Wedding planners, dust off your finest sample bouquets! Looks like Fifty Shades of Grey hopeful Ian Somerhalder may be walking down the aisle some time in the near future. A fan proposed to the Vampire Diaries actor recently on Instagram, and ... okay, Ian Somerhalder is definitely not getting married any time soon. But his reaction to the joking-but-totally-serious proposal was quite adorable. And even if he did accept the proposal, there wouldn't be a wedding anyway, because I'm pretty sure the fan died shortly after reading Ian's response.
Emotionally, you guys. Not physically. Christ, that would be awful.
Instagram user emanohar24 wrote: "How about we get married @iansomerhalder sorry my proposal isn't more romantic." To which Ian replied: "Marriage proposal -- I think it's plenty romantic. Proposal on Instagram is more than sufficient :)" Ian then posted the exchange on his Twitter account, and that's when I'm assuming a funeral service was held for emanohar24's emotions. RIP, feelings.
The fact that Ian responded to this Ian-obsessed person is pretty damn cool. This is the stuff fangirl dreams are made of right here. I'm sure this gal wrote her marriage proposal message, thinking Ian would never read it. But lo and behold, not only did he read it, he responded to it.
Hopefully, emanahor24 is a smart and sane enough person to know that there aren't going to be any vows exchanged between the two of them any time in the near future. Dude was just joshing her. But she may want to take a screenshot of Ian's screenshot and put it in an album. Her grandkids are going to want to see this someday.
Would you die if Ian Somerhalder responded to your message?
