Ian and Nikki are known to be animal lovers. Last July, the 26-year-old actress asked her fans on social media to adopt an adorable dog. The TVD star showed support by sharing Reed's message to his fans and followers.
According to an exclusive Us Weekly report, Ian and Nikki officially became an item last July after the two were spotted and photographed getting cozy at a Farmers market in Los Angeles. "[They are] smitten with each other and love spending time together," an unnamed insider revealed.
Another unnamed source revealed to E!News that the new couple continued with their PDA or public display of affection at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con. "They were so together," the source shared.
Ian and Nikki are both moving on from their failed relationship in the past. The CW actor ended his romantic relationship with "Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev in 2013 while the "Twilight" actress, who married singer and songwriter Paul McDonald in 2011, filed for divorce in May 2014 citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind their split.
As for Nina Dobrev, the 25-year-old brunette beauty does not seem to mind that her ex-boyfriend is now dating her friend. What caught the attention of the TVD star is the numerous men speculated to be her new boyfriend.
"Apparently I have SOOOO many boyfriends. Here's four more. I'm so busy. #TabloidSillyness," Dobrev posted on her Twitter account @ninadobrev on Monday, Aug. 4, as a caption to a shared image from her WhoSay account. Click HERE to see photo.
In the shared image, actors Steven R McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert), Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan), Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) and Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman) were all smiles while standing behind Nina Dobrev. At the moment, an unnamed insider claimed that Nina Dobrev loves her single life. "She is definitely enjoying herself right now," the insider revealed.
