Nian shippers look away now, because it seems like the ever-smoudlering Ian Somerhalder has found himself a new supernatural squeeze.

[The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) actor was spotted indulging in multiple public displays of affection with Twilight star Nikki Reed, and I'm pretty sure good friends don't hug like that!

As my regular readers will know, I spend a lot of my time dispelling the baseless romance rumors that swirl around Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, but I really think this could be the real deal.

Check out the photographic evidence below and see if you agree for yourself;

Anyone with two eyes can't deny how loved up this pair look.

The way Ian is hugging Nikki from behind as she lovingly clasps his hand screams new couple so loudly it's making my eardrums reverberate with excitement!

Not to mention the fact that the pair were spotted jogging together just one day before these affection laden images emerged...

A runaway romance in the making?

Interestingly, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev used to go on double dates with Reed and her ex-husband Paul McDonald before both couples split. Maybe this little forbidden crush has really had time to marinade?
