Actors Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley from the show The Vampire Diaries are seen here getting mobbed by fans while leaving the Hard Rock Cafe at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego last night (July 13, 2012).
At one point, being the generous and loving person that Ian is, he stopped to kiss a fans young baby much to the delight of her mother.
The group attended the Maxim, FX and Fox Home Entertainment Comic-Con Party at Andaz.

Charitybuzz is hosting an auction that will award the highest bidder a chance to have lunch with the Vampire Diaries star in Atlanta. (Place your bid here.) All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, and specifically go toward the organization’s plans to open up an animal sanctuary.
“A big component of ISF is not just habitat or species conservation, it’s animal protection and youth education,” the actor tells EW exclusively. “There are too many animals that are abused, mistreated, and abandoned. They’ve been ostracized, they have behavioral issues, and they’re starving. It’s just unbelievable what we’ve done to the animals, and I think that’s why this is so important.”
The auction is currently live and will run through July 18, and it will help fund the acquisition of land that Somerhalder has his eye on. The plan, he says, is to make this haven a reality “very soon.” And the big goal is to make the sanctuary a place of co-rehabilitation — benefiting both animals and troubled youth.
