Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are tying the knot and the gorgeous couple isn't shy about sharing their feelings for each other.

They announced their engagement after only six months of dating, but those close to Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder seem to think that the quick engagement isn't a big deal.

"They were friends before, the groundwork had been laid before. They had always been attracted to each other, but always in another relationship. It may seem quick, but they knew it was right. They believe in the same things. They are dedicated to their work and helping others."

That is a great way for Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder to start their life together!

Hollywood's latest (and possibly most attractive) power couple announced that they were dating back in July after Ian Somerhalder ended a lengthy relationship with his Vampire Diaries co-star, Nina Dobrev.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder then moved in together a mere three weeks together. They have already started a fur family!

Spent yesterday at the wildlife waystation, a place that has provided shelter and care for more than 76,000 - doing a photoshoot for @ladygunn magazine in the hopes of raising enough money to keep this place running! I wrote a post on my blog two years ago after visiting for the first time because I was so affected by the beauty that exists in this little pocket of California. There is a large range of animals residing here including all types of big cats (lions, tigers, bobcats, leopards, mountain lions, and even ligresses), chimpanzees, bears, opossums, foxes, llamas, reptiles, wolves, and many types of birds including birds of prey. The Wildlife Waystation also has the largest chimpanzee colony in the western U.S. with almost 50 chimps as permanent residents. These animals may have been former circus performers, members of animal exhibits, baby animals orphaned or abandoned by their parents, or they've come from research labs. Many of the animals were adopted by owners who thought they would make ‘novel’ or ‘cute’ pets until they grew up and became unmanageable. Sadly, in several such cases the animals were declawed or even de-fanged in a cruel attempt to maintain control over the animal. If you have a second please check out their website www.wildlifewaystation.org and contribute in any way possible. I have such a strong connection with these creatures, and the thought of you guys donating enough to help keep them alive makes me feel even more connected to all of you. I'm attaching a link to the post I wrote a few years ago, so you can see what this place is all about, but more importantly how it makes you feel to be a part of it. I am also hosting a fundraiser next month, so keep an eye out for details-I'll post more soon! http://iamnikkireed.com/home/tag/wildlife-waystation/

Ian and Nikki have adopted two horses, Eagle and Millie, a kitten named Sohalia, and they have their dogs, Nietzsche and Enzo.

Nikki Reed's engagement isn't that much of a surprise, actually.

"Ian bought a vintage diamond eternity band for Nikki," a source told Us last month when he was spotted ring shopping at Neil Lane. "It's not a typical engagement ring but actually a wedding band you purchase for when you get married."

Talk about a whirlwind romance! It really seems to be working for them, though. Nikki Reed has finalized her divorce from American Idol alum Paul McDonald and is ready to move on with her life.

Congratulations to Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder! What do you think of their adorable and super-speedy romance?
