A few years ago, when Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder first hooked up they decided to keep their relationship a secret. They went to work on the set of The Vampire Diaries and then curled up together at night in peace, without fans going crazy or the paps trailing them. I guess it became a pretty hard secret to keep and so after about a year the relationship went public. From that point on it was chaos with fans going crazy. The added pressure as well as Ian’s rumored wandering eye eventually helped to put an end to things and when they broke up early last spring things were ugly. Working together seemed iffy at best, but somehow they managed to do it.
There have been rumblings about Ian and Nina reconnecting last September and you have to admit they seem to be getting along awfully well. Nina had dated Derek Hough briefly and supposedly he dropped her when he realized she was rekindling things with Ian. On Thursday, Nina was photographed celebrating her 25th birthday with her BFF Julianne Hough and Ian. Are they back together? Is that why Ian was right beside her as she blew out those candles? We’re hearing yes, but don’t expect either of them to confirm it.
Things are red hot once again between Ian and Nina but this time around they aren’t letting the fans or paps control the way they live their lives together. They have realized that things worked great when they kept their private life private and so they are sticking to that course. Don’t be surprised if we find out long after the fact that not only are these two together, but that they’re married! Do you think that Ian and Nina belong together?
