Well, that was quick. Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder started dating last summer, just as Nikki’s marriage to that no-name American Idol castoff was coming to an end (side eye, ‘cos you know that shit overlapped) and while six monthly is hardly enough to get to know someone – something you’d have thought she’d learned from her first failed marriage – I guess you can’t stand in the way of true love. That’s right, Nikki and Ian are engaged!
“She accepted with glee,” a source tells Us. “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.”
Apparently they moved in together 3 weeks after they started dating and they were shopping for engagement rings at Neil Lane before Christmas, so they clearly don’t give a shit what anybody else thinks. Good for them! What’s another Hollywood divorce, eh? Live it up! Treat yourselves!
Someone better book Nina Dobrev an extra therapy appointment this week.
