"She accepted with glee. She is madly in love," an insider told Us. Another added: "They were friends before, the groundwork had been laid before. They had always been attracted to each other, but always in another relationship. It may seem quick, but they knew it was right. They believe in the same things. They are dedicated to their work and helping others."

A day after receiving the tasty dish (Reed wrote "Good Luck" in chocolate chips and cutout strawberries in heart shapes!), Somerhalder posted another photo arriving to work.

"Day 1! Coolest parking spot," he wrote. "So humbled by the artisanal skills of this group of people-on every level." The hunky actor took the snapshot from inside his car. On his dashboard, he appeared to have a pic of Reed horseback riding.
