Ian Somerhalder’s Big ‘Baby’ News – Actor Reveals New Sanctuary Project
Ian is set to open up an animal sanctuary for all his animal friends, Just Jared confirms. The actor, who recently adopted a new horse with new love Nikki Reed, 26, created the Ian Somerhalder Foundation in 2010 to help conserve and protect the environment and animals.
Ian wrote a sincere note on his website that detailed his new journey. Here is a portion of the note:
“So it’s true. My whole life is about to change in the most exciting, adventurous, challenging, and beautiful way it can..it’s time to announce my first baby! Babies are incredible vessels of life because they have the opportunity to teach you, push you to explore, nurture your sense of compassion and ultimately create hope. I guarantee you that this baby will do just that for me and for countless others. Now before you imagine me holding a tiny version of myself, that’s not the kind of baby I’m announcing. It’s the ISF Sanctuary Project!”

Ian and his new lady love Nikki have not only added a new member to their little family, but they also actively try and help other animal protection efforts. Ian and Nikki recently endorsed Animals Asia to end bear bile farming. This new couple makes such a great team!
In addition to their animal philanthropy, Ian and Nikki are getting very serious. Nikki is “already in love” with Ian and the couple has recently flaunted their new relationship at Comic-Con and the Young Hollywood Awards. The couple is now ready to take things to the next level in their romance, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY.
“Nikki and Ian are talking about getting tattoos together,” our source spilled. “They want to get a matching quote instead of each other’s names because Nikki has already done the name thing with two of her exes and neither one of them worked out. She wants to do something different with Ian.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Ian Somerhalder’s new “baby?” Are you excited for his new sanctuary? Will Nikki be a major part of it? Isn’t he the best humanitarian ever? Let us know!
