If you thought “True Blood” star Anna Paquin’s topless love scene (NSFW) with co-star Stephen Moyer was convincing, well, that’s because they weren’t acting.
Paquin and Moyer — who play a telepathic waitress and a vampire, respectively, on the HBO hit — confirmed to TV Guide Magazine that they are, in fact, dating.
“The reason it was dodged last year was very intentional on both our parts,” Moyer tells the publication.
“We didn’t want to take anything away from the show.
Stepmom-to-be Anna Paquin, 27, and her fiancé’s daughter Lilac Moyer, 7, spent some time together in Santa Monica, Calif. During their outing the duo made a stop at Puzzle Zoo toy store.
Lilac’s father is Anna’s costar Stephen Moyer, 40, who is also dad to 9-year-old Billy – also from a previous relationship.
Moyer proposed to his Canadian-born girlfriend last August in Hawaii.
"There was a song in the first season, `White Sandy Beach in Hawaii,` which was kind of funny and ironic," a news daily quoted him as telling Access Hollywood.
"She's in bed and I am going to be there very soon myself!
"[It] all started out as a joke and then we decided to go to Hawaii with my kids," he added.
The couple started dating while filming season one of ‘True Blood’ in 2008, but did not confirm their relationship until February 2009.
" Michael Mc Millian, who plays Steve Newlin on the HBO vampire drama, said the entire cast has "been impressed" with how Paquin is handling her pregnancy.
"The show is taking great care of her, and I think she's probably really happy that she has some time off now to focus on what's to come."

The couple, who wed on August 21, 2010, might want to seek advice from costar Sam Trammell, 43, who welcomed twins Winston and Gus with girlfriend Missy Yager in August 2011.
