I’m sorry ladies, but Derek Hough, the four-time winning Dancing With The Stars pro dancer and choreographer, is actually now off the market. The media has not really seen Hough publicly involved with anyone in a while since Shannon Elizabeth, the American Pie star who partnered with Hough in season six of Dancing With The Stars. Now, it has been confirmed that Derek Hough and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev are now dating (Source: Life and Style Magazine).
Nina Dobrev (born as Nina Constantinova Dobreva) is a Bulgarian-born model who moved to Canada at a young age (Source: IMDb), where she became interested in the performing arts (dance, theatre, and acting). Dobrev is currently known for her roles as Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce in the CW show The Vampire Diaries.
Rumors of the couple’s involvement with one another started when a tweet from Dobrev’s Twitter account @ninadobrevj (shown below) expressed her happiness for Hough’s Emmy win.

A tweet later published by Derek exclaimed “You’re the best babe” in response to another tweet that Dobrev posted praising Hough for his win during this year’s Emmys.
According to Life and Style Magazine, the couple was set up by Derek’s sister Julianne, who originally was another pro-dancer on Dancing With The Stars, but left early on to set her sights on a country music career (Source: TV Guide).[Image source: WetPaint]
