Is Ian Somerhalder Rob Lowe’s Son? You Asked, We Answer!

We know, the resemblance between Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and actor Rob Lowe is uncanny. So uncanny, in fact, that these two ladykillers have to be father and son, right?

Wrong! Despite the handsome similarities, Ian and Rob are not related in any way. Rob does have two sons, Erick and John, with wife Sheryl Berkoff.

Ian’s father, Robert, is a building contractor who lives in Louisiana with Ian’s mom, Edna. Wondering what Ian’s dad really looks like? Father and son were photographed living it up in Rio de Janeiro last summer.
