What a whirlwind year for Nina! Her character, Elena, is constantly at the center of a love triangle between Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), but in real life the actress has actually embarked on a new chapter as a single lady.
Meanwhile, her ex-boyfriend and co-star, Ian Somerhalder, 38, has been swept up in a hot and heavy romance with another actress, Nikki Reed, 26.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Ian and Nikki have reportedly moved in together.
