Well, there goes all of our hopes that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder would rekindle their relationship after their May 2013 split — rumor has it that she's dating Derek Hough!
According to E! News, the recent Emmy-winner (for Outstanding Choreography on Dancing with the Stars) and The Vampire Diaries actress are "somewhat serious" after becoming a couple in August of this year.
Considering that his sister, Julianne Hough, is best friends with the 24-year-old actress, the two have been linked for some time, but only recently began to sing each other's praises:

Earlier this month, co-star/ex complimented his former love online, calling her "stunning" after spotting her cover of Cosmopolitan at the store. Guess that was just a friendly rather than romantic remark. Sigh.
