It's official and adorable: Domerhalder is a go!

A month after Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev were spotted vacationing together in Paris, the CW co-stars showed up on the red carpet of the MuchMusic Video Awards last night... hand-in-hand!

"Who am I most excited to see tonight?" Somerhalder said prior to the event. "Nina Dobrev!"

These Vampire Diaries stars have actually been dating for months (a friend tells Us Weekly they are the "real deal"), but have impressively managed to mostly keep the relationship a secret.

No longer, however. With their on-screen characters locking lips to close season two, perhaps Ian and Nina are preparing viewers for a major taste of Delena on season three.

Overshadowed by a certain other pairing of a fake vampire and his lady love, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have managed to keep their relationship relatively quiet.

But the actor who makes women squeal on The Vampire Diaries and the actress who finally got to kiss him on the season two finale were spotted in Paris this week - arm in arm, strolling alongside their mothers. AWWWW!

We can't lie: THG has a crush on Ian Somerhalder. And it isn't simply because this is one Sexy Beast.

It's also because the Louisiana native is taking an active role in helping to clean up the Gulf Coast and is stirring up Emmy talk these days with his performance on The Vampire Diaries. Really, he is!

Of course, it doesn't hurt that he looks like this. In honor of the actor's 32nd birthday, we've posted the following photo montage and we're asking readers to send in their best wishes... if they can stop drooling for a few moments, that is.

You've really gotta love Ian Somerhalder.

And not just for his smile, or body, or snarky one-liners on The Vampire Diaries.

This actor simply comes across laid back and humorous (not to mention charitable). Most recent case in point: Somerhalder appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and accidentally revealed where he lives in Los Angeles. He also made some pizza for the host, as seen here...

It was hotter than usual in Miami over the weekend, but Florida's balmy weather was not responsible for this change in temperature.

At least not for the few hours on Saturday that Vampire Diaries stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley signed autographs for fans at a mall in the area.

As part of a Hot Topic-sponsored tour that also took them to Chicago and Dallas, the studly fake vampires answered questions, posed for pictures and made it clear which team they are playing for...

The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder recently spoke to TV Fanatic about the ongoing recovery efforts in his native Louisiana and, of course, his hit CW series.

On where things stand in the Gulf: "It’s coming along. Everyone’s been so helpful. I think BP’s going to make it right. I know that the nurseries that we thought had been destroyed haven’t been destroyed, the marshes weren’t destroyed, which is great."

Sexiest Beast

"With a lot of help from man, I think Mother Nature [will] bounce back. There’s going to be a lot of side effects. It’s too early to know. What we’re seeing right now, we have no idea what’s lurking under the surface or what’s going to happen next year."

On how people can get involved: "I am putting together a foundation that’s going to work in conjunction with a bunch of other foundations that will be very, very focused on going into that region, and helping. A great deal."

"The National Wildlife Federation, the RDC, are involved in what’s going on. Right now, there needs to be a solid go-to place in order to help, and that’s what I’m literally working on as we speak. I’m not even kidding. Keep up and support these people."

Ian Somerhalder is one sexy beast. Correction:

Ian Somerhalder is THE Sexy Beast.

In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, the magazine asks readers to sound off on various Hollywood creatures. When over 1.5 million votes were tallied - between actors/actresses that have played vampires, werewolves and other supernatural beings - Somerhalder beat out Robert Pattinson by just 4,000 votes.

Naturally, this begs the question: did EW readers get it right? Do THG readers agree with their assessment? Is The Vampire Diaries star really the sexiest pretend beast in all the land?

Our latest Teen Choice Awards style showdown may be a bloodbath.

Arm-in-arm with co-star Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder (left) and Paul Wesley are a couple of choice TV hunks if we've ever seen them.

Not just 'cause vampires are all the rage, either. They're handsome.

The Vampire Diaries spoilers for the CW show's second season focus on Tyler and werewolf mythology, and how Elena's blood-sucking doppelganger Katherine will impact her relationship with Stefan (and possibly Damon).

But what we're focused on here is much simpler: Which hunk was better dressed at last night's awards show? Tell us by voting in our survey below!

On The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder play Damon Salvatore, an often-scary blood sucker.

But in real life, the actor isn't frightened by garlic or stakes to the heart - he's simply taken aback by the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf.

Vampire Diaries Threesome

A native of Louisiana, Somerhalder was front and center at the CNN telethon that raised $1.8 million this week. He's also devoted the last few weeks to doing all he can to call attention to this region and this catastrophe.

"You know when something bad happens in your life, or something goes wrong - that weird kind of really uneasy feeling you have in the pit of your stomach? I've had that for two months," he told Zap2It, adding:

"Basically, the entire area is shut down. Everyone from the waitress who serves you breakfast to the guy who owns the charter boat to the shrimpers - they all literally rely on the ocean to keep their industry going... Think about how frightening it is when you suddenly, though no fault of your own, can't feed your children or pay your mortgage."

Somerhalder is especially outraged over how and why this accident took place.

"All of this happened due to human error - the error is cutting corners, saving money at the expense of safety measures, and a nonexistent regulatory commission," he said. "The [U.S. Minerals Management Service] gets royalties from the oil industry. How is that any kind of regulatory body?"

It's a question the admistration most definitely has to answer, as many believe this is the time to enact a serious climate change bill and convince America that government can - nay, must! - play an important role in the free market.

Concluded Ian, who we greatly admire for putting himself out there in this manner:

"It's time to change, and I think this disaster is the game changer. It feels like this is one of those catastrophic events that truly changes the way that we think."
