Another dream has come true for 16-year-old Gabby Douglas.

Shortly after the Virginia Beach native became the fourth American to win the women's gymnastics all-around gold medal at the London Olympics August 2, the cast of The CW's Vampire Diaries taped a special video message addressed to the athlete.

The 35-second clip is especially exciting for Douglas, as she recently told Us Weekly that her "celebrity crush is Ian Somerhalder." The actor, 33, plays one-half of the bloodsucking Salvatore brothers.
