True Ian Somerhalder Married Nikki ReedAfter news broke that Nina Dobrev was leaving Vampire Diaries, fans immediately speculated that the actress' exit from the hit show had something to do with her ex-boyfriend and co-star Ian Somerhalder's new marriage to Nikki Reed. But Dobrev, who was on VD for six years, slammed those rumors, telling E! that she's happy for the duo. "I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship. I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now." "When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful,” the 26-year-old gushed to E! host Maria Menounos. “They look happy and I am happy, and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that…Of course, we're on a teen drama show, everyone's going to look for drama…I just ignore it." Nikki and Ian tied the knot in a beautiful Malibu wedding last month. The ceremony, which took place in Topanga Canyon, was that of a whimsical one as Nikki looked striking in an elegant gown with lace sleeves, while Ian looked more handsome than ever in an all-white suit. Somerhalder let the cat out of the bag about his excitement over his big day when he Tweeted on the morning of his nuptials, “Most beautiful morning ever.” After a very publicized breakup between Ian and Nina, the 36-year-old hunk was first spotted with his new girl Nikki last July, and it wasn’t long before the duo officially came out as a couple, after they were seen packing on the PDA at Comic-Con. And just like that, the power couple got engaged in January. We're happy Nina is taking the high road!
