Their characters may live eternal lives on the Vampire Diaries, but Life & Style can exclusively confirm that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's real-life romance won't be following suit.
A source confirms to the mag that the pair, who dated for three years, have split.
The sad news comes just months after rumors that the co-stars may have been secretly engaged."This may be the most epic night of my life. No explanation necessary. I'll leave it to the imagination," the beauty tweeted in February before attending Elton John's Oscar viewing party, causing many fans to speculate that they may have taken the plunge.But Nina isn't sitting back letting the breakup get the best of her. Late last month, the bikini-clad starlet was seen frolicking on the beach with Julianne Hough and other pals during an all-girls vacation in Miami.It seems it was a way for she and Julianne to get their minds off all things guys — the Safe Haven actress called it quits with her boyfriend of two years, Ryan Seacrest, in March.After meeting on the set of Vampire Diaries in 2009, rumors started that Nina, 24, and Ian, 34, were an item. Although they began dating in 2010, they confirmed their relationship in the fall of 2011."I didn’t want to be dating one of my co-stars — my goal on the show was to be professional," she's said. "But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long — which I did for a really, really long time.”
