Ian Somerhalder Says He ‘Couldn’t Be Happier’ Dating Nikki Reed, So Now We Cry

Aw, shucks.

Those of you who were still holding on to hope that Ian Somerhalder might get back with Nina Dobrev (or you) in the near future might want to look away, because the actor did everything but publicly propose to Nikki Reed at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday night.

E! News took on the task of asking the “Vampire Diaries” star about his trips to the farmer’s market with a “special girl” — Somerhalder and Reed have been snapped by paps during many a healthy eating outing as of late — and the actor coyly admitted that things are currently going prettttty well with his latest vampire girlfriend.

“Life is good,” he said. “There’s a lot of support and love from a lot of people. I couldn’t be happier if I tried.”

Now, this might seem like a jump to conclusions if Reed, who hasn’t appeared on television since 2007, wasn’t also walking the carpet. (And if, you know, they hadn’t been seen together in public about a zillion times before then.)

Check out (separate) shots of the couple at the Emmys below, as well as a mandatory picture of a kitten because this news is terrible and the only thing that will help is a kitten.
