Nina Dobrev’s New Man Has Her Asking One Thing -- Ian Who?

OMG 12

nina dobrev After ending her three-year romance with Vampire Diaries costar Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev said she wanted to be alone for awhile. So much for that. It appears Nina has found a hot new man to keep her company. You'll never guess who it is!

Nina is rebounding with adorable Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough. How did that happen, you ask? Well, since her split with Ian, Nina has been spending a ton of time with her BFF Julianne Hough, Derek's sister. Soon, the actress fell for him. It's easy to see why. Derek is like a little ball of sunshine -- and it's not just because of his perfectly tanned skin and highlighted blond hair.

On DWTS, he was always one of the most positive and upbeat of the cast. Not only that, he was mesmerizing to watch. That is a fact certainly not lost on Nina. When Derek picked up his Emmy for Outstanding Choreography, she posted this message to her WhoSay account: "Those of us touched by your light got to watch you brighten up the rest of the world. Keep shining!"

Derek is totally smitten too. A source told Us Weekly, "He said he hasn't felt this way for a girl in a long time. Everyone approves." So sweet. He is probably just what she needs after a bad breakup.

Do you think Nina and Derek make a good couple?

blegh, I never found Derek attractive, but it's not always about looks, I'm sure he is a nice person.

Nina and Ian didn't have a "bad breakup" they still work together, and by all accounts are still friends. I'm sure it was hard, because they had 3 years together, but it's not what I would call a bad breakup.

Can I ask one thing? If Nina and Derek are such a huge "adorable" drawcard, great PR for them as they are forcefully pushing and rubbing it in on Twitter, why do we continue to have Ian's name in EVERY single article about them? I bet it will still be the same in 6 months. Keep Ian out of the BS. He doesn't parade his love life on social media for the crows to pick at, nor should he be tweeting support to smooth and calm the fans when the attention seekers do.
