Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed's love for each other was on full display at a basketball game in Los Angeles on Sunday. The close game between the LA Lakers and the Phoenix Suns was an exciting one to watch, but it seems that Somerhalder only had eyes for Reed.
The "Vampire Diaries" star also showed his affection for his girlfriend on a snowboarding trip in Sun Valley, Idaho on Friday. In the caption of a sweet Instagram photo of the couple, Somerhalder called the "Twilight" star "incredible" before wishing his 3.9 million followers a happy holiday:
No filter for this sunny Sun Valley day of awesomeness with my loves, the incredible @iamnikkireed and my brother @nathanaugustreed .The Happiest of holidays to everyone, may nothing but smiles, family time and reflection come from these moments.

Smiles are contagious-please spread them;) I'm grateful for and l love you all... Love, Ian
Romance rumors about the pair first started in July, but Somerhalder confirmed their relationship in September when he slammed his Instagram followers for their negative comments about Reed. Perhaps the fans were upset to see Somerhalder move on from his "Vampire Diaries" co-star Nina Dobrev. Despite all the drama, it's clear that Somerhalder and Reed are still smitten.
