With rumors of a summer romance continuing to spread like wildfire, the Vampire Diaries star finally admitted that he's quite happy with his frequent farmers' market date.
"Life is good," Somerhalder told E! News at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys. "There's a lot of support and love from a lot of people."
He added, "I couldn't be happier if I tried." Awwww!
In recent weeks, the 35-year-old hunk has been spotted spending a lot of time with the Twilight star.
Before attending the Teen Choice Awards together, the twosome shared some cute PDA moments.
During a recent coffee run, the duo was spotted looking cozy as Somerhalder touched the back of Reed's neck and affectionately whispered in her ear.
And at San Diego's Comic-Con, eyewitnesses spotted the two kissing and holding hands inside a weekend party.
"[Nikki and Ian are] smitten with each other and love spending time together," an insider told E! News.
From the looks of it, this could turn into much more than a summer fling!
