‘Vampire Diaries’ Star Zach Roerig Is A New Daddy And A New Homeowner

Zach Roerig is taking his daddy duties very seriously.

The 28-year-old TV hottie just filed paperwork asking a Georgia court to give him full custody of his never-before-heard-of-until-now 2-year-old daughter citing the baby mama’s current stint behind bars… and he’s been prepping fo parenthood like a pro.

So first things first — a new home — which The Vampire Diaries star just purchased in Atlanta, Georgia for a modest $455,000 on Jan. 19 of this year, Celebuzz has learned.

According to property records, the cute 4-bed, 2.5-bath is located in the Poncey-Highland neighborhood near where Roerig films the hit CW series. And it’s perfect for the family of two given that the humble home is in one of the “Most Walk-able” historic neighborhoods (with adorably cute Southern porch parties, annual picnics, even pumpkin carvings) and just a block away from kid-friendly fun like Freedom Park, neighborhood community garden, playground, The Beltline jogging/biking trail, grocery shopping, Springdale Park Elementary and plenty of shopping.

The charming brick townhome-style abode is over 3,000 square feet with three floors of oak hardwood living space that includes a third floor bonus room with covered terrace and city vistas.

The over 4,000 square foot lot has tons of room to run around with a landscaped private front yard and wrap-around front porch and granite stoop.

Inside is a cozy living room with fireplace and wide central hallway that connects the living area and large kitchen that features dark wood cabinets, rich granite and stainless steel appliances to cook up those family meals.

And the dining room can easily entertain 12 people (including extended family).

The master bedroom suite is huge with an extra-deep walk-in closet and ensuite luxury bathroom detailed with travertine tiles, two separate sink vanities, separate Whirlpool tub and shower room.

And just for Roerig’s little girl — a private family/play room on third floor has a covered porch with downtown city views.
