Dobrev's new dude! Nina Dobrev has been enjoying a sunny yacht vacation in St. Tropez with her actor boyfriend, Austin Stowell. The Vampire Diaries alum, 26, was photographed throughout the weekend lounging on the deck of her group's yacht. 

At one point she even rode down a giant slide leading off the yacht and into the water with Stowell, 30. Dobrev also posted an Instagram video sliding backwards off the slide last week, writing, "Here's to never growing up! Bye Felicia."

"I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship," Dobrev told E! News recently. "I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now."
