Vampire Diaries and Twilight worlds are finally coming together.
Vampire Diaries’ Ian Somerhalder and Twilight’s Nikki Reed are officially dating, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
The pair were spotted getting close at a Studio City, California, farmers market on Sunday. They appeared affectionate and at ease with one another as they grabbed coffee and other market favourites. Ian kept his arms around Nikki, kissing her on the cheek several times.
“Nikki Reed and Ian Somerholder are dating,” a source told Us Weekly, noting that the pair were spotted having dinner last week in the San Fernando Valley. The pair also grabbed a bite to eat at Kiwami in Studio City on Tuesday, July 15.
Furthermore, according to the magazine; the pairing isn’t a huge surprise, as Ian and Nikki run in the same Hollywood circles and Ian has dated Nikki’s Twilight costar Ashley Greene briefly back in 2009. Nikki is also a close friend of Ian’s famous costar ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev– and, in fact, the gal pals both dated Dancing With the Stars’ Derek Hough. Derek was Nikki’s first fling following her March split from husband Paul McDonald after two years of marriage.
