, as evident by their respective Instagram. On Thanksgiving last year, Mecca had shared a wholesome post of the trio dancing and enjoying their time together.
