Ian Somerhalder Planning a “Great Future” With Nikki Reed in 2015: Photo

Are wedding bells on the horizon? Ian Somerhalder is ready for 2015 — as long as he has girlfriend Nikki Reed by his side. The actor gushed about the Twilight alum via Instagram on Thursday, Jan. 8.

"How I spent my New Year's Day- in a #tbt way- wow. Week one of 2015," the 36-year-old wrote. "Thank you all for giving me so much strength-we're ready to kick major ass and make a great future starting now. Happy 1st week of the New Year- I hope you're on track with making your future the most sustainable and harmonious one possible…"

In addition to the upbeat message, the Vampire Diaries actor included a sweet (and gorgeous!) photo of the couple. He and Reed bent down for a selfie with their two pups Nietzsche and Enzo on what appeared to be a hiking trail.

Reed, 26, is also starting off 2015 with a clean slate. Earlier this month, she finalized her divorce from American Idol season 10 alum Paul McDonald. The pair — who remain amicable, even recording music together — announced their split in March 2014 after nearly three years of marriage.
