The Vampire Diaries alum and the professional snowboarder sparked dating rumors in February 2020 when fans noticed that they had shared similar photos from a trip to South Africa. Us Weekly broke the news the following April that Dobrev and White were, in fact, a couple.
After the twosome made their relationship Instagram official in May 2020, things continued to heat up even as they balanced their respective schedules and careers.
“We have a nice little system of how to stay in touch [and] plane tickets are pretty much booked for any opportunity that we can go see one another,” White exclusively told Us in October 2021. “You just make it work. … I think that’s the goal of it all and the key to it all is just making the time. [Nina’s] super organized and on top of it, so I give it to her. She always finds a way to make it happen.”
