They’ve “been in love with for years,” a source told E! “They’re so happy. They were crazy happy from the start. Their families love each other. It just feels really right.”
This of course comes as a shock since Ian was previously dating his co-star, Nina Dobrev — and they were friends with Nikki and her ex-husband, Paul McDonald.
“They were absolutely adorable [inside the jewelry store] and you could tell they are very much in love. Nikki was pointing out items for Ian and vice versa. They looked at some engagement rings, including a 14K. gold diamond slice halo ring and an 18K. gold green halo diamond ring — both designed by Livin, and an 18K. large chocolate diamond ring by White Cloud,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Nikki said she wears the ring on her right hand because they want to keep it quiet for now. They mentioned a June date, they are really excited,” a source previously told InTouch.
