'The Vampire Diaries' star Ian Somerhalder is reportedly very serious for'Twilight' star Nikki Reed, whom he started dating a month ago. The couple, who have tried to keep their relationship under wraps barring a few public appearances together, cannot get enough of each other, reported People magazine. The pair attended Heifer International's Beyond Hunger Gala in Beverly Hills on Friday, where Somerhalder, 35, was honoured. Though they arrived separately, the pair sat at a table together for a cozy date night. Then right before Somerhalder accepted his award, Reed, 26, apparently leaned in to whisper something into his ear and planted a kiss on his cheek.
The low-key couple were first spotted out together at a farmers' market in Studio City, California, July 20, where they sipped on coffee and picked up some goods. "They were a bit affectionate and looked cute together. Nikki looked giddy but also a bit shy about Ian's affection. You could tell that it's all very new and that they haven't dated for long," a source said. Their relationship comes months after Reed announced her amicable divorce from musician Paul McDonald in March after two-and-a half years of marriage. Somerhalder split from co-star and longtime girlfriend Nina Dobrev in 2013.
