The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, 33, is desperate to marry his gorgeous co-star and real-life love, Nina Dobrev, but the 23-year-old says she needs time to enjoy her career before settling down and starting a family.
"Ian is 10 years older than she is and more than ready to make it official. But he said he understands her need to wait a little longer," says the source.
She said she doesn't want to get married for another five years, but he hopes she comes around sooner than that.
