In a fun twist, however, Dobrev sparked a new romance with costar Ian Somerhalder -- who wound up playing Damon on the show. The two were love interests on the show and dated IRL from 2010-2013.
After the two went their separate ways, he linked up with Nikki Reed -- to whom he's been married since 2015. Somerhalder and Reed share one child, daughter Bodhi. Nina, meanwhile, found love with Shaun White, who she's been dating since 2020.
Last month, the Olympic snowboarder later confessed that he binge-watched "Vampire Diaries" in an effort to be closer to Dobrev while she was filming a movie abroad.
"I liked it. It was good," he said, adding that when Dobrev left on a shoot for three months, he decided, "Oh, this will be cool. I'll start the show. I'll see her without seeing her."
