Two Vampires are engaged! Yes and that's Rosalie Hale and Damon Salvatore in fiction, and in real life, Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder recently got engaged after six months of dating.

"She accepted with glee," a source tells Us. "She is madly in love."

Another source adds, "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."

In July of last year, the Twilight alum and Vampire Diaries alum started dating and three weeks after, they moved in together in Atlanta, GA. The couple had adopted horses Eagle and Millie and a kitten named Sohalia. Nietzsche and Enzo were two dogs that they have added to the brood.

The 36-year-old actor sparked off engagement rumors when he was seen at a Neil Lane store last month. A close source dished out that Somerhalder bought Reed a diamond eternity band. It is not a typical engagement ring but it is actually a wedding band purchased on the big day itself.

Speculations were further fueled up when the actor posted in Instagram this caption, "How I spent my New Year's Day- in a #tbt way- wow. Week one of 2015. Thank you all for giving me so much strength-we're ready to kick major ass 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..."

As such, this will be Somerhalder's first take on marriage and Reed's second. Reed was previously married to American Idol contestant Paul McDonald and split up on March 2014, but were still good friends after they finalized their divorce this month.

Somerhalder famously dated Nina Dobrev, his co-star in The Vampire Diaries for three years until their split in 2013.
