Unlike Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, Nina Dobrev is having a great end to her year, spending it alongside her new man, Austin Stowell! The two, who have allegedly been dating since June, couldn’t have looked happier as they spent time together on the slopes.
Nina shared an adorable snapshot of herself and the fellow actor, and her smile says it all! Austin is the first man Nina has been seen out-and-about with since her 2013 split from Ian. And it looks like the wait was well worth it.
She previously addressed her split from Ian, and told E! "I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship.” But still, fans were pretty shocked when Ian began dating Nina’s friend, Nikki, and married her after a six-month courtship.
But the tables may have turned, as Nikki and Ian are allegedly having relationship issues. The two haven’t been seen out in public together since October, and according to reports, they are battling over when to start a family.

“Now that things are slowing down on The Vampire Diaries, Ian wants to start a family, but Nikki wants to wait a couple of years,” a source told InTouch. “The last few weeks have been brutal—they’ve been constantly arguing about the future,” added the insider.
