Just two days after the 26-year-old Twilight star and the 35-year-old Vampire Diaries hunk were spotted getting cozy at a farmer's market in L.A., a source tells E! News that the duo are indeed heating up.
"[Nikki and Ian are] smitten with each other and love spending time together," the insider dished. Additionally, the source says they are dating and are currently in the getting to know each other phase of their budding relationship.
Reed and Somerhalder first sparked romance rumors over the weekend when they were photographed hanging out on Sunday. In addition to laughing and smiling, Somerhalder was caught affectionately touching Reed's neck while giving her a kiss on the head.
Reed was previously married to ex Paul McDonald but filed for divorce back in May citing irreconcilable differences. Meanwhile, Somerhalder broke up with his Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev in May 2013 after nearly three years of dating.
