Spotted: Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder Step Out At MuchMusic Video Awards
Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
We've long suspected in our heart of hearts that "Vampire Diaries" stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were an item. There are only so many music festivals to attend and European cities to visit together before it's obvious something is going on. And here's yet another piece of evidence nearly proving what we already knew: The pair attended the MuchMusic Video Awards together—like together, together—on Sunday night.
Nina, a Canadian native and former "Degrassi" star, and her "TVD" cast mate were introduced as a "beautiful couple"—a moniker neither of the actors seemed to dispute—during the show's live red carpet.
When asked who they most wanted to see, Nina kept it political and went for the night's co-host Selena Gomez (also pictured), while Ian kept it more Damon-like quipping, "Who am I most excited to see tonight? Nina Dobrev." The two were on hand to present at the big show, which included other A-list guests like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
While hints have been out there for some time, this is the closest we've come to a confirmation that these two really, really, really pretty individuals are, in fact, a pretty couple. Elena's heart may belong to Stefan on screen, but in the real world, it seems Nina's a Damon kind of lady.
