It looks like Nina Dobrev
has finally moved on from ex Ian Somerhalder
, whom she split with earlier this year. According to Us
magazine, the actress is now linked to Dancing with the Stars
pro Derek Hough
, the older brother of best friend Julianne
"[Nina] was hanging a lot with Derek's sister Julianne," a source revealed to the magazine. "Then she fell for him."
During Sunday night's Emmys, The Vampire Diaries
star was quick to take to her social media
to praise Hough for his Outstanding Choreography win. "Those of us touched by your light got to watch you brighten up the rest of the world," she captioned the snap. "Keep shining!"
Sources also revealed that 28-year-old dancer is pretty happy with where the relationship is headed. "Derek is smitten with Nina," the source dished. "He said he hasn't felt this way for a girl in a long time... Everyone approves!"
