Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed: MARRIED!!!!!

by at .

The engagement is over between Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed.

And the marriage has begun!!!

In unexpected news, The Vampire Diaries star and the former Twilight Saga beauty exchanged vows on Sunday evening in Santa Monica, insiders have confirmed to E! News.

Little is known about the specific location or the guests on hand, but Somerhalder Tweeted it was the “most beautiful morning ever” yesterday.

And we can confirm that the couple asked for donations to an animal rescue charity in lieu of gifts. Which is totally something Somerhalder and Reed would do.

The stars began dating last summer and got engaged about four months ago.

They have been very open about their romance, often posing for silly pictures together in public and positively gushing about their significant other in various interviews.

Reed, for instance, referred to Somerhalder as "the most thoughtful human being on the planet" in an interview with E! awhile back, while Ian has defended Reed against haters by detailing the "magical" qualities of his fiancee.

Somerhalder and Reed have also been in the news recently for reasons beyond their control: many assume that Nina Dobrev quit The Vampire Diaries due to Reed and the overall difficulty of working with her engaged ex-boyfriend.

Now that Somerhalder is Dobrev's married ex-boyfriend, we'd imagine she's extra happy to be leaving Mystic Falls.

But that's just speculation. Here's what we know for certain: Somerhalder and Reed are going to be so happy together and we are so happy for them!
