Ian Somerhalder has some sneaky co-stars. His fellow “Vampire Diaries” actors recently posted a few adorable candid photos of Somerhalder and his wife Nikki Reed.
Matt Davis, who plays Alaric on the CW drama, posted a picture of Sunday’s trip to a lake. He took a photo of Somerhalder and Reed sharing a kiss in their bathing suits. In the caption of the black and white shot, Davis called the couple “an inspiration.”
It seems the couple, who were married in April 2015, inspire many of their friends. Just a few weeks ago, Michael Malarkey, who plays Enzo, couldn’t help snapping a photo of the actors. He only posted it with a heart emoji, but Somerhalder reposted it with a sweet message for his wife.
“Thanks brother man for snapping this awesome symbolic shot of my better half and me. Wow, 3rd comic con with this human! My ‘Wifey’ aka my bad--- life partner,” Somerhalder wrote. “Thanks for starting our production company with me and making all of my crazy dreams a reality. I can't wait to produce some powerful and beautiful art with you which will one day be debuted right here.”
It sounds like Somerhalder and Reed’s marriage is setting some relationship goals for the “TVD” cast. Co-star Kat Graham, who plays Bonnie, also gushed about the husband and wife recently. “Why I think they’re so perfect is because of their philanthropy,” Graham told People at the Teen Choice Awards last month. “They have the same values when it comes to people, how you treat people, how you treat animals, how you treat the world, the environment.”
Somerhalder will have more time to work with Reed on both their production company and charity efforts after he puts Damon’s fangs away. “The Vampire Diaries” Season 8, which premieres Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW, will be the final season of the drama.
