While at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which he attended with Reed, Somerhalder addressed his fun trips to the farmers market and life in general now that he has a new girlfriend.
When asked by E! News about his frequent healthy shopping trips with Reed, Somerhalder responded with, “LIfe is good.” The 35-year-old Lost star also addressed his fans and how they’ve embraced his new relationship.
“There’s a lot of support and love from a lot of people,” Somerhalder said. “I couldn’t be happier if I tried.”
Somerhalder and Reed first started the love rumor mill when they were seen at a farmers market in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. The cute couple was then spotted going for runs together and grabbing coffee before the Teen Choice Awards. The super-fit duo was seen shopping for healthy garb again, while stealing hugs and various moments of PDA from each other, on Sunday, Aug. 17 at Studio City, California.
The night before, during Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys, Somerhalder actually got to meet Reed’s dad, Seth, who was nominated for his work on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Meanwhile, the environmentally concerned actor was nominated for his own project, Years of Living Dangerously, which is a climate change docuseries.
Making good on his eco-friendly beliefs, Somerhalder was sure to recycle a glass jar when he picked up some fresh juice while on his recent farmers market visit with Reed. The hunky Louisiana native is also well known for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which he set up himself to raise awareness of environmental issues.
