Ian Somerhalder may have been in the business for two decades but he is mostly known as Damon Salvatore in The CW’s hit drama “The Vampire Diaries.” Now, a new report claims that Nikki Reed’s husband has no new projects lined up after the supernatural drama television series wrapped up back in March of this year.

While his fellow “The Vampire Diaries” co-stars have had no problem finding new jobs, it seems like Ian Somerhalder is not having any luck. The report revealed that there could be a chance that Nikki Reed is the acting breadwinner of the family since she is the only one earning from her clothing line, Bayou With Love.

'The Vampire Diares' actor needs Nina Dobrev for a career boost?

It’s no secret that “The Vampire Diaries” has definitely boosted Ian Somerhalder’s Hollywood career, but he was catapulted to stardom after taking his romance with “TVD” co-star Nina Dobrev off camera. Their real-life relationship was well-received by fans and they became one of Hollywood’s power couples at the time. However, their romance did not last as everyone had hoped. Unfortunately for Ian Somerhalder, his failed relationship with Nina Dobrev seemingly affected his career.

While Nina Dobrev is getting a lot of projects like a new movie with Vin Diesel, “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” and expanding her brand from actress to model for Reebok and Donna Karan New York, Ian Somerhalder’s career, on the other hand, suddenly came to a screeching halt during a time when he needed it to pick up the most.

The 38-year-old actor, model, and director just recently revealed that he and his wife, Nikki Reed, are expecting their very first baby.

“This has been the most special time of our lives and we wanted to keep it between the three of us for as long as possible so we could enjoy this time with each other and our little one who is growing so fast,” a part of Ian Somerhalder’s sweet and lengthy Instagram caption read.

“The Vampire Diaries” star and Nikki Reed posted the same photo on social media, where the actor was seen kissing the “Twilight” actress’ growing baby bump.

Despite reports that Ian Somerhalder is not having a lot of luck in finding new projects, his posts on social media reveal that this period of unemployment is certainly not affecting his marriage with Nikki Reed. As a matter of fact, the duo have been nothing but sweet and romantic toward each other.
