Austin Stowell is reportedly dating former Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev. This is assumed by most to be the first person Dobrev has dated since her split from Ian Somerhalder--who just recently married Twilight star NIkki Reed.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower actor was spotted with Nina Dobrev at the Hallmark Shoebox Relaunch in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

“Nina looked very happy to have a night out with her new guy,” a source tells Us Weekly.

Dobrev was overheard saying she is “really enjoying” living in Los Angeles after relocating there from Atlanta, where Vampire Diaries films.

“They looked super comfortable and happy together,” the source said, adding that the two were also spotted sharing a kiss.

This wasn't the first time Nina Dobrev and Austin Stowell have been spotted in public together. Back in May they had a date at the Indy 500.

It's probably a blessing that Austin Stowell has come into Nina Dobrev's life. Even though she has put on a brave face in light of Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed's marriage, it seemed clear she needed something new and exciting in her world.

There is no denying that Austin Stowell and Nina Dobrev make one incredibly fine looking couple.
