Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, actors bound together by the fact that they have both played vampires in screen adaptations of teen novels, got engaged two months ago. You knew that, I'm sure. But did you know that Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder do not say the word "fiancé"?

It's true. At the Third Annual Noble Awards* in Beverly Hills this weekend, the pair told E! News that they prefer to use other words.

"We have all kinds of words," Nikki explained.

"We have lots of words," Ian agreed.

"We stick with 'human,'" Nikki said.

"It's the best word," Ian added.

"He's my human," Nikki confirmed.

So let's see—how many words do Nikki and Ian have? "Human" is one word. "Fiancé" is another one, but Nikki and Ian don't have it in their shared vocabulary.

I guess they have one word.

*Not to be confused with the Nobel Prize.
