Somerhalder: Being married is great
Ian Somerhalder says his life is currently “the best time I’ve ever had” after marrying Nikki Reed back in April.
The 36-year-old actor wed Nikki Reed back in April after their friendship turned romantic.
And opening up about his newlywed status, Ian admitted he still can’t believe how lucky he is to have snared 26-year-old Nikki.
“Amazing. It's great," Ian told E! News when asked how he was finding married life. "It's the best time I've ever had."
Ian is currently in New York promoting the season finale of The Vampire Diaries.
He’s back to work after he and Nikki marked their nuptials with a honeymoon in Brazil and Costa Rica.
Posting a shot with his wife on Instagram on Wednesday, Ian wrote: “Feet back on US soil aka... New York City. Dreaming of the Costa Rica rainforest. Thank you to this beautiful country: it's land and its people. Thank you to this beautiful woman who makes every day a dream come true. Pura Vida. (sic)”
The season six finale of The Vampire Diaries will see the final scenes from Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert.
And while the upcoming seventh season will mark a new chapter for the show following the departure of one of its integral characters, Ian has faith that fans will be thrilled with the direction it’s going in.
Revealing that the programme is set to return to its former “volatile, sexy” mood, Ian told People.com: “It’s the stuff that we all fell in love with. Season 1 and 2 of the show were so dark. It was awesome.
"I want to get back to seeing an episode of the show and saying, 'Wow. That is a very well-crafted, put-together piece of material that is really going to affect people.' "
