Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed were recently spotted on a lunch date. The lovebirds were seen in coordinated looks as they walked out of a sprawling restaurant in Brentwood, California.

Both sported heavy-duty leather jackets and wide rimmed hats. Reed paired her rugged look with a grey skirt and pair of brown boots, whereas Somerhalder kept it chic in a pair of blue jeans and black leather shoes. At one point "The Vampire Diaries" actor was seen holding Reed's purse as the latter tried to hide her face behind the hat. The 26-year-old actress also held a shirt over her left hand and appeared to hide it.

Reed's way of camouflaging her left hand has led to speculation that she was trying to hide her engagement ring. There is a major buzz that she and Somerhalder are engaged, as per Perez Hilton.

The duo was recently seen jewellery shopping at Neil Lane during the Christmas break. They were also seen browsing for jewellery at New Stone, according to Daily Mail. Though there is no confirmation that the couple has gotten engaged, the duo seems to be going strong and has never shied away from indulging in PDA.

"They are having a great time with one another," a source said about the couple to ENews, adding, "They are still crazy for each other."

Somerhalder was previously in a relationship with his "The Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev. They dated each other for a while before calling it quits. The reason for the couple's break-up is not known.

While they are not a real life couple anymore, Somerhalder and Dobrev are fan favourites. They recently won the best couple award at the People's Choice Awards and this is one of the many times that they have taken the trophy home for sharing the best onscreen chemistry.
