Nina Dobrev is currently in a longtime relationship with her Olympic gold medalist boyfriend Shaun White.
The Canadian actress, age 32, was first linked with her present partner back in February 2020 when people noticed that they had shared pictures that were taken at a similar place when both of them were in South Africa.
The talks got fueled a month later when they were caught riding bikes in Malibu. A couple of months later, it was eventually confirmed that they were together. On May 29, 2020, Dobrev made her relationship with White Instagram official.
“Adding to resume: hairdresser,” she captioned the picture, in which she was holding a scissor whilst about to give a haircut to her boyfriend.
Around the same time, an insider told US Weekly that the couple were living together since the pandemic began and that “They’re super compatible and both free-spirited people.” The insider further added, “They’re very comfortable around each other and both supportive of one another in their fields.”
As time passed, the two were seen vacationing together at several places, hinting that they have bonded very well and it’s not just a short fling. Their strengthening bond was also seen when the duo’s families celebrated Thanksgiving together.
Even more couple pictures of Dobrev and White came as they went on vacations, celebrated each other’s birthdays, celebrated their one-year dating anniversary, and more. And, going by all of that, it seems we’ll see more of their togetherness in the future.
Nina Dobrev’s Relationship History

Afterward, several PDA-filled pictures came out of the couple from their vacations. Sadly, their togetherness didn’t last long as they broke up almost a year later, in November 2019.
Following her split with Mellon, the actress took some time off romance until she met her now-partner, Shaun White. Since then, she has always been together with White.
