Friendly Exes! Nina Dobrev Helps Ian Somerhalder’s Dog Give Birth

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder — who ended their relationship last May after three years of dating — are still friends. In fact, Nina was by Ian's side as his adopted dog Nietzsche gave birth to eight puppies on Tuesday!

"Birthing little Nietzsches ...Such a beautiful + equally terrifying thing to witness," Dobrev posted on her WhoSay account. "The miracle of life :) #Wow."

Somerhalder, 34, rescued Nietzsche in August after finding her in traffic near "The Vampire Diaries" set in Georgia, unaware that the dog was pregnant at the time.

"The calm before the storm … Launching Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries&preparing for the launch of a whole part of life-being a GRANDFATHER," Ian posted last week.

Although Dobrev, 24, has moved on romantically, "The Vampire Diaries" exes/co-stars have proven time and again on social media that there is no awkwardness between them. Nina is currently dating "Dancing With the Stars" pro Derek Hough.

As for Ian? We're sure the gorgeous do-gooder won't have any trouble landing a new gal pal. She just better be down with the whole grandma thing!
