Nina Dobrev and snowboarder beau Shaun White hold hands in NYC… after laughing off engagement rumors
Nina Dobrev and her snowboarder boyfriend Shaun White looked cozy as ever when they surfaced in New York City this weekend.
The 34-year-old Vampire Diaries actress cut an elegant figure in a fitted orange dress that emphasized her enviably slender frame.
With a square neckline and short sleeves that brought back memories of the 1950s, the outfit also featured a slit that allowed her to show off her slender legs.
Wearing her curtains of dark hair down, she sported a bit of fringe and shielded her eyes from the rays with a pair of shades.
She glowed with romantic bliss as she held hands with her beau, who went for a summery pair of white trousers that matched his t-shirt.

Shaun threw on a short-sleeved open shirt with a trendy geometric print and lent a splash of glitz to the look with a couple of necklaces.
The couple’s latest outing comes after Shaun hailed Nina as ‘incredible’ while promoting his new Max docuseries Shaun White: The Last Run.
‘She’s just been so supportive and having her in my corner for this chapter in my life where I’m retired and looking for what’s next,’ he told Extra.
‘And even making this documentary, I was like: “Can you help me? This isn’t my world. I don’t know the film industry. I don’t know what to ask for, what to do.”‘
Shaun, who gave up snowboarding after last year’s Beijing Olympics, explained: ‘This was actually a three-part series, and it wasn’t fitting in all the episodes.’
Leaping to the rescue, Nina ‘was like: “You need to call this person, you need to talk to that, you need to ask for this.”‘
Shaun rhapsodized about his girlfriend having been ‘been so helpful in so many ways in my life. I’m feeling very blessed and thankful to have her in my corner.’
Nina and Shaun have been trailed by a recent swarm of engagement rumors, which he addressed in his new interview.

‘We’re just taking our time and seeing what life has to offer right now,’ he said. ‘But yeah, we kind of laugh when we see these headlines pop up.’
Now that his snowboarding career is in the rearview, Shaun revealed that a healthy dose of travel is also on his agenda.
‘I said: “I’m gonna retire, line it up. Let’s go! I want to experience some places and things I’ve never done. And really enjoy this moment of nothingness,”‘ he shared.
The dynamic duo first struck up their romance in 2020 and reportedly went into isolation together during the coronavirus lockdowns.
Nina’s dating history includes her The Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder, who has since married Twilight actress Nikki Reed.
