The Internet is abuzz with talk that "The Vampire Diaries" actor Ian Somerhalder might be getting ready to pop the question to his "Twilight" actress girlfriend Nikki Reed.

The news garnered traction after several media reports stated that Somerhalder was spotted shopping at Neil Lane, which is iconic for its engagement rings. Although Somerhalder is yet to confirm the news, a source told E! News that the actor was in the store for about an hour. But it is not immediately known if he bought anything.

If Somerhalder does pop the question, it won't be a big surprise as the two have been gushing about each other all over their social networking platforms. A HollywoodLife source even said that Somerhalder feels Reed could be the one for him.

"Ian is in love with Nikki and the life they have, and he wants to share his love because he is not ashamed of the greatness that his life is experiencing with her in it," the source said, adding that his love for Reed is completely different from what he felt for his "Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev.

"His relationship with Nina was what it was — it lasted the amount of time it was meant to last — but with Nikki, he feels like he has found the one," the source added.

Dobrev and Somerhalder dated for a few years before going their separate ways, but this hasn't stopped their fandom from expressing a desire to see them together.

It is not immediately known how Dobrev will react to the news of Somerhalder's engagement if and when it happens. But the actors appear to have moved on in their lives, and Dobrev is sure to be happy that Somerhalder has finally found his ideal partner.
