Aaron Paul has a lot to celebrate!
The Breaking Bad
star, 33, not only won an Emmy
on Sunday for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series (his second), but he had his beautiful fiancée
Lauren Parsekian by his side.
Being engaged "is the greatest thing – ever," Paul gushed to PEOPLE on the red carpet before the awards. "She's the greatest thing that's ever happened to me."
Paul, who says his wedding is in May, has no pre-marital jitters.
"[I'm not nervous] at all." He says. "I'm just so blessed."
Clad in Prada for the big night, a dapper Paul says he worked extra hard to impress his leading lady
"She wakes up so
unbelievably gorgeous every day, so I try
to look good next to her," he said.
But Paul's other arm accessory isn't too shabby either.
"It's just incredible," he told reporters backstage of walking away with his gold statuette. "I was shaking and trying not to sob. It's just unreal that I get to do what I've always dreamt to do. I'm humbled and honored."
