Ian Somerhalder is officially off the market.
The actor is engaged to Nikki Reed, his girlfriend of 6 months.
“She accepted with glee,” a source told Us Weekly. “She is madly in love.”
Another source adds, “They were friends before, the groundwork had been laid before. They had always been attracted to each other, but always in another relationship. It may seem quick, but they knew it was right. They believe in the same things. They are dedicated to their work and helping others.”
“They were absolutely adorable [inside the jewelry store] and you could tell they are very much in love. Nikki was pointing out items for Ian and vice versa. They looked at some engagement rings, including a 14K. gold diamond slice halo ring and an 18K. gold green halo diamond ring both designed by Livin, and an 18K. large chocolate diamond ring by White cloud,” an eyewitness told HollywoodLife.com
The Vampire Diaries actor and Twilight actress started heating up in July 2014 when they were spotted together at an L.A. farmers market.
According to E! News, since hooking up, the lovebirds have adopted several animals together. In August, they proved they were getting serious by adopting a horse named Eagle .”Proud new dad… What amazing creatures they are. Wow. His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy,” Ian wrote on Instagram at the time with a photo of their new family member.
Congrats to the adorable couple!
