‘Harry Potter’ Star Scarlett Byrne Engaged To Hugh Hefner’s Son Cooper

Cooper Hefner, son of Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner, has become engaged to Harry Potter star, Scarlett Byrne. And boy, is her engagement ring huge.

Cooper, the 23-year-old film producer, popped the question to Scarlett in London Thursday after jetting to her home town. He first, very traditionally, asked her father for her hand in marriage and then gave her an absolutely enormous yellow diamond ring, which can be seen below.

According to E-Online, After Byrne, 24, said yes to Hef’s son, they celebrated with the family at The Ritz Hotel. The image above reveals her showing off her ring while enjoying dinner with her husband-to-be.

Cooper is son to Hugh Hefner and his second wife, Kimberley Conrad.

Harry Potter fans will remember Scarlett as playing the part of Pansy Parkinson in the popular Harry Potter movie franchise. She will probably find the Playboy mansion a whole load more comfortable than her stay in Hogwarts.

Scarlett Byrne has had other major roles, however, including the part of Lexi in the popular TV series Falling Skies. She will also appear in the role of Nora in the upcoming season seven of The Vampire Diaries.

As reported in the Mirror, Hugh Hefner himself was thrilled at the news and sent the couple a congratulatory tweet.

And Cooper tweeted that famous ring photo too.

Meanwhile, speaking of The Vampire Diaries, the Inquisitr recently reported that three new Heretic characters have now been cast for the hit TV show. These include the show’s very first same-sex couple, as well as a fun-loving, evil vampire-witch hybrid which should liven up the show to no end. The same-sex couple features Scarlett Byrne with Teressa Liane.

The new additions were described as “nasty, nasty, nasty girls” by Julie Plec at the San Diego Comic Con.
