The Vampire Diaries actress and the snowboarder fueled raving speculation when they posted similar pictures of a trip to South Africa in February 2020. Fans were convinced of the budding romance between the two when Dobrev and Shaun were pictured enjoying a bike ride together a month later. But minimal doubt remained still as Dobrev's romantic link with director Grant Mellon was still fresh at the time.

Dobrev and White's relationship was verified in April as insiders revealed the pair were having a good time together." Nina and Shaun are into each other and are dating," a source close to the couple revealed, further adding, "They're enjoying their time together and getting to know each other better."
The duo's whirlwind romance took a turn during the lockdown when everyone was shut within their four walls and had to resort to their close ones for comfort. The Flatliners actress posted a picture of herself giving a DIY haircut to the snowboarder. Shaun gave fans a peek of how the haircut turned out by posting a clip, on which he captioned, "My hairstylist said he wouldn't, so she did. #QuarantineCuts."
