Somerhalder ‘very serious’ about Reed
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are not being casual about their new relationship.
The pair have been linked to one another for a few weeks now although neither has confirmed the romance.
But now a source tells People magazine this is definitely more than just a fling.
Ian and Nikki attended Heifer International's Beyond Hunger Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, where Nikki was spotted kissing Ian before he went up to collect an award, according to the outlet.
The low-key couple have dropped hints via social media as to the nature of their relationship, most recently getting a horse together.
"Proud new dad … What amazing creatures they are," Ian captioned a picture of their new family addition. "Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy."
Ian and Nikki first caused speculation when they were spotted going to a farmer’s market in Los Angeles in July and appeared very lovey-dovey.
"They were a bit affectionate and looked cute together," a source previously told People. "Nikki looked giddy but also a bit shy about Ian's affection. You could tell that it's all very new and that they haven't dated for long."
Nikki was previously married to musician Paul McDonald, from whom she split in March. Ian was previously dating Nikki’s friend and his Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev, before the relationship ended in 2013.
