Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed’s May-December Romance

Nikki Reed Ian Somerhalder
Ian Somer­halder, famously known as the blood-sucking vam­pire Damon Sal­va­tore from the series The Vam­pire Diaries, has a new May-December romance with Twi­light actress, Nikki Reed.

The two stars are at the peak of their rela­tion­ship and are now engaged after only six months of dating.

The ground­work for this new rela­tion­ship was laid well before. as they have known each other for a while. When Nikki used to be mar­ried to Paul McDon­ald and Ian Somer­halder was dat­ing his Vam­pire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev, the cou­ples often went on dou­ble dates and spent a lot of time together. Ian and Nikki appar­ently had way more in com­mon than their for­mer partners.

Somer­halder and Reed are already proud par­ents of a beau­ti­ful horse named Eagle, which they adopted together. Mar­riage and chil­dren are def­i­nitely on the cards for the vamps, and they are look­ing for a suit­able time to begin their new lives.

But like every other cou­ple, Ian and Nikki do have their share of issues. For instance, he still has to work with his ex, Nina Dobrev, on the sets of The Vam­pire Diaries, but Nikki seems to be tak­ing it in stride and is super con­fi­dent about her fiancé and their May-December relationship.

An age dif­fer­ences between cou­ple is only an issue if they want it to be. At the end of the day, their love and respect for each other is all that mat­ters. Ian and Nikki seem to be bit­ten by the love bug, and spare no chance to praise each other. They seem to be just per­fect for each other.
