Their romance is brand new, but love is totes in the air for Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, according to a source close to the sexy vampire couple.

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.”

Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed hit a Comic-Con after party on July 26, and he was by her side at the Young Hollywood Awards the next day - in both cases affectionately.

Only one thing is hanging over the budding romance, insiders say.

His ex, Nina Dobrev, 25, is also his co-star on The Vampire Diaries, and also Nikki's friend. They used to date with Reed and her ex-husband Paul McDonald.

As such, the couple is “waiting for Nina’s blessing.”

“It’s a little awkward right now for them because they have the same friend circle as Nina and no one is quite sure how to react,” a source revealed.

If nothing else, they're considering Nina Dobrev's feelings, and Ian and Nikki seem to have formed a strong relationship, so hopefully it all works out for everyone.
