Ian Somerhalder, nicknamed Ian Smolderholder because of his good looks, is an actor, model, and director. He was born on December 8, 1978 and is best known for his roles on Lost and The Vampire Diaries. Somerhalder has received several Teen Choice Awards and People’s Choice Awards for his popularity and work on those two television series.

Ian Somerhalder’s relationship and love life has also been under the microscope since he first came to fame. In 2011, he confirmed that he and his The Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev were dating. The loyal fans loved the famous couple and were very upset when they ended their celebrity relationship in 2013. With Dobrev quitting the series in 2015, viewers have speculated that it is because of the tension the celebrity exes have on set, although both actors says that isn’t true. In July 2014, Somerhalder began dating actress (and friend of Dobrev!) Nikki Reed. They confirmed their celebrity engagement in February 2015 and were married in April 2015.
