She can't help but gush! Actress Nikki Reed was excited to dish about her hunky new fiance Ian Somerhalder at the Third Annual Catdance Film Festival sponsored by FreshStep on Saturday, Jan. 24 at the SkyLodge in Park City, Utah. 

"He's so beautiful inside and out!" she told Us, confirming her engagement for the first time. "He's quite possibly the most amazing man that's ever walked the planet, it's crazy. I'm so lucky, I love him."

While the Twilight star, 26, wouldn't reveal any details from her wedding planning, she did talk about her nine pets. The couple shares four dogs, three cats, and two horses. 

"We love our animals so much," the actress said. "Since the time I could walk, I was doing all these fosters, rehabs, and rescues. My mom and I have done this together, and it was natural to continue it." 

Vampire Diaries star Somerhalder, 36, proposed to last week Reed after six months of dating.
