From Women's Health

  • Nina Dobrev and Shaun White just celebrated the Vampire Diaries alum's birthday.

  • The Olympic snowboarder shared cute and silly photos of the couple to Instagram.

  • Rumors of their romance first began in March, so here's their full relationship timeline.

Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev and boyfriend Olympic snowboarder Shaun White are apparently still going strong after more than a year together. Shaun just shared the sweetest (and most hilarious) series of photos of the couple on Instagram to celebrate Nina’s birthday.

"Too bad we never have any fun together ...😉 Happy birthday baby! 🥂🎉," Shaun captioned shots of the two of them wearing full-on '80s gear—complete with themed sunglasses—while mugging the camera.

Head on over to Shaun’s Instagram Story and you can see videos of Nina eating food and laughing at the aftermath of spilling ketchup on her white sweatshirt. "Fork on the ground; ketchup on the white hoodie," Shaun can be heard teasing her in the background.

Basically, these two are total couple goals. Nina and Shaun look like they're having tons of fun staying at home together, but when exactly did their romance start? Here's Nina Dobrev and Shaun White's full relationship timeline:

March 2020: Nina and Shaun are first spotted together.

At the end of March, when Los Angeles' stay-at-home order when into effect, the pair were spotted bike riding together in Malibu, along with Nina's dog. E! News reported they were "spending time together," but not officially dating.

"Nina and Shaun have been spending a lot of time together recently," a source told the publication. "Their relationship doesn't have an official title right now, but that's pretty normal for Nina."

The source added that Nina is a private person, and won't post photos of a new beau until it's official: "She is very careful about posting photographs together because she wants to ease into things naturally and organically." So Nina's new snap is definitely a BFD.

Mid-April 2020: They post a sneaky grocery-washing video.

A little less than a month later, Nina posted an IGTV video showing fans how to wash groceries during the COVID-19 pandemic, but instead of using her arms, she used Shaun's. As she narrates the hand-washing video, he washes the groceries, unscrews a bottle of juice, and tries to get her to drink it. Some fans noticed Shaun’s tattoo, leading them to believe the pair quarantined together (which everyone now knows they did—and still are). “Usually I like to wash before I drink it, but sometimes you break the rules,” she said in the video.

Early May 2020: A source spills the relationship tea.

At the beginning of May, a source close to the couple told People that yes, they're dating. "Their friends were surprised at first about the relationship, but now that they’ve seen them together it actually makes a lot of sense," the source said. "They’re both goofy and have a similar sense of humor and are super adventurous. They have plenty in common." Awww!

May 2020: Nina and Shaun became Insta-official.

The couple made their relationship Instagram ~official~ with a self-quarantine haircut snap. The 31-year-old actress captioned the photo, "Adding to resume: hairdresser ✂️." In the first pic, Nina flashes a pair of scissors while the 33-year-old snowboarder grimaces. In the next slide, she holds a pile of hair she cut off, which Shaun playfully side-eyes.

May 2020: The couple are living together amid quarantine.

"Shaun and Nina have really been enjoying quarantining and living together," a source told Us Weekly. "They’re super compatible and both free-spirited people. They’re very comfortable around each other and both supportive of one another in their fields."

"Nina really likes Shaun and they both laugh a lot together and think each other is funny," the source added.

December 2020: They celebrated the holidays together.

JIC you missed the fact that these two are pretty serious, Nina showed up in a series of pics that Shaun shared on Instagram to celebrate the holidays. "Happy holidays everyone!" he wrote in the caption. Shaun didn’t mention Nina, but when you scroll to the last pic, she’s cozied up to Shaun in a collage of polaroids, featuring a photo of the two of them wearing Santa hats. "Did i see NINAAAAAAA," one fan wrote in the comments. "You and Nina make the cutest couple ever❤️," another said.

January 2021: Nina revealed that she and Shaun started dating earlier than previously thought.

The actress shared an Instagram of herself and Shaun celebrating New Year’s Eve... 2020. "How we thought 2020 would go 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 how it actually went," she wrote in the caption. While the couple were first spotted toghether in March 2020, this proves that they were a ~thing~ way back in January—if not earlier.

January 2021: They celebrated Nina’s birthday together.

Shaun shared an adorable series of pics of he and Nina goofing off together, while wearing '80s gear. "Too bad we never have any fun together ...😉 Happy birthday baby! 🥂🎉" he wrote in the caption. Awwww!
