If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are soulmates. How do we know, you ask? Well, the couple just celebrated their four-year anniversary, and their adorable tributes to each other prove they’re still madly in love.
“I’m completely blown away by you,” the Vampire Diaries actor wrote in an emotional Instagram post on Saturday, April 27, 2019. “The bright purity of your smile is infectious to us all. We’ve traveled near and far learning, exploring, tasting, laughing, loving and raising our little one. Watching you in this new role and seeing first hand the true power you possess as a mother, an artist, a businesswoman and a real trailblazing leader into the world of sustainability and art is profound.”
As fans know, the pair got married back in 2015, and they welcomed their first baby together — a girl named Bodhi Soleil Reed Somerhalder — in August of 2017.
“I only wish I was half as bold and together as you,” Ian, 40, continued. “Whether dancing at our wedding, swimming across the seas, cuddling one of our furry creatures, jumping on airplanes around the world, snapping beautiful photos or sitting hand and hand looking at the ocean with a beer: we do it all together. It’s been nothing short of amazing to breathe the air of the bright blue sky all over this planet with you. Thank you for spending this life with me and thank you for all you teach me. Happy 4th Anniversary my human.” Uh, can we find a love like theirs please?
Nikki, 30, took to her Instagram as well, writing, “Four years ago we had no idea what we were getting into. We didn’t know everything we thought we knew about life, or what it means to be a real life partner to somebody else. We were just two kids who were crazy about each other. We didn’t yet know how to grow with someone, but we knew we were in love and we knew we wanted to learn all of these things… together.”
“I still have no idea if we’re doing it right, but I know we both wake up everyday and choose each other,” the actress continued. “We’ve seen a lot, we’ve done a lot, we’ve laughed a lot, we’ve laughed a lot of it off, and we’ve continued to be each other’s biggest cheerleaders, and truest support system. An amazing thing happens when you merge your life and soul with another. Your relationship becomes its own beautiful garden that continues to bloom. Gorgeous little buds pop up when you least expect them too, and sometimes the leaves fall off from over watering. It’s a delicate dance that we will enjoy for the rest of our lives because we both enjoy watching it grow. Love takes on a whole new meaning, it evolves as you do. May this next chapter be filled with curiosity and even more admiration for all the incredible things we still continue to discover. May we continue to ask each other questions and make-out in the backseat. You are the love of my life, the only one who gives me butterflies, and I’m so grateful we get to experience this together. Happy four years married my honey.”
Wow, talk about couple goals.
