Another "One Tree" Hookup
By Gina Serpe
Another perk of working on the set of One Tree Hill? There's a good chance Chad Michael Murray will propose to you.
Murray, 24, is set to tie the knot for a second time with a cheerleading extra on his WB series, 18-year-old Kenzie Dalton, People reports. It'll presumably be the first marriage for Dalton.
No details on the would-be hitching were made available, though People quotes an unnamed source close to the couple denying rumors of a pregnancy. Murray and Dalton have reportedly been dating since December.
The new pairing, though, could make things more than a little awkward around the watercooler.
After being engaged for a little less than a year, Murray took his first trip down the aisle in April 2005 with then-soulmate and fellow One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush, 23. They tied the knot in a lavish oceanside ceremony in front of family, friends and costars.
But the camera-ready couple didn't last long. The WB poster children announced a separation just five months later, amid rumors, never confirmed, of Murray's infidelity.
"I am saddened to announce that Sophia and I are separating," Murray said at the time. "This is a very difficult time for me."
Bush echoed the sentiments, saying, "This is a difficult and unfortunate situation. I am glad this is being resolved sooner rather than later."
In February, Bush filed for an annulment, citing "fraud" as the reason for wanting to strike marriage number one from the record books.
"Sophia went into the marriage believing in the sanctity of marriage," an unnamed friend of the actress told People last October, "and Chad simply did not share that vision."
While the ex-couple is still contracted to get smoochy onscreen, offscreen Bush seems to have found a new partner.
The actress has recently been linked with The Day After Tomorrow star Austin Nichols.
