"The Vampire Diaries" actor Ian Somerhalder has something in common with one of the stars of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," and it has nothing to do with beauty pageants, sketti, or being "smexy." According to an Oct. 5 report by The Huffington Post, Ian and Mama June Shannon are the same age, which means that Ian could also be a grandparent.
Ian did recently tell his fans that he's about to be a grandfather, but he wasn't admitting that he has a secret lovechild who would be the biggest "Teen Mom" star ever. The actor quickly clarified his claim by saying that his dog Nietzsche is about to give birth to eight puppies. But how cute is it that he thinks of his pregnant pet as his daughter?
It might be hard to believe that Ian Somerhalder could be a grandfather since he plays a hot, ageless bloodsucker on "The Vampire Diaries," but it's entirely possible for the actor to be a GILF. As The Huffington Post points out, 34-year-old "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star Mama June is the same age as Ian (which is extremely hard to believe), and she's already a grandmother. Her oldest daughter Chickadee gave birth to a baby girl named Kaitlyn in season 1 of the family's popular TLC show.
Oddly, this isn't the only connection shared between Ian and a cast member of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." "The Vampire Diaries" star and Alana Thompson (a.k.a. Honey Boo Boo) were both named Entertainment Weekly Entertainers of the Year in 2012. So since rednecks and vampires are both extremely popular, isn't it time that Hollywood combined them together in a movie or TV series? "Here Comes Bloody Boo Boo" could actually be a really big hit.
So are you surprised that Ian and Mama June are the same age?
