It was love at first sight for Ian Somerhalder and his wife, Nikki Reed. The Vampire Diaries star, 37, gushed to Modern Luxury magazine about starting a family with the Twilight actress one day.

“The second we were around each other, and not [dating] other people, we just knew. Oh, I will one day have amazing children with my beautiful wife. Absolutely, definitely,” he told the publication. “I live with someone who strives to find happiness and peace in the smallest things – whether it’s sitting for five minutes under a tree or getting out into the country and spending time on our horses or even just going for a walk around the lake or riding a boat.”

Somerhalder, who tied the knot with Reed in April 2015, couldn’t be more smitten with his 28-year-old wife.

“I am so blessed that I did, indeed, find this human being that can deal with me and is also the most caring, compassionate person I’ve ever known,” he added of the Sleepy Hollow star, who like the Lost alum, is a huge animal lover. “That’s why I wake up happy.”

Since getting married last year, the two have been passionately working together on various charities, including his Ian Somerhalder foundation.

“My goal and Nikki’s goal in life is literally — my goal in particular — is to build for-profit entities that will literally feed our necessary non-profit initiatives till the end of time,” Somerhalder told Us Weekly of their plans back in July 2015. “We definitely share that passion together in a very huge way.”
