So… we're guessing Nikkian is the real deal now. You know, Nikkian, the not-at-all-awkward relationship between Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed. (We say it like that because the 35-year-old actor dated his co-star from The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev, for years, still works with her on the show, plus she's really close with the 26-year-old recently-separated-from-her-husband Twilight actress.) Not only do the two, like, hold hands in public and everything, but they've ADOPTED A BABY BOY!

This is not a joke, guys. Ian Instagrammed about the whole matter himself. He writes, "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." Here's a picture of the new addition to the Somereed family:

Yes, it's a horse, but it's THEIR horse. Considering Ian and Nina had a cat together, this seems like a HUGE step, especially since Nikki only filed for divorce from her American Idol husband, Paul McDonald, this past May. WDYT of Nikkian? Are you still holding out hope for Nian? Let's talk about it in the comments!
