They're high as kites — on the wings of love!
Aaron Paul had more than one thing to celebrate at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles Sunday night. Not only did the actor, 33, nab his second Best Supporting Actor trophy for his turn as Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, but Paul seemed more in love than ever with Lauren Parsekian, his fiancee and stunning date for the night.
On ABC's pre-show red carpet, 24-year-old Parsekian (the co-CEO of Finding Kind Productions) gushed "it makes me so happy [to be here with him] . . . I'm honored to be his date. I love him, and I'm in awe of his talent."
Paul was just as smitten with Parsekian, who accepted his proposal over New Year's in Paris. "It's incredible. Im the luckiest man on the planet."
At the podium, the teary-eyed Paul acknowledged "my beautiful, most inspiring fiancee . . . You truly saved me."
The future bride and groom to be continued the celebration at AMC's Emmy After Party at L.A. hotspot Lure, where the duo stayed close as Paul accepted well-wishes and chatted with well-wishers.
The Idaho native was spotted lovingly rubbing the small of his bride-to-be's back and holding her close. "You can tell they're blissfully in love with one another," an observer at Lure says. "It was really sweet to see them. You could tell how supportive Lauren is of Aaron, yet Aaron seems equally proud and gracious to have Lauren as his partner."
Later in the evening, the duo escaped for some alone time in a corner booth at Lure — as Paul jokingly showed off his Emmy, she looked sweetly into his eyes.
