Nikki Reed has confirmed her engagement to Ian Somerhalder

Twilight star Nikki and Ian started dating in July, following her split from ex-husband Paul McDonald in March 2014, and have been inseparable ever since. News of their engagement hasn't come as a surprise to those close to the couple. "They're so happy," a source told E! News. "They were crazy happy from the start. Their families love each other. It just feels right." The sweet couple were first linked in the summer, when they were spotted at a farmers' market. Three weeks later, they moved in together and have since adopted a number of animals together. Nikki was married to American Idol musician Paul from October 2011 until their split in March 2014 – the divorce was finalised on 2 January 2015. Ian, meanwhile, was in a three year relationship with his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev, until May 2013.
