Steven McQueen and Alexandra Silva are no longer engaged.

The Vampire Diaries star dropped the bombshell on Friday while attending the Voices In Displacement Gala hosted by The Syrian American Medical Society.

He apparently told US Weekly the news after being asked how the wedding planning was proceeding.

'You know what? Actually, we called it off,' said the 29-year-old to the publication, 'we did. But yeah, it's just the way it was. It happened.'

The Hollywood heartthrob went on to discuss what he's doing now that he's single, including 'enjoying me time.'

'If I’m stressed I like anything from hiking with my dogs to boxing, whatever comes up,' he added.

In terms of what he's looking for in a future partner, he said simply 'you know, just love. That’s all.'

The couple announced their engagement back in January of this year with simultaneous posts to Instagram showing him kissing the pretty model after putting a ring on her finger.

'She said yes' he captioned the photo of the duo reaching across a dinner table to smooch.

Alexandra, whose new diamond ring was just visible on her left hand, posted the same snap with the caption 'My best friend, love of my life…YES, yes yes a million times over @steven_r_mcqueen'.

The couple had loved to travel and regularly shared snaps from exotic places. They were in Hawaii in December and before that helped build homes in Nicaragua.  

Alexandra, or Allie as she she's known, first appeared on McQueen's Instagram when they went skiing in December 2016. Their shared photos have since been deleted from Instagram.

McQueen is best known for playing Jeremy on The Vampire Diaries and has also starred on NBC’s Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire. 

He was named after his legendary film star grandfather Steve McQueen who died in 1980. 

Fun times! The couple had loved to travel and regularly shared snaps from exotic places
