Two months after sparking romance rumors, Vampire Diaries alum Nina Dobrev and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White have gone Instagram official with their relationship. The couple revealed this week that not only are they an item, but they have also been living together during the COVID-19 quarantine.
“Shaun and Nina have really been enjoying quarantining and living together,” a source dished to Us Weekly. “They’re super compatible and both free-spirited people. They’re very comfortable around each other and both supportive of one another in their fields.”
Dobrev and White shared their new romance with the world pics and video on Instagram that featured the actress cutting the Olympic gold medalist’s hair. In the caption of her post, Dobrev wrote: “Adding to resume: hairdresser.”
In the first pic she shared, Dobrev was holding a pair of scissors and smiling, while White sat next to her with messy red hair and a scared look on his face. The second pic featured White’s new short hairdo and Dobrev standing next to him holding all of the hair she cut off.
White also shared a video of Dobrev cutting his hair, and he also posted before and after photos of his new haircut. In his caption, White wrote that his hairstylist said he wouldn’t so she did, and he added the hashtag #QuarantineCuts.
Fans noticed back in February that both Dobrev and White posted pics from South Africa. But it was in March when they really sparked the romance rumors. Cameras spotted the pair on a bike ride together in Malibu, and an insider confirmed they were dating a few weeks later. The source said that Dobrev and White are “enjoying their time together,” and they also share a lot of laughs.
Dobrev and White have also bonded over their mutual love of snowboarding. White has earned three gold medals in the sport, and she recently posted about how much she missed it.
Nina Dobrev previously dated director and screenwriter Grant Mellon, but they split in November 2019 after one year together. She has also dated Glen Powell, Austin Stowell, and her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder.
Shaun White previously dated Phantogram lead singer Sarah Barthel for five years, between 2014 and 2019.
