Hollywood’s cutest, most profound and most openly in love couple has a reason to be especially cute, profound and in love today.
That’s because Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed got married two years ago!
Exactly two years ago!
The beloved Twilight Saga star and handsome Vampire Diaries actor exchanged vows on April 27, 2015 in Santa Monica, California.
The celebrities, who had been friends for years but only lovers for a few months, didn’t announce their nuptials ahead of time.
They took fans by complete surprise upon confirming their married status later that same week, while also sharing a handful of beautiful wedding photos online.
To celebrate today’s two-year anniversary, both Somerhalder and Reed hearkened back to their big day, precious picture style, while gushing over their spouses on Instagram.
First, Somerhalder to Reed:
To the most amazing human in the world. Thank you for 2 incredible years of marriage. Thank you for being my best friend, the hardest-working, kindest, most patient and most talented woman I’ve ever known.
To you my love, I say that I know we will have so many of these we can’t even count them. Partly because I’ll be so old… I love you.
And now Reed to Somerhalder:
My guy, my man, my honey, my partner in this life, my better half in every way. At exactly this time two years ago today we walked hand in hand into the next chapter, our chapter, together.
Every day gets better, every moment calling for even more.
Navigating the waters of life with you is the greatest and most rewarding adventure I’ve ever known. We climb, we grow, and we laugh at all of it. Thank you for being exactly who you are, and for loving all of me.
Thank you for your willingness to go even deeper. Until you, I had no idea what could be. Until you…Happy Anniversary.
Few other couples in Hollywood (nay, the universe!) are as open with their feelings as Somerhalder and Reed.
In an interview last October with Modern Luxury, for example, Somerhalder said the following of his wife:
“I live with someone who strives to find happiness and peace in the smallest things – whether it’s sitting for five minutes under a tree or getting out into the country and spending time on our horses or even just going for a walk around the lake or riding a boat.
“I am so blessed that I did, indeed, find this human being that can deal with me and is also the most caring, compassionate person I’ve ever known.
“That’s why I wake up happy.”
Is this constant gushing sort of nauseating? Yes.
But come on! How can you not admire the consistency here? The level of commitment? The poetic nature of this romance?
In that same feature article, Somerhalder said he can’t wait to have kids with Reed.
It wouldn’t surprise us one bit if they are having unprotected sex right at this very moment, hoping to start a family.
Heck, The Vampire Diaries is off the air.
And, according to IMDB, Reed is not working on any movies or TV shows at the moment.
Get to procreating, guys!
“It’s a pretty crazy time and place to bring a child into this turbulent, insane world …. but I really can’t wait to do it,” the gorgeous actor said previously.
And we can’t wait to see what sort of kids Reed and Somerhalder make together.
We have a feeling they will be attractive, loving, compassionate and honest.
