Vampires of the world unite: Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are engaged!

Oh yes. After dating for only six months, The Vampire Diaries leading man and the Twilight hottie – who have been friends for years – are set to tie the knot.

“They’re so happy,” a source says. “They were crazy happy from the start.”

“Their families love each other … It just feels really right all around.”

Not to Somerhalder’s Vampire Diaries co-star and formerly his girlfriend of three years. Supposedly, Nina Dobrev is devastated by the sudden engagement.

Reed and her then-husband Paul McDonald were friends with Somerhalder and Dobrev, likely making the coupling awkward for the latter to accept.

In any case, Ian and Nikki have been smitten from the beginning.

Since getting together in July, they’ve adopted several animals together, including a horse named Eagle, and he recently gushed about Nikki on Instagram.

Responding to critics of his new romance, he referred to Reed as both “amazing and magical” and urged fans to be happy for him if they really care about him.

He’s on Cloud Nine right now, there’s no doubt about it.
