“Being a Dad,” Ian captioned the photo. “Morning vet visit with moke before heading to my 1st Day of work for SEASON 6 of The Vampire Diaries!"

Are The Vampire Diaries' co-stars and former couple Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder back together in real life? According to a new report, yes they are!

The 25-year-old beauty has quietly reunited with her on- and off-screen love, insiders say, although they’re doing what they can to keep it discreet.

The costars, who dated from September 2011 to May 2013, are giving it another go, staying out of the public eye and planning a trip to Europe this summer!

After meeting on The Vampire Diaries set, they became fan favorites on the CW and beyond, often sharing their relationship on social media.

No longer. This time, if it's going to work, it will be in private.

As for last night's show and how that impacts things ... watch The Vampire Diaries online if you haven't seen it already, because SPOILERS. Got that?

Alright ... anyway:

These are the kinds of things that happen when you look like Ian Somerhalder.

Moments after giving an Earth Day-inspired speech at USC last week, The Vampire Diaries star was greeted by a student at the university... who felt the need to break into song upon shaking Somerhalder's hand.

Why? Why not, right?!?

In the following video, we see (and hear) the unnamed young woman serenade Somerhalder with a verse from "Natural Woman," leaving Ian with no choice but to join in, give the student a peck on the hand and ask:

Is that all you wanted to say? Yes, it really was.

Would this be our first move if we ever met Ian Somerhalder?

Ian Somerhalder is asking for a lot this year.

The Vampire Diaries hunk turns 35 today, but he doesn't want an expensive gift. Heck, he doesn't want a gift of any kind, not for himself at least.

He simply wants as many fans as possible to donate to his foundation in the same amount as the number of year he's been on Earth.

"I have a goal this year… we can get 1 million people of the 7 billion on the planet to donate $35 dollars," Ian writes on the official Ian Somerhalder Foundation site, adding:

Are co-stars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev back together after breaking up earlier this year? It certainly seems like it, according to new reports!

While we've learned on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 that the universe is on Team Stefan, the actress is still on Team Damon ... on and off the set.

Ian and Nina, who broke up in May after three years of dating, are hooking up again, E! News reports. Specifically, they are "hot and heavy once again."

The future of the gorgeous couple "remains to be seen," but things are looking that way, say insiders close to both Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev.

Dobrev, 24, reportedly rebounded with Dancing with the Stars pro Derek Hough this past summer, but the duo split after only six weeks together.

The duo decided their brief union had "played itself out," a source said, and soon after, she rekindled things with Somerhalder, 34, on the TVD set.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been debated, discussed and speculated about from day one, and the recent turmoil hasn't quelled fans' anticipation.

With actor Charlie Hunnam pulling out of the project almost as soon as he signed on, the million-dollar question once again is who will play Christian Grey.

Among the (fan) favorites? Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries fame!

While Dakota Johnson is still on board as Ana Steele, TVD fans would no doubt wonder what 50 Shades would be like with Ian and co-star Nina Dobrev.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer above imagines just that scenario.

When we next see Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, they will be together, in love and happier than ever.

But what obstacle might get in the way of their future? Well... he's 172 years old and she's only 18, Ian Somerhalder jokes in the following interview.

Seriously, though, folks, there's a "dark underbelly" of Mystic Falls that always seems to cause trouble for Delena, along with most of the couple's close friends. How might that come into play on The Vampire Diaries Season 5?

And how can you help this actor give back to important causes, such as animal rescue and environment protect? He makes a simple request in this exclusive chat with our friends at TV Fanatic. Check it out now:

Ian Somerhalder offered a fan Nina Dobrev's phone number at Comic-Con yesterday in what could best be described as an awkward moment.

  • Ian Somerhalder Waves
  • Nina Dobrev Smiles

The two co-stars appeared at the annual San Diego pop culture extravaganza for a panel Q&A discussion to promote The Vampire Diaries Season 5.

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, who dated in real life but broke up earlier this year, have remained cordial and professional by all accounts.

That doesn't mean things aren't weird at times, however.

At one point, Nina joked in response to a question, "Is there anyone Elena hasn't made out with?" when an audience member shouted "Me!"

Ian replied, "Give me your number. I'll set you up."
