Nina Dobrev’s new romance with actor Austin Stowell has been heating up fast, so how does her ex, Ian Somerhalder, feel about it? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Ian Somerhalder, 36, may be married to Nikki Reed, 27, but he previously dated his former Vampire Diaries co-star, Nina Dobrev, 26, for quite a while. Well, she’s now in a new romance — she’s dating actor Austin Stowell, 30. He’s hot, adorable, and seems like a great catch. Does it bother Ian? Or is Ian happy for her? Here’s what we know!
“Ian found the love of his life. He has dealt with his emotions for Nina — they are friendly and nothing more. And now, they really don’t talk since she is away from the show. He’s moved on, so the emotion is not that deep, he is all in for Nikki and Nikki only,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com, hinting that he doesn’t really pay too much attention to Nina’s love life.
“Ian actually knew about Nina’s new relationship, but he never really brought it up while on set. He respected that she didn’t want to hear about Nikki and she respected he didn’t want to hear about Austin. One less thing to worry about. Ian is all about Nikki, his causes, the show and a handful of metaphysical stuff that goes through his mind. He just wants Nina to be happy, and if she is happy with Austin that is good enough for him,” our source adds.
Well, that’s sweet. Even if Nina and Ian don’t pay too much attention to the other, they still seem to want what’s best for each other. Personally, we love Nina with Austin. They make such a cute couple.
