Things appear to be going very well with the happy couple, and the The Vampire Diaries actor thought he'd let the world know just how he feels about his new lady. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, he posted an adorable picture of himself and Reed alongside their beloved dogs.
In the lengthy caption, Somerhalder paid tribute to the Twilight star, saying she "amazes" him. The pair first revealed their romance in July when they were spotted looking super cozy at a Los Angeles, California, farmers' market.
Somerhalder's full caption read: "A day with 3 of the most beautiful ladies in the universe... Wow smiling is such a beautiful part of the human experience-I highly recommend it. Congrats to our little Neitczhe (sic) here-1 year ago today, to the minute, you brought 5 beautiful puppies into this world-thank you for your amazing contribution to all of our lives," he began.
"However, welcome to the wonderful world of being spayed-The world does not need any more puppies, we kill millions and millions per year. These two beautiful creatures right here in this photo or (sic) highly intelligent, highly emotional and capable of more love than you can you can (sic) ever imagine."
"The ones that are in shelters are the same-let's adopt them. @iamnikkireed your recent work with Gilt benefiting the @aspca is truly, truky (sic) extraordinary. Thank you for giving so much of your life and for being a strong voice for those whom can speak. My hat is off to you. You amaze me. Love, Ian"
Reed recently designed a line of dog collars and leashes with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the ASPCA.
If this cute photo and even cuter caption are anything to go by, we have to assume Somerhalder and Reed are officially dating, and we hope their relationship continues to blossom (even though we are secretly sad that Somerhalder is officially off the market)!
