But is this too soon for "The Vampire Diaries" star?
After all, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were lovers on and off the small screen for three years, having just broken up in a formal manner this past May. Since then, Dobrev has been hanging out with her girlfriends, including Julianne Hough, who also recently split from her longtime boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest. These two dated for two years and ended their union in March.
After that, Julianne and Nina were seen together a lot. The two celebrated celebrities shared a lot of laughs this past summer on various occasions and during those times, Derek Hough, Julianne's brother, often joined in on the fun.
While first denying that the two were dating but were simply good friends, Dobrev has since admitted that she has found her latest love in Derek.
As for Mister Hough?
He's just as smitten. The recent Emmy winner who is a star pro on "Dancing with the Stars" was recently quoted as calling Nina his girlfriend.
And so, as both celebrities finally commit with Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough becoming an official couple, some TVD fans wonder if this new relationship is happening too soon after Nina and Ian Somerhalder broke up.
Apparently, this is just the right time for this two, good-looking luminaries. And, after all, it's their call, right? Right!
