‘A Magical night with this incredible woman. A Perfect ending to 2019,’ wrote Facinelli, who played Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight series.
Harrison wrote: ‘Bye 2019 thanks for kicking my butt, making me stronger than ever, protecting my family and hurtling me toward my dreams also, not a bad way to ring in the new year with my sweetheart.’
