By all outside appearances, Ian Somerhalder's marriage with Nikki Reed couldn't be more blissful. However, is the Vampire Diaries star faking his contentment with Reed? Does he really want to get back with Nina Dobrev?
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, all of the public sentiments and displays of affection between Somerhalder and Reed are a little suspicious. After all, if the two really are happy with each other, then why do they feel the need to convince everybody else?
As fans will recall, Reed shared a message for Somerhalder on her Instagram account in honor of his 37th birthday. However, instead of a simple congratulatory message, Reed decided to get personal and flaunt her love for the whole world to see.
"You are my every dream brought to life. With our hands pressed together I know that we will always find our way home. You are a gift to this world, a teacher of light and a student of love. You radiate warmth in vibrant reds and deep orange hues," she wrote. "I often wonder what it would be like to see autumn arrive through your eyes. Here is to the next 65 years together, holding hands, strolling through the woods, still learning, still listening. Happy happy birthday...I love you."
While Reed's Instagram love letter might appear a little over the top, Somerhalder recently shared his own sentiments about Reed.
The Vampire Diaries star was asked if he was happy in his marriage, to which he answered, "Every single day. Look who I get to wake up with. We're under kitties and dogs, and it's just pure bliss."
At the same time, Dobrev has been active on social media as well. In fact, the former Vampire Diaries star is vacationing in Maui and has been posting bikini pictures of herself on Instagram. Is this her way of showing Somerhalder what he is missing out on?
Although these reports have yet to be proven accurate, Gossip Cop is reporting that Nikki Reed is not worried about Ian Somerhalder reuniting with Nina Dobrev. A source told the outlet that the claims of Reed's jealousy are "ridiculous" and not founded on truth.
The reports of Reed's concern that her husband might return to Dobrev first surfaced on social media. Somerhalder and Dobrev's names were trending on Twitter under the hashtag, "We Miss Damon and Elena," which was thought to have caused some jealousy on Reed's part.
In the end, only time will tell if Somerhalder and Reed are truly happy with their marriage. Furthermore, even if there is some trouble in their relationship, it isn't clear if Dobrev even wants Somerhalder back.
An inside source told Celeb Dirty Laundry that Dobrev has not been happy with Somerhalder and Reed's social media activity as of late. Apparently, Dobrev is disappointed with their displays of affection to the point that she now regrets being a part of The Vampire Dairies and her past relationship with Somerhalder.
"Nina has tried to stay strong watching Ian and Nikki flaunt their relationship in her face, then witnessed them rush to the altar. And now she's at the point of regretting her time on The Vampire Diaries completely," the source explained. "Nina knows that if she had never done the show, she wouldn't have fallen in love with Ian in the first place."
Until more information is released on the matter, it is unknown if Somerhalder really wants to return to Dobrev. If Somerhalder's recent comments on the happiness of his marriage are true, then fans of a reunion might be waiting a long time before Somerhalder calls it quits with Reed.
