Emma Roberts family had been surprised by her engagement. The Unfabulous actress’s family felt blind side that the Nickelodeon star’s has accepted a proposal from ‘American Horror Story‘ star Evan Peters. Twenty two year old Roberts is twenty six year old Peters’s co star. He gave her a pink, gold and diamond ring over the Christmas Holiday in New York City.
Although there is much happiness by her stepmother Eliza Roberts and grandmother Lila Garrett they do say that upon hearing the news they were left surprised.
Asked for her reaction, Eliza, who is married to Emma’s father Eric Roberts, was captured on video by gossip website TMZ.com saying:
”I think I know what he’s talking about. I don’t know if these guys know.”
She then proceeded to tell other family members that Emma is ”getting married.”
She added: ”We’re very happy for her. If she’s happy, we’re happy.”
Asked if she saw the engagement coming, Eliza said:
”I mean no, not really, but it’s very romantic and if she’s happy, we’re happy.”
Her grandmother added: ”Of course (we’re happy), I didn’t know about it. As long as we don’t see it going, that’s the important thing.”
Eliza insisted she had ”no idea” if they would be paying for Emma’s wedding but dismissed the idea that she is too young to tie the knot.
She said: ”Some very lasting marriages have started very young.”
