With earlier reports of spotting Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed looking at engagement rings, rumor has it that the two are already engaged! How true is it? How is Nina Dobrev taking it?

After just six months of dating, “The Vampire Diaries” hunk has apparently popped the question to the “Twilight” star. According to a source of In Touch, the engagement “happened over the holidays.” The source overheard the couple as they were chatting with their friends at last weekend’s World Dog Awards.

At the 2015 Golden Globes, Reed was spotted wearing a ring on her right hand. Considering engagement and wedding rings are usually worn on the left hand, this was taken lightly by the onlookers. For the past month, the 26-year-old actress had been wearing a couple of diamond bands on her right ring finger. It turns out that Reed was trying to keep the engagement quiet by wearing the rings on her right hand. When asked to comment on this, reps from either party have not yet commented.

Another source detailed that the couple was planning a June wedding date and that they were really excited about it.

With just six months of dating, it has surely been a whirlwind romance for the couple. Earlier this month, TMZ revealed that Reed’s divorce from Paul McDonald had already been finalized. In March 2014, Reed announced that they already separated and had been living in different homes for the past six months. The divorce was filed in May. The couple got married in October 2011 after meeting just seven months prior. Reed then started dating Somerhalder in July 2014, more than a year from his split with “The Vampire Diaries” co-star Nina Dobrev.

Dobrev and Somerhalder broke up after three years of dating. While they remain to be on good terms and colleagues, the only time things started getting awkward between them was when Somerhalder started dating Dobrev’s friend. Shortly, he started seeing Reed, and things got quickly pretty serious between them. After just a few months of dating, Reed had already told her friends that they were already planning on getting married. Currently, they live together with their pets. The couple even shares a horse and a cat together.

At the 2015 Golden Globes after-party, Dobrev was reportedly spotted trying to avoid the couple. She stayed on the opposite side of the party and kept surrounded by friends, Lea Michele and Jessica Szohr.
