Ian Somerhalder, the star of "The Vampire Diaries", dated his former co-star Nina Dobrev a long time ago, but the fans are not ready to forget the coupling yet. In fact, they keep trying to get them back together, with paparazzi also claiming that are back together, forcing Ian to defend his marriage to Nikki Reed over and over again.

Ian and Nikki have been married for nine months, and in the short span, they have been fictionally divorced by the media way too many times, and dumping the responsibility of the break-up of Nina Dobrev, who left "TVD" a few of months back.

However, putting an end to all those baseless rumours, Ian told People Magazine in an interview that he experienced sheer happiness every single day because he gets to wake up with Nikki Reed.

"We're under kitties and dogs, and it's just pure bliss," he elaborated on their happy marriage. Ian also posted a photo from the wedding day on his Instagram page to mark their nine-month anniversary, captioning it, "9 months of amazing marriage to this amazing human. Happy 9 months my one and only human-I can't wait for the rest. So many many many more to come and fill with memories. I love you".

In a photo shared by Nikki Reed, the couple is holding each other with a message for Dorian Murray, an 8-year-old boy who is battling a rare type of cancer. His last wish is to become "as famous as I can", and honouring that, Nikki is holding a placard that reads, "You're Famous in our home!!! #DSTRONG Stay strong we love you <3".
