Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed Living Together: Sources Say Relationship Is ‘Very Serious’

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are living together. According to People Magazine, Ian and Nikki have taken their relationship to the next level, and sources say that things between them are “very serious.” Despite trying to keep their new romance on the down low, Ian and Nikki don’t seem to be hiding their love anymore. They have attended public events together, have been spotted holding hands, and have even been caught sneaking in a kiss or two.

“On Friday, the pair attended Heifer International’s Beyond Hunger Gala in Beverly Hills, where Somerhalder was honored. Though they arrived separately, the pair sat at a table together for a cozy date night. Then right before Somerhalder accepted his award, Reed leaned in to whisper something into his ear and planted a kiss on his cheek.”

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed were previously said to be “smitten” with one another. According to The Inquisitr, there does not seem to be any hope for fans of Nian (Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder), as Ian has taken his relationship with Nikki fairly fast. It doesn’t sound like this is just some kind of summer fling for him — or for her.

According to The New York Daily News, Nikki Reed has moved into Ian’s apartment in Atlanta, Georgia, which is where Ian lives because that is where The Vampire Diaries is filmed. Sources say that Nikki goes to the set of the television show every single day. It is unknown if there is any awkwardness between Nikki and Ian’s ex, Nina, because Nikki and Nina used to be great friends. That’s not to say that they are no longer good friends, but it has to be weird, right?

Ian Somerhalder, 35, and Nikki Reed, 26, have only been dating for a couple of months, but there is already some chatter about a possible wedding. It is clear that Ian would like to settle down and maybe start a family — he has always really been a “relationship” kind of guy — and although Nikki has already been married (she split from Paul MacDonald in May), it seems as though she would more than likely be open to giving marriage another chance.

One thing is for certain: Ian and Nikki would have some really great looking babies! Do you think that Ian and Nikki will end up getting engaged? Is their relationship headed in that direction?
