If you had asked us a few weeks ago (and you did, by the way), we’d have to tell you that Ian Somerhalder hadn’t yet jumped aboard the Instagram bandwagon.

Back in November, the Vampire Diaries star took to Twitter to set the record straight about a highly followed account that bared his name: “I DO NOT have an Instagram! I will soon & Ill let you know when I do - The current one is a fake... Sorry!”

Well, wait no more, because the official Ian Somerhalder Instagram has finally arrived! You know what that means, right? Tons of photos of Ian’s cats, Ian’s travels, and most importantly, Ian’s piercing blue eyes.

Don’t tell us we never gave you anything for Christmas.
