Dobrov was reaching a peak in her career with the show’s popularity since the beginning. She kept it secret and the reason was the very ambitious nature of Dobrov. It is also clear from one of her interviews where she said she didn’t want to date her co-stars. In spite of the rumor, she has dated her co-workers in the past including one actor from Degrassi. The two of them were friends initially and Dobrov also accepted her failed attempts in hiding the relationship. She was slowly giving into Somerhalder. Her desire to maintain her personal and professional life separate was always central to her statements.

Nina and Ian were too much in love that they started hanging out and their meetings also included their parents. It was reported that the two have planned to take it to a further agreement. The romance of the couple was just getting high that the news of the fall of their three-year relationship filled the air.

The vampire diaries couple had won the People’s Choice Award in 2014 and they both received it together and happily.

Did Nina Really Choose A Career Over Somerhalder?

As per the speculations drawn, it is true indeed that Nina didn’t want to settle and get married. One could also see it in contrast to what Somerhalder wants from a relationship. As he got married to Nikki Reed after dating her for just six months. In the meanwhile, Nina ran out of the next series when she declared that she was done with the six seasons of the show. Although Nina once stated that if someone is not happy in a relationship with themselves then they shouldn’t be dating each other. But she could not hide her happiness with Ian not as a co-worker and an offscreen lover. Although she denied it once but admitted it openly irrespective of her previous statements. As a consequence, Nina stepped back off the show.

It is also surprising to know that Nikki Reed was another co-star in the show whom Somerhalder again fell in love with. Nina Dobrov was and is still a good friend of hers and there is no off-screen love triangle. Nikki Reed also stated it officially clearing the doubts that three of them were still friends and would always remain. In 2017 Reed and Somerhalder were blessed with a baby girl and he celebrated mother’s day by sharing a picture of his pregnant wife. He wished her all the love and happiness. Ian has really moved on in life whereas Nina had to face the end of her journey in vampire diaries. This is what she might have never expected in her life of settling down and having kids. Speculations are drawn that it was doubted by her as an obstacle in the rising career.
