The news that Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are engaged came as a surprise to most people, and his co-star ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev was certainly no exception.
Nina, 26, is reportedly shocked that Nikki, also 26, is marrying Ian, 36.
They've only been together six months, but when you know, you know, right? To Nina, she doesn't. She “can’t believe this is all happening so fast.”
Dobrev, sources say, "is devastated over" this turn of events.
She heard the Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed engagement news "from mutual friends and can only shake her head in disbelief. She was shocked."
"She new Ian and Nikki were into each other but she never thought in a million years they would get married this quickly! It’s a tough pill to swallow.”
“Nina will put on a brave face and say all the right things," the insider says of The Vampire Diaries beauty, but deep, down, "inside this is killing her.”
It probably has been for some time. Ian and Nikki have definitely not been shy about showing off their romance, which has been hot and heavy from the start.
This month, we heard whispers that he might be engagement ring shopping, and they shared a cute skiing selfie, but the proposal caught us by surprise too.
Somerhalder recently sent a message to his fans on January 1.
“How I spent my New Year’s Day," he wrote on Instagram.
"In a #tbt way - wow. Week one of 2015. Thank you for giving me so much strength - we’re ready to kick major a** and make a great future starting now.
"Happy 1st week of the New Year- I hope you’re on track with making your future the most sustainable and harmonious one possible… Love, Ian”
Looks like he got off to quite the start indeed.
