Ian Somerhalder gave plenty of interviews during his time at Comic-Con over the weekend, but the Vampire Diaries star’s chat with E! Online might have been our favorite — probably because it involved a momentarily flustered Ian talking marriage. When does Ian plan to tie the knot?


When a TVD interview playfully turned to talk of marriage and the mention that Ian is not, the actor responded: “I will be. I will be.” No, Ian doesn’t seem to have any secret nuptials planned. You didn’t miss an engagement announcement. He wasn’t talking in specifics, just implying that one day he might be married. The interview is worth watching just to see interviewer Kristin Dos Santos’ reaction to Ian’s original statement and to watch Ian qualify the statement: "I mean eventually, in my life! No, I mean eventually,” he clarified.

Ian’s love life has always been a topic of interest for many TVD fans, given that Ian and co-star Nina Dobrev were together for three years during the filming of TVD. The couple broke up last year, but continue to be friends. Ian is now dating Twilight’s Nikki Reed. The two were recently spotted getting cuddly at a Farmers Market in Studio City.

When asked during the interview which box he would tick — “Single,” “Taken,” or “It’s Complicated” — Ian got coy, responding: “I’m here, man. I’m here.” That should definitely be a box-ticking option.
