We checked out the pics and thought she looked great, etc., but then something sparkly caught our little eye!
A mysterious gold ring on her left hand!
It can only mean one thing…SHE'S ENGAGED TO IAN SOMERHALDER!!!
Let's analyze the evidence, shall we?
Secondly, it was her birthday yesterday (a very opportune time to ask your lady love to marry you)!
Thirdly, it looks really shiny, you know, like a DIAMOND!
Fourthly, she has a ginormous smile on her face–the kind you get when someone proposes!
The only kink in our theory is that Nina and Ian were not together last night. Ian was collecting awards at the People's Choice Awards, while Nina was at that Dior event.
HOWEVER, considering how private they are about their love lives, it stands to reason that they didn't attend the PCAs on purpose so Nina's ring finger would remain incognito!
It's genius, but it's not genius enough to fool us.
So, are they really engaged?
We don't know for sure but signs are pointing to YES!!!
