The pair has been dating for a little over six months but somehow they feel comfortable enough to get engaged, with US Weekly confirming the news that has been in the offing for a while now.
Sommerhalder plays the care-free, consequence-be-damned morally black vampire Damon Salvatore on the Vampire Diaries. His new fiancée, Reed, has been a long standing part of the Twilight Zone saga.
This seems a match made in vampire heaven!
Sommerhalder has had an on-again, off-again relationship with Diaries’ co-star Nina Dobrev the past few years, but things never seemed to work out. After six months with Reed and already ready to get married to her, that’s got to sting a little.
With the pair playing the on-again, off-again, dating couple Elena and Damon, things on set are sure to get more awkward.
This would be Ian’s first marriage, the second for Reed. She was previously married to American Idol Season Ten contestant Paul McDonald.
