Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed’s relationship certainly is heating up. After just a few months together the adorable couple already have a ‘baby’ together! Before you get too carried away though — it’s a horse named Eagle! Read below for all the details.
Congratulations to Ian Somerhalder, 35, and Nikki Reed, 26, on their bundle of joy! While they may not be able to carry around their new four-legged baby, that didn’t stop the admittedly “proud dad” from showing off, by posting an adorable photo of him hugging the chestnut horse named Eagle.
Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed Have A ‘Baby’
Ian and Nikki are not hiding their love. The two have been friends for many years, but only recently took their relationship to the next level. The gorgeous vampires were spotted on July 20 getting hot and sweaty together while on a run followed by some sweet PDA while walking around the Studio City Farmers Market together.
While the relationship may be new, they are definitely taking some big steps and it seems that it is full steam ahead with the addition of their “big baby boy.”
The hunky actor took to Instagram to show off his gorgeous new horse, Eagle, and thank his lady-love, Nikki, for snapping the pic of their seemingly first embrace.
Raving about his new son, Ian captioning the pic, “Proud new dad… What amazing creatures they are. Wow. His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy.”
So sweet! Ian has a big spot in his heart for animals, especially his cat, Moke, who he frequently posts pictures with!
Ian Somerhalder And Nikki Reed’s Romance
Sharing a pet is not the only major step that these two are taking. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Nikki is already “in love” with Ian. A source told us, “She’s already saying that she’s in love with Ian, they spend all their free time together and they’re even talking about adopting a rescue dog together.”
It seems that these two are totally on the same page. Although Ian and his longtime girlfriend, Nina Dobrev, 25, called things off recently, and Nikki is in the process of divorcing her ex, Paul McDonald, that has not stopped these two from moving on.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, while at Comic-Con, Ian talked about marriage for the first time. While he did not say that he and Nikki are planning on getting married, when he was asked if he planned on getting married one day, he said, “I will be. I will be.” The actor then clarified saying, “I mean eventually, in my life! No, I mean eventually.”
Things really are going in the right direction for these two, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Ian and Nikki’s relationship needs to slow down?
