During the filming of The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were dating for quite some time. They had been dating for six months when Ian Somerhalder proposed. Nina Dobrev responded to the wedding announcement in a 2015 interview with E Online. She expressed her joy for the happy couple.
Their engagement made news because they chose a magical night at Disneyland as their setting. The two stars got engaged after three years of dating. They started out as friends on The Vampire Diaries and over the course of the series grew closer until they decided to take things further by becoming an official couple.
Ian Somerhalder is known for his roles as Damon Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries and as Jean Claude Van Damme in Kick-Ass. He has also appeared in other television shows such as Faking It, Nip/Tuck, and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. His film credits include X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Unborn. Ian Somerhalder was born on July 21st, 1984 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Nina Dobrev was born on January 4th, 1992 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She is best known for her role as Elena Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries. Before joining the cast of The Vampire Diaries, she appeared in various Canadian TV shows such as Friday Night Lights and Beat Bugs.
During the duration of The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder famously dated—and then split up. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, widely known as Elena and Damon to The Vampire Diaries viewers, were once the most talked-about pair (both on and off-screen) when they began dating in 2010. Their romance was very popular with fans and critics alike; however, it wasn't always easy for them. They often found themselves in feuds with each other's families over their shared girlfriend, Bonnie.
They first met on an episode of The Vampire Diaries in which she came to town looking for her brother, Stefan. At first, she just stayed at the Gilbert house while she looked for him, but after he died, she decided to stay in Mystic Falls and start a new life. She eventually meets and falls in love with vampire Damon Salvatore (Ian), who also happens to be Elena's friend's brother. However, things don't go smoothly between them from the beginning because they both have feelings for each other but can't seem to figure out how to deal with it.
Finally, in an attempt to save her own life, Elena makes the choice to become a hybrid vampiric being with all of the qualities that come with it. This decision ends up destroying her relationship with Damon and forcing him to leave town. After many years have passed, they both return home for the funeral of Bonnie.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder ended their relationship following the sixth season of "The Vampire Diaries." Nina later discussed her ex-marriage boyfriend's in an interview. Nina Dobrev eventually chose to come out and tell about their split after a long quiet over Ian Somerhalder's wedding.
They met on the set of "The Vampire Diaries" in 2010 when she was just 16 years old. They got married on May 24, 2014 at a small church in France after only three months of dating. The couple has been criticized for rushing into marriage but they both agree that they wanted to get married as soon as possible after their engagement. They have one son together named Sir Alexander Michael Somerhalder.
After six seasons, it has been confirmed by both parties that Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have called it quits. He made the announcement on his Instagram page on January 12, 2017 stating that he is happy and healthy now. He also thanked everyone for their support throughout the years.
Nina posted a picture on her Instagram account confirming her breakup with Ian. She wrote: "I'm alive and well and living in Paris! And I've decided to start posting pictures of myself again. Because I really like looking at photos of myself and thinking about my life before I went away to tour with "The Vampire Diaries"."
Dobrev and Somerhalder dated for a few years before splitting up in 2013. Despite the separation, the two continued to collaborate since their onscreen characters, Elena and Damon, remained in love.
However, when it came time to pick a star for Elena's story after The Vampire Diaries ended, both Dobrev and Somerhalder were nominated for awards. While Dobrev went on to win Best Drama Actress at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Somerhalder lost out to Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe.
After the ceremony, rumors began to spread that the two had gotten back together but they quickly denied them. They also said that they weren't going to work together again unless there was a new series worth creating.
However, several months later in September 2014, it was reported that Somerhalder had met with producers about a new series called Outlander. The idea for the show came from writer Diana Gabaldon's book of the same name and it would focus on a young woman who finds herself trapped in the past through time travel.
Somerhalder was set to play her husband. However, due to creative differences, he didn't end up starring in the series. Instead, he sent an actor in his place - Malcolm Goodwin.
Nina Dobrev has dated celebrities such as Ian Somerhalder, Derek Hough, Liam Hemsworth, and others. Here is a list of the actress' ex-boyfriends.
She started dating Ian Somerhalder in 2004 when she was only 15 years old. The couple broke up in 2006 but got back together in 2008 after a two-year hiatus. They announced their separation in 2009 and finalized it in 2010 after three years of marriage. They have one son together named Viloce.

In 2017, she began dating Liam Hemsworth.

Nina Dobrev is acquainted with Ian Somerhalder's wife (and she doesn't think it's strange). According to Brides, Ian married Twilight actress Nikki Reed in 2015. Bodhi, Ian and Nikki's daughter, has even met her. However, nothing official has been announced by the couple or their representatives.
It all began when Nina, who is currently starring in The Vampire Diaries as one of its main characters, Elena Gilbert, tweeted about her daughter on January 23, 2016. She wrote: "I am so happy that my little girl will be born at home with my husband by my side." A few minutes later, another user asked if she was pregnant again because she had already appeared to be with child twice before. Nina replied that she and Ian were waiting until they were ready to tell anyone else about the pregnancy but would let everyone know once the time was right.
They also invited their fans to help name the baby if they wanted. So far, no names have been revealed for either daughter.
Nikki and Ian both starred in the TV series Vampires Anonymous before marrying. After marrying, they decided to move their wedding ceremony and reception into their house so they could save money. The couple also has a son named Fletcher Ray Somerhalder who was born in April 2012. He is an actor too!
