Looks Like Nina Dobrev Has Moved On From Ian Somerhalder ...

Love: Nina Dobrev May Have Moved On From Ian Somerhalder

... with her best friend's famous brother!

There are probably a whole lot of things to love about being Julianne Hough's BFF. First, she's kind of adorable. Second, free dance lessons! And third, well, have you seen her brother Derek?

The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev, Julianne's actual bestie, certainly has. In fact, word has it she's now hooking up with the newly-minted Emmy winner—with Julianne's blessing, of course.

Sources tell E! News that while the romance is relatively new, it's already "somewhat serious." And judging by several Instagram missives Nina recently posted, she's not shy about making it public.

After Derek won a trophy at Sunday night's Emmy ceremony, Nina posted a photo of him and wrote, "@Derekhough !!!!!!!! #EMMYWINNER I cant express in 140 characters how unbelievably excited+incredibly proud I am of you. You deserve this."

Then she posted a pic of the Hough siblings, saying, "I wish I wasn't filming so I could have been there to celebrate w/u guys!"

And finally, another shot of Derek and his Emmy, captioned, "@derekhough Those of us touched by your light got to watch you brighten up the rest of the world. Keep shining!"

But some of the comments on her posts were a lot less enthusiastic. As you may recall, Nina and her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder used to be an item, and while they amicably split this spring, seems some "Nian" fans aren't ready to let her move on.

"Wow nina *claps hands * finally u got the prince of s--- u deserved!!! Shame on u betraying the nian fandom Like that!!!!" one person wrote. "keep doing this and u will never have anyone's respect!"

But someone else rebutted, "Nina is free to date whoever she wants. She will not date someone just to make fans happy. Don't be stupid and childish."

But never mind all that. Derek had his own reply to Nina's posts: "[You're] the best babe."
