Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough are dating! Months after her split from longtime beau Ian Somerhalder, Nina has been hooking up with the "Dancing with the Stars" pro -- and her best friend's brother. On Sept. 25, Huffington Post confirmed the news -- that Nina and Derek have been quietly dating for about a month -- but that things between them are already pretty serious.
"They were set up by Julianne. It got serious really fast and they're inseparable. They're already saying 'I love you.' Now they're talking about having her go to 'DWTS' to support him," a source shared.
Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough have hung out in the past thanks to Nina's super close relationship to Derek's sister, Julianne. Rumors that Nina and Derek were an item surfaced months ago but with recent tweets (Nina has been retweeting a bunch from Amber Riley who happens to be Derek's dance partner this year), people have become more and more curious about their relationship.
"@Derekhough !!!!!!!! #EMMYWINNER I cant express in 140 characters how unbelievably excited+incredibly proud I am of you. You deserve this :)," Nina wrote on Instagram after Hough's Emmy win over the weekend.
