Ian Somerhalder and actress wife Nikki Reed teamed up at the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Benefit in Chicago last Saturday.


ISF “works to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and it’s creatures,” reads the foundation’s mission statement. Reed and Somerhalder looked cuddly on the red carpet, despite growing rumors that divorce is in the air.

These rumors, of course, are not new, and stem from Somerhalder’s working with his ex Nina Dobrev on Vampire Diaries, which is ending this season. The couple seemed happy as can be during their benefit.

Reed looked great in a black Ulla Johnson dress and jewelry by Grazelia Gems.


A week of entertainment news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

What a truly spectacular evening introducing @isfofficial to such a wonderful group of people in the beautiful city of Chicago. Graziela you moved mountains to make this happen. As I said last night, you have my heart…forever. You, my sister, are the real deal and anyone who knows you knows what I mean. You don’t take no for an answer, and you fight fiercely for what you believe in, all with a smile on your face and love in your heart. I can’t believe all of this started from a phone call between two animal lovers talking pit bull rescue and “foster failures”. So much went into this event, and we are forever grateful. A HUGE thank you to @karolinakurkova , @grazielagems , our incredible ISF team and fellow compassionate Chicagoans for a night of raising awareness on the importance of guiding our youth in a direction that leads to the betterment of this beautiful planet, while saving as many animals as we can :). And Gra, thank you for believing in ISF, and giving so much of yourself to make this world a better place. We love you. Nikki+Ian
