Nikki Reed Confirms Engagement, Calls Ian Somerhalder ‘The Most Amazing Man’

Your hearts can officially break (or melt) now: Nikki Reed has confirmed what we already know.

“He’s so beautiful inside and out,” the newly engaged actress told Us Weekly of Ian Somerhalder over the weekend.

The gush-fest, which happened at the Catdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, marks the first time Reed has spoken about her beloved fiancé since rumors of their engagement surfaced earlier this month.

“He’s quite possibly the most amazing man that’s ever walked the planet, it’s crazy,” the 26-year-old bride-to-be added. “I’m so lucky, I love him.”

Reed and Somerhalder, 36, have been together since July 2014. They’ve since become animal parents nine times. Here are just two of the four dogs the pair own. (They also have two horses and three kitties).

This will be the second marriage for Reed, who finalized her divorce from Paul McDonald on Jan. 2. Somerhalder was previously involved with his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev.
