Safe to say Ian Somerhalder doesn't have any regrets after tying the knot with wife Nikki Reed just over two months ago. 

"My wife. The most beautiful human being in the world," the 36-year-old actor told E! News when asked to share the sexiest thing he first sees when he wakes up in the morning. 

"I'm the luckiest man on the planet," the smitten Vampire Diaries stud added. 

E! News caught up with Somerhalder at The Grove in Los Angeles last week for the Dawn Wildlife Initiative, "We All Love Wildlife" video series, where the erstwhile Lost star also opened up about he and his wife's shared passion for animal rescue.

"There's a lot of passion in our house. Nikki's incredible," the TV star gushed. "She's turned the house into an animal rescue for years—that's what she's done. Selflessly, literally giving her resources and her home and her family's time and her time to saving animals in need. It's actually quite extraordinary. We actually have nine animals at home—four dogs, three cats and two horses."
