Has Nina Dobrev moved on to a new man?
According to E! News sources, the actress and Derek Hough aren't simply dating, their relationship has already grown to be "somewhat serious."
An insider says The Vampire Diaries star and the Dancing with the Stars hunk have been together since August, with Dobrev certainly not hiding affection for Hough on Instagram.
"@Derekhough !!!!!!!! #EMMYWINNER I cant express in 140 characters how unbelievably excited+incredibly proud I am of you. You deserve this," she wrote on Sunday, following up that message with:
"@derekhough Those of us touched by your light got to watch you brighten up the rest of the world. Keep shining!"
Dobrev and Julianne Hough have been close friends for years, so it's possible there's nothing romantic attached to Nina's positive postings.
Derek did, however, reply to these Tweets by writing "Your the best babe," continuing an exchange that may not make Ian Somerhalder happy.
He split with his beautiful CW costar in the spring.
