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.
