Las Vegas reached record highs Saturday and not just because of the sun – sexy AnnaLynne McCord brought the heat to WET REPUBLIC with her hunky vampire boyfriend Kellan Lutz. AnnaLynne was at the ultimate daylife destination celebrating her 23rd birthday sponsored by FIJI Water. The hundreds of bikini-clad fans erupted in cheers as AnnaLynne and Kellan arrived at the adult playground. The birthday girl arrived in classic Rayban sunglasses, a tiny jean skirt and “Rain Man” stamped tank top, covering a string bikini. “Twilight” star Kellan beat the heat in striped board shorts and beige tank.
“We’re here at MGM’s WET REPUBLIC celebrating my 23rd birthday,” AnnaLynne said on the red carpet as she revealed that “I’m waiting to open my presents when we get in the [VIP Bungalow] so I’ll have to tell you [what I get] later.” With her actual birthday the day before, AnnaLynne wasted no time in getting the celebration started in Vegas.
The “90210” starlet revealed that in the upcoming season her character “Naomi is desperately trying to hold onto her confident status from last year and she’s going about it all the wrong ways. You’re going to see a lot of crazy Naomi this year.”
As boyfriend Kellan approached, AnnaLynne admitted that she prefers vampires to werewolves since she’s not a fan of hairy chests. Kellan divulged his love of Las Vegas and said, “I love to gamble. My father comes out here a lot, so it’s great bonding time. Pool parties are the best part about [Vegas]. [WET REPUBLIC] is my favorite pool.”
The hot couple made fans ecstatic as they signed autographs, took photos and mingled with the growing crowd at WET REPUBLIC. Later making their way to the exclusive VIP bungalow with an entourage of friends to celebrate the big day, AnnaLynne’s sister Angel arrived to excited cheers and many hugs from the birthday girl. Kellan looked ready for a game of Uno as he carried the cards around the bungalow while munching on an array of delicious food including the Chilled Seafood Sampler and Chips and Dip for sharing.
DJ Skratchy announced the celebration while the crowd joined in singing “Happy Birthday” to AnnaLynne as a beautiful, tropically decorated three-tier birthday cake was delivered. Friends snapped photos of the 23-year-old as she celebrated her big day with the hibiscus-topped FIJI Water-themed cake. Everyone then stripped down to their bathing suits and hopped into the private dipping pools to cool down at Vegas’ hottest destination.
