Not to be totally immature about this, but Ian Somerhalder looooooves Nikki Reed—at least enough to pen her the Instagram equivalent of War and Peace and to refer to her as one of "the most beautiful ladies in the universe." (The other two, FYI, are the pictured puppies.)

In a public and very complimentary caption (mostly) about girlfriend Nikki Reed (opens in new tab), the Vampire Diaries lead can't help but shout his feelings for all the Internet-accessing world to hear. Let's have a look at some of the sweetest parts:

"Wow smiling (opens in new tab) is such a beautiful part of the human experience-I highly recommend it." (So much joy!)

"@iamnikkireed (opens in new tab) your recent work with Gilt benefiting the @aspca (opens in new tab) is truly extraordinary." (Awwww!)

"Thank you for giving so much of your life and for being a strong voice for those whom can speak."

"My hat is off to you."

"You amaze me."

"Love, Ian" (Love, Ian. Love!)

He's clearly over the moon about her, and we kind of are too for how happy she seems to make him. Ain't love grand?
