Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder isn’t vocal about his private life, but he did take time yesterday to share an adorable, loving story about an “amazing woman.” Not only did he proclaim his love twice, but there were lots of exclamation points and a video, too!

So, who’s the lucky lady in question? Co-star Kat Graham, who celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday, September 5!

“Little story of an amazing woman on set…” he captioned the video below. “Happy Birthday Katerina Graham!!!! @katgrahampics we LOVE you! Love, Ian.”

If the scrolling text makes you feel a little dizzy, we’ve got you covered. The white board reads: “1989 — In Geneva, Switzerland, world superstar Kat Graham blessed the world with her presence. Phenomenal singer, actress, and dancer. Happy birthday, Katerina Graham!”

Of course, Ian wasn’t the only one to wish Kat a happy birthday. Many of her co-stars took to Twitter and Instagram to proclaim their love for her, and we’re sure they all celebrated on set, too!

Are you surprised at Ian’s loving story about Kat, or does it just seem like an average day in their friendship? Sound off below!
