Forget canoodling at Comic-Con. Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are taking their blossoming romantic relationship to a whole 'nother level.
They're adopting a HORSE together!
On Tuesday, The Vampire Diaries actor shared a photo on Instagram of himself with the animal, giving a shout-out to his Twilight star girlfriend.
Ian captioned the above photograph:
“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.”
Their big baby boy?
It's not clear in what capacity they have taken the creature under their collective wing, but the two stars are clearly an item and not shying away from that fact.
Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed first sparked rumors when they went public, or at least didn't try to hide their romance, at a L.A. Farmer’s Market in July.
They seem genuinely happy together in these early relationship stages. And hey, if it doesn't work out, he'll still have his beloved, four-legged friends:
