Happy birthday, Nikki Reed!

Cheers to another year around the sun and ideally a day of celebrating with your true love, and everyone's favorite vampire brother, Ian Somerhalder.

As Reed enjoys her 31st birthday, we as fans are looking back at all of the sweet relationship photos and moments she's had over the years with her dreamy husband.

Yes, we are aware that it's the Twilight star's day, but she loves her hubbie so much that it would be a crime for us not to shine a light on their sweet romance.

Whether it's the fact that the two have both played vampires that fans will always remember them for, or the fact that they enjoy getting off the grid and spending time in nature together, this pair is one of Hollywood's most natural and perfectly matched couples and we forever ship them.

In honor of Reed's birthday, we can't help but feel the love of her and her husband. We might not be celebrating our own birthday or our relationship with a handsome actor like Somerhalder, but we are mega fans of these two as an item, so we're totally on board with celebrating them today.

Be prepared for some serious relationship envy as you scroll through these adorable photos that prove just how much The Vampire Diaries alum loves his wife below. Trust us, if you don't already love these two together, you will now!

PS: send some birthday love Reed's way today, because even though Somerhalder is sure to shower her in love and affection, hearing from her die-hard fans would be the cherry on top of a perfect day.

Giving "Gratitude"

The Lost actor praises his wife for helping him get "out of a terrible business situation" that left him in the hospital. "This woman here decided that she didn't want to see her husband ruin his body/mind/spirit and pulled up her bootstraps and got down in the trenches assembling a team to get to the negotiating table to find a way out," he shared. "She devoted her life to getting me out of that mess and it almost killed her along the way. I am where I am BECAUSE of this woman. Brothers Bond Bourbon is actually here today because of this woman. I was able to start my life over because of this woman."

Birthday Boy

In December 2020, Nikki shared a sweet birthday tribute to her husband, writing, "Happy Happy birthday to this man right here. The most creative, certifiably genius, deepest thinker of anyone I have ever known with the most giving spirit."

Pure Bliss

The actor shared this romantic photo, along with a sweet caption about his lady love on their fourth wedding anniversary in 2019. "I'm completely blown away by you...," he began, adding, "Whether dancing at our wedding, swimming across the seas, cuddling one of our furry creatures, jumping on airplanes around the world, snapping beautiful photos or sitting hand and hand looking at the ocean with a beer: we do it all together. It's been nothing short of amazing to breathe the air of the bright blue sky all over this planet with you."
