Nikki Reed, Ian Somerhalder

GADE/AKM-GSI

Nikki Reed is looking forward to growing old with Ian Somerhalder.

The 27-year-old actress has penned the most heartwarming—and belated—public tribute to her new husband and The Vampire Diaries star for his 37th birthday.

"You are my every dream brought to life," she wrote on Instagram on Friday, three days later, alongside a photo showing his birthday, two lovebirds and the words "I love you." "With our hands pressed together I know that we will always find our way home."

"You are a gift to this world, a teacher of light and a student of love," she said. "You radiate warmth in vibrant reds and deep orange hues. I often wonder what it would be like to see autumn arrive through your eyes. Here is to the next 65 years together, holding hands, strolling through the woods, still learning, still listening. Happy happy birthday...I love you."

Reed and Somerhalder wed in April after dating for about nine months. They got engaged almost four months after they started seeing each other.
