After plenty of whispers, the rumor that Twilight star Nikki Reed and her Vampire Diaries boyfriend Ian Somerhalder are engaged is true. E! News confirmed the news through various sources. Someone close to the couple says, "They're so happy." Adding, "They were crazy happy from the start. Their families love each other. It just feels really right."
According to the Daily Mail Somerhalder popped the question "over the holidays" and the pair has decided to keep their new relationship status a secret for the time being. Reed has reportedly been rocking her diamond sparkler on her right hand rather than her left to help quash rumors. But that doesn't mean she hasn't been sporting any new bling on that very important fourth finger. For the past month she's been photographed wearing the same two blingy diamond bands where a traditional engagement ring would go.
While the couple has yet to confirm their engagement, we could certainly see why they'd want to keep news secret. Reed only recently finalized her divorce from American Idol alumni Paul McDonald, and she has been dating Somerhalder for a short six months. But it also wouldn't be out of character for the actress to wed Somerhalder after dating for a short period of time. She did marry her first husband after only seven months of dating.
Somerhalder added fuel to the fire by with some suspicious statements. Just after New Years he posted a #TBT (seen above!) that hinted at a long future with Reed.
And don't expect a lengthy engagement from these two: A source told InTouch that they have been discussing a June wedding date.
