"I haven't met two people that were more of soul mates than these guys," Kat said. "They are so absolutely amazing. Everyone loves them and I really can't imagine him with anyone else."
Twilight star Nikki has spoken openly about just how in love the sweet couple are. "He's quite possibly the most amazing man that's ever walked the planet, it's crazy," she said in January, as she confirmed news of the couple's engagement. "I'm so lucky. I love him."
Nikki and Ian started dating in July, following her split from singer-songwriter Paul McDonald in March 2014. News of their engagement at the start of the year came as no surprise to those closest to them.
"They're so happy," a source told E! News at the time. "They were crazy happy from the start. Their families love each other. It just feels right."
