You first got to know him as Boone Carlyle on Lost, and now you love him as the impulsive vampire anti-hero of The Vampire Diaries, Damon Salvatore! Birthday boy Ian Somerhalder (who is 33 today!) is one of our favorite bad boys on TV, but we can’t help adoring how sweet he is in real life!

Ian has been tweeting a lot lately about how amazing this past year has been for him:

@iansomerhalder Wow, December 1st 2011.What a year.What a year.What a year. I’m 33 in 7 days. A birthday project is in order :) Thank you so very much for it all

@iansomerhalder A very amazing thing just happened to me. Cant wait to share, as It involves all of you. I fricking love you people.This one is good, for us all

@iansomerhalder Good night beautiful world. Just reflecting in the quiet dark flicker of candle fighting to stay lit – what a year. Thank you for these thoughts

We’re sure his real-life relationship with on-screen love interest Nina Dobrev helped make this such a great year for Ian! Today’s his 33rd birthday, and we hope the next year is just as happy and successful!

Be sure to leave Ian a birthday wish in the comments below and check out our gallery of all the hotties on The Vampire Diaries!
