Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed: Dating?

by at . Comments

Are Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed blending vampire families, so to speak, with a new romance? The duo were recently spotted together, sparking rumors.

It wasn't just a coincidental party run-in, either. The Vampire Diaries and Twilight actors were seen getting close at a Studio City, Calif., farmers market.

The pair appeared affectionate and at ease with one another as they grabbed coffee and possibly each other (wouldn't you if you were them?!) Sunday.

Ian Somerhalder, 35, was dressed down in black sweatpants, gray T-shirt and a ball cap, while Nikki Reed, 26, appeared to be going to or from a workout.

Both are (or were) reportedly single, so this new couple, if it turned out to be a couple of any relevance, wouldn't be at all scandalous. Just hot!

Reed announced her divorce from American Idol star Paul McDonald in March, while Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are said to be in "off" mode.

At least until The Vampire Diaries Season 6 returns this fall.

Then, their characters' unrequited love will take over the CW and the real-life reconciliation rumors will resume. You can bank on that. Sorry Nikki!

What do you think of these two as a potential couple, in all seriousness? We invite you to share all your comments (and ogle Ian photos galore) below:


No, he isn't hard on the eyes. He is beautiful. But after following him on twitter for awhile, I think he is full of himself. Too bad the personality doesn't come off as pretty as his blue eyes.
