Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder adopt kitten


Nikki Reed and boyfriend Ian Somerhalder have a new addition to their family.

The 26-year-old actress has been dating the Vampire Diaries star since July. Their relationship seems to be going from strength to strength as they have adopted a pet together. The Twilight beauty was quick to post a picture of the kitten on her Instagram account. “Went to the animal shelter today to give some love to the babies living in cages and don't have homes and ended up adopting the little girl!" she wrote alongside the photograph."What should we name her?"

The image shows her snuggling up to the little grey feline, who looked sleepy with its eyes shut.

It’s not the first animal that the couple have shared together. In August, Ian, shared a photograph of his new horse Eagle.

“Proud new dad... What amazing creatures they are. Wow. His name is Eagle. Thank you @iamnikkireed for snapping this special moment, with our big baby boy,” he wrote on his Instagram page alongside the photograph of him hugging a brown colt.

Despite the couple being relatively coy about their relationship other than when animals are involved, a source recently revealed that the actress has fallen hard for the handsome 35-year-old.

“They are having a great time with one another," a source told E! News. "They are still crazy for each other."

The media has taken a huge interest in their romance since Ian used to date Nikki’s close friend - and his co-star - Nina Dobrev until 2013. Meanwhile Nikki was previously married to singer-songwriter Paul McDonald from 2011 but their union ended earlier this year after it was revealed they had lived apart for six months.
