On Sunday, the two were spotted engaging in a little smooch fest outside the Shrine Auditorium where the annual Teen Choice Awards took place.
The rumored new couple, who apparently have been dating for a few weeks, chose to not walk the red carpet together. In fact, Somerhalder, 35, posed for photographers by himself while Reed, 26, skipped the shutterbugs altogether.
Last week, the gorgeous pair announced on Instagram that they had adopted a new “baby boy.”
It was a horse. They named him Eagle.
