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.
Other Vampire Diaries stars who participate in the video include Nina Dobrev, 23, Paul Wesley, 30, Claire Holt, 24, and Michael Trevino, 27. After congratulating her and wishing her luck, Somehalder even blows Douglas a kiss!
“We’d like to congratulate you and the U.S. Women’s team on your gold medal! Go Team USA!” Somerhalder tweeted August 2.
Somerhalder’s costar and girlfriend, Dobrev, added: “Congrats Gabby! You killed it at the Olympics — gold medal! Keep smiling girl!”
