According to Nikki and Ian and this handy timeline we created, it looks like it heads almost exploded when the vampire duo officially became a couple and made Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore a thing in real life.
They were on and off for three years until officially calling it quits at the end of 2013, breaking the hearts of vampires, werewolves and hybrids everywhere.
I mean, let’s be real – Nikki and Ian got engaged in January after only six months of dating, so is them getting married now really that much of a stretch?
They could probably sense that the interest in their relationship was waning, and thus, wanted to get married to take advantage of the leftover buzz from The Vampire Diaries.
You don't get those first 30 days back, and we want to be fully present." Sorry, Instagram followers!
A source tells US Weekly, Technically speaking, Nikki had moved into Ian’s apartment in Georgia together, hence the increased awkwardness among the cast members on The Vampire Diaries set.
The former Boone and Shannon clearly don't have much bad blood left over from their split. Kate Bosworth and Ian Somerhalder starred together on the Dawson’s Creek spin-off Young Americans but didn’t start dating until 2002 when they reunited for the Bret Easton Ellis novel adaption The Rules of Attraction.
And it's no wonder that it was easy for Ian to hang with his former ex — after all, he's pretty skilled in the art of dating, and breaking up with co-stars. Like the Dawson’s Creek spin-off, their relationship was short-lived.
She may have played the manipulative Shannon on Lost, but in real life, this girl seems like a total sweetheart.
She and Ian dated after they were killed off on the hit series (there really should be some sort of support group for dead Lost-ers).
Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder have been married after less than a year of dating.
