IAN SOMERHALDER & NIKKI REED ADOPT A HORSE & IT COULD ONLY MEAN ONE THING — PHOTO
Before you dissolve into a puddle of tears or rush out to buy the couple any Dracula-themed onesies (if such a thing exists), you might want to take a look at their son, Eagle, first, who Somerhalder so helpfully splashed across his Instagram page for all the world to “ooh” and “ahh” (and SOB) at.
The Vampire Diaries actor captioned the snap, ”Proud new dad… What amazing creatures they are. Wow. His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy.”
That’s right. After only a few weeks of dating, these two decided the best way to solidify their fledgling relationship was adopting a 1,000 lb. horse. This horse can only mean one thing: this new relationship is getting serious. Giant horse amounts of serious. Granted, the pair are big animal advocates, and Reed actually happens to be starring in upcoming film The Sunday Horse about equestrian Debi Walden, so maybe this is just an experience in method acting? All we know is that now they have the perfect tool to help them literally ride off into the sunset together, and that tonight may or may not be spent watching a Vampire Diaries marathon while crying into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. Whatever, guys.
