Damon Salvatore is alive and well, folks.

Or maybe just alive.

Ian Somerhalder Tweeted a photo this week of our first look at his character on The Vampire Diaries Season 6, leaving many to wonder just why Damon has a chin full of blood.

The veteran vampire concluded Season 5 by holding Bonnie's hand and getting sucked into... well, we have no idea where. The Other Other side, we guess?

New celebrity couple Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed showed off plenty of PDA upon their arrival at last night's Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

While they didn’t walk the red carpet together, The Vampire Diaries star, 35, kissed the Twilight beauty, 26, in full view of the photographers backstage.

Things have been heating up, and publicly, between Reed and Somerhalder in the past month; the two even adopted a horse named Eagle together.

“Proud new dad,” Ian wrote, with a photo of him. “His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy.”

Oh, baby, this is getting serious. And a little awkward.

Forget canoodling at Comic-Con. Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are taking their blossoming romantic relationship to a whole 'nother level.

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.

Despite having only been officially a couple for a short time now, they've made their romance public, and Nikki is already head over heels for Ian!

“Nikki is a major romantic and when she falls in love she falls hard,” the source said.

“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.”

In addition to their love of pets, Ian, 35, and Nikki, 26, share similar lifestyles.

“Nikki is super normal, as far as celebrities go, she’s not at all high maintenance or a major partier and neither is Ian,” the source dished to us.

“They both love staying home and just hanging with friends.”

Now that Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are dating, it's time for Nina Dobrev to move on from her on-again, off-again boyfriend of nearly three years.

This being Hollywood, however, Nina can't just quietly date some dude if she wants to stick it to her ex. She's gotta do what Ian did: hook up with some D-lister from The O.C., and make sure the whole world knows about it.

Nina and Ben McKenzie  - who played Ryan Atwood on the once-buzzed-about Fox series - attended Comic Con together over the weekend and they were spotted getting close outside the San Diego Convention Center.

That may look like a platonic goodbye, but after sharing a few prolonged hugs, Nina and Ben hopped into a cab and took off together.

Were they headed to dinner? A bar? A hotel room? We don't know, but if Nina's goal was to mess with Ian's head, we're guessing it's mission accomplished.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are totally together, and don't seem to mind who knows about it. The two were all over each other at San Diego's Comic-Con.

According to reports, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed were outwardly affectionate Saturday at the hot EW party at Hard Rock Hotel's Float Bar.

"They were so together," the insider said, noting that Somerhalder and Reed "were very hot and heavy," and that "they weren't hiding their PDA at all."

The Vampire Diaries star's ex-girlfriend and co-star Nina Dobrev was also on hand, though they missed any awkward run-ins, according to witnesses.

Awkward it is, whether they physically bumped into each other or not.

Dobrev and Somerhalder used to go on double dates with her friend Reed and then-husband Paul McDonald, who split up just a few months ago.

With Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed dating now, is his ex Nina Dobrev struggling to wrap her head around this budding new vampire romance?

While Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder dated for years in the relative down-low, he's not hiding his relationship with Twilight actress Reed.

"Some one please give Kate a GREAT HOME!!!! PLEASE!" Somerhalder Tweeted with link to Reed's previous post about a homeless dog.

Meanwhile, Ian's Vampire Diaries co-star Dobrev has been using her Instagram as a platform to share some inspirational, albeit cryptic, quotes.

Without mentioning Ian, she first posted a poem reading:

"I give / You take, / I break / You fake / PITY, / I bleed / You dive in deep / Into my blood / As thick as syrup. / Tell me are you / A mosquito?"

Then she took it in a more positive direction, sharing:

When it comes to celebrity gossip, you can read almost anything into cryptic Instagram posts from celebrities to suit the juicy story you want.

In this case, though, it really does make you think.

With Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed dating, all eyes are on the actor's on-off love Nina Dobrev for any signs of a reaction. Her first comment?

Not something you would consider positive.

“I give / You take / I break / You fake PITY / I bleed / You dive in deep / Into my blood / Thick as syrup / Tell me / Are you a mosquito?” Dobrev posts.

It goes without saying that this is not necessarily about Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, neither of whom are mentioned or hinted at in the text.

It's also not an uplifting poem, however.

Considering that The Vampire Diaries cast members dated for three years in relative secrecy, and he's apparently going public with a new girl now?

Could be a lot for a young star to take in.

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.

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed

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.

"None of this could possible with out you! See you at Comic Con, then Teen Choice Awards, then Emmy weekend, then in my dreams. Huge love to you all! Love, Ian."

Awww. Doesn't that make you love him even more? If that's possible?

Not only does the 35-year-old Vampire Diaries star appreciate the many fans who adore him, he's also a renowned philanthropist and animal lover.
