Nina celebrated her 25th birthday on Jan. 9 and it looked to be a dream party — especially because Nina’s ex and ‘Vampire Diaries’ flame, Ian, was on hand! So do you think the celebration led to any rekindled romance?
We’re not sure what Nina Dobrev wished for when she blew out the candles on her 25th birthday cake, because by the looks of things her party was already a dream come true! Ian Somerhalder was on hand to ring in his ex’s birthday — just one day after planting a kiss on her cheek at the People’s Choice Awards — causing all fans to renew their hope in his and Nina’s relationship.
Nina Dobrev Celebrates Her Birthday With Ian Somerhalder
Nina’s birthday celebration appeared to be pretty low-key — no huge club night for this gal — but still a ton of fun. Along with Ian, Nina’s closest friend Julianne Hough was in the house, as was The Vampire Diaries creator Kevin Williamson. The friends made Nina a lovely cake, embellished with frosting flowers, and Nina looked so overjoyed and touched by all the attention.
And it was also clear that Nina and Ian still have some juice left in the tank. In a pic tweeted out by Kevin, Nina is holding her cake and laughing uncontrollably, while Ian cozies up to his TVD ex and Julianne. They look like they’re having so much fun, and you’d never know that they’re exes.
Ian Somerhalder Kisses Nina Dobrev
It’s been a pretty great week for the people who have been holding out for a Nina-Ian reunion. The day before the two flirtatiously celebrated Nina’s birthday, they were thrust together by winning the award for Favorite On-Screen Chemistry at the People’s Choice Awards. And they did not disappoint with their acceptance speech.
They both joked about how their on-screen romance has outlasted their off-screen romance, before Nina added, “Good thing it’s not awkward.” Ian then went in for a big kiss, smooching his ex-girlfriend right on the cheek.
With all this love we’ve been seeing from Nina and Ian, we’re seriously hankering for a reunion. But even if we don’t get one, we love seeing how close Nina and Ian have remained despite everything they’ve been through.
