The 27-year-old starlet and her 39-year-old ‘True Blood’ co-star - who got engaged earlier this month - are currently searching for the perfect family home ahead of their nuptials.

The couple – who play on screen lovers, telepathic Sookie Stackhouse and vampire Bill Compton, in the US TV series – spent the weekend looking at properties in Santa Monica, California.

A source said: “They can’t wait to set up home together, they have viewed a few houses but are still yet to find the right one.”

A real estate agent took the duo to two moderately-priced houses while they search for a property with enough spare rooms to house Stephen’s two children - Billy, nine and Lilac, seven - from previous relationships.

The couple have been dating since they filmed the pilot episode of the vampire drama in 2007.

Anna recently admitted their off-screen relationship makes it easier for them to get naked together in front of the cameras.

She said: “Obviously, if you're already with that person then you're not having to sort of get over the, 'Wow, I'm naked with someone that I don't even know the middle name of!'

"I think that regardless of what kind of scene you're doing, the better you know the person... the more open and real your performance can be. And that goes for stunt scenes, heavy emotional scenes and sex scenes.”

It is not yet known when the couple plan to tie the knot.
