Actor Ian Somerhalder is only recently single but according to his social media accounts, he may soon be walking down the aisle.
The 34-year-old “Vampire Diaries” star shockingly responded to one fan's marriage proposal on Instagram this past weekend, publicly sharing his approval on Twitter Saturday. “How about let’s get married @iansomerhalder. Sorry my proposal isn’t more romantic,” wrote a fan with the username emanhoar24. Somerhalder responded calling the request flattering. “I think it's plenty romantic. Proposal on Instagram is more than sufficient,” he said.

The proposal comes just shy of four months since Somerhalder split from his girlfriend of three years and longtime “Vampire Diaries” co-star, Nina Dobrev, 24. The break up was confirmed in June by a mutual friend of the couple, “Teen Wolf” star Colton Haynes. During an interview with Entertainmentwise, the 25-year-old actor revealed that despite the split, he believed the pair would work hard to be cordial on set. “I don’t think it would be awkward for them. They’re really well-rounded people,” said Haynes. “They have their own things going on, and I think that they can get past the troubles. They’ll be fine.”
Somerhalder previously discussed the topic of marriage in July with Entertainmentwise, claiming that he already feels married to the cast of the CW program. “Being on a television show is sort of like a marriage,” he said during a hiatus from filming the popular supernatural series. “Lovers need space in their togetherness, as actors need space from their television shows, so it’s a nice little bit of a separation,” he said.
Season five of “The Vampire Diaries” is currently filming in Atlanta. The cast most recently made an appearance at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, Calif., in July.
