Sliding into her DMs? Nina Dobrev and Shaun White were spotted getting flirty on Instagram after they sparked dating rumors.

“Winter 2022 for Bulgaria?” Shaun commented on a photo of the Bulgarian beauty posing with a snowboard on April 3. “@shaunwhite Someone’s gotta represent,” she replied with a sunglasses emoji. “Would need a coach …,” she added. Sounds like Nina is trying to recruit the Olympian for some pointers.


Of course, fans were quick to notice the rumored lovers playing coy in the comments. “Thanks for confirming your relationship! Now we know you two are dating,” one user wrote. “Looking at social media — it didn’t take much guess work! Love them together!”

This isn’t the first time Shaun and Nina seemingly appeared to be in cahoots. Weeks before the two were spotted on a scenic bike ride together on March 22, they were seen getting “flirty” during a FaceTime call, an eyewitness exclusively told In Touch.

The onlooker approached the athlete at Shake Shack in the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas while Shaun was on his phone. “I apologized for interrupting his call and he asked if I wanted to say ‘hi’ to the person on the line. He showed me his phone and it was Nina Dobrev! I almost fainted.”

The actress was “waving and looked pretty normal, she was in bed,” the onlooker added. “Shaun sat in the corner and was just talking to her while he was eating. It was really cute. It seemed to me like they were an item — he was smiling the whole time.”

When the rumored couple were seen on a bike ride, many thought they could be shaking up in quarantine together as they were not keeping a social distance. In recent weeks, both celebrities have spoken out about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic

“Hoping everyone is stocked up, quarantined up and is taking the necessary measures to protect themselves and be safe,” Nina wrote to fans via Instagram on March 17. “Wear gloves, wash your hands frequently and practice social distancing. It’s scary out there. But there’s no need to feel helpless. You are not alone.”
