Rumors started when Ian Somerhalder went ring shopping that he and Nikki Reed are engaged!

According to In Touch magazine, The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, popped the question to Twilight star Nikki Reed over the holidays and will get married this June! He reportedly got down on his knee to ask, and she said yes.

One clue that the rumor may be true is that the publication overheard Ian and Nikki telling friends at the World Dog Awards that “It happened over the holidays.” Ian has been talking about wanting to get married for quite some time, and after starting to date Nikki he hinted that he could be getting married soon because he found “the one” and he’s really happy. He was also seen engagement ring shopping at Neil Lane in Beverly Hills, where they closed the store while he was there.

Another clue is that Nikki was wearing a gorgeous diamond band at the Golden Globes, their first official couple appearance. It didn’t look like the ring that Ian was reportedly looking at, which was a cushion cut diamond, and it wasn’t on her left hand, but according to a source who told In Touch, Nikki said she was wearing it on her right hand to keep things quiet. Then they mentioned the June date, saying they were really excited.

A third clue was the New Year’s Instagram message to his fans saying “How I spent my New Year’s Day – in a #tbt way – wow. Week one of 2015. Thank you for giving me so much strength – we’re ready to kick major a** and make a great future starting now. Happy 1st week of the New Year – I hope you’re on track with making your future the most sustainable and harmonious one possible. Love, Ian.”

A fourth clue is that during the holidays as they were picking out gifts for relatives, Nikki referred to Ian’s mom as her “future mother-in-law”!

Yet another is that a source at saw them at New Stone Age January 4, 2015, looking at engagement rings and reported, “They were absolutely adorable and you could tell they are very much in love. Nikki was pointing out items for Ian and vice versa. They looked at some engagement rings, including a 14K. gold diamond slice halo ring and an 18K. gold green halo diamond ring — both designed by Livin, and an 18K. large chocolate diamond ring by White Cloud.”

If they were looking at rings together, perhaps the rumors are false and he hasn’t popped the question yet. Maybe he’s waiting for Valentine’s Day! Or maybe they just want us fans and the celebrity press to keep guessing.

December 26th was another happy day for Ian and Nikki, as they skied the slopes of Sun Valley. Ian posted a picture of him and Nikki with the message “No filter for this sunny Sun Valley day of awesomeness with my loves, the incredible @iamnikkireed and my brother @nathanaugustreed.” They enjoyed the snow and the fact that her divorce from ex-husband Paul McDonald was finalized.
