Shaun White and Nina Dobrev began dating in April 2020 and have been inseparable since. Continue reading to find out more about the Olympic snowboarder’s relationship with The Vampire Diaries actress.
Shaun White and Nina Dobrev met through a mutual friend.
In 2019, the Degrassi alum and the San Diego, California native met at an event in Florida. While Shaun and Nina started dating in April 2020, they didn’t make their Instagram relationship public until May of that year.
Are Shaun White and Nina Dobrev engaged?
No way… not now! Fans, on the other hand, believe the gold medalist will propose any day now. Fans were taken aback when the athlete brought his mother, Cathy White, to the 2022 Oscars in March of that year.
Shaun spent a lot of time on TikTok interacting with fans while competing at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. Nina was unable to attend the games due to COVID-19 restrictions, he revealed in a post in February 2022.
Nonetheless, the Sofia, Bulgaria native made a point of cheering her beau on from afar! “I’ve been looking for these photos.” “Nina hid all of these [photos] in my bag, shoes, carry-on, and overnight case with pictures of friends and family,” Shaun explained. “Everyone back home is sending me little notes to let me know they’re rooting for me from afar, which is fantastic… I miss everyone and wanted to say hello, thank you for your support, and I hope to see you all again soon… I’m missing you. “I’ll be home shortly.”
Nina took to Instagram on the eve of Shaun’s final Olympic competition to give him a special shout-out. “Did I mention I’ve already won gold with you?” “Show ’em how it’s done, you f–king stud,” she captioned a photo of the two on the slopes.
Of course, fans jumped at the chance to persuade Shaun to pop the question! “Please marry,” one user said. “It’s time for a ring,” someone else said.
Nina was extremely proud of Shaun despite his fourth-place finish. Shaun’s family congratulated him via video call, and the Love Hard star was front-and-centre.
Previous Relationships of Shaun White:
Sarah Barthel (2013 – 2019)
Sarah Barthel, the lead singer of the musical duo Phantogram, began dating White in 2013. White and Barthel were notoriously private about their relationship. White only spoke about his relationship with Barthel once during their six-year relationship, in a 2019 interview with the Sydney Morning Herald.
White revealed at the time that the couple first met as unlikely friends and then fell in love. “I was in New York looking for an apartment and ran into her backstage at Saturday Night Live.” “She told me to call her if I wanted her to show me around,” he told the newspaper. “I didn’t want to be in a long-term relationship and wasn’t looking for anything serious,” she says, “but we started off slowly and became friends.”
As the saying goes, the rest is history. White gushed about his then-girlfriend, calling her a “genuine and beautiful person,” in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald. While it’s unknown what caused their breakup, White did mention that their schedules kept them busy. “I travel a lot, and she travels a lot, but we try to keep it together,” he said, before adding, “I’m not in the kids-and-marriage headspace right now, but one day.” Being around her has taught me how to be a good friend. My entire life has revolved around myself, my work, and my objectives. It’s always interesting to learn about other people and their activities.”
Arielle Vandenberg (2011)
White sparked dating rumours with Love Island host Arielle Vandenberg in 2011 after they were seen out together several times. In one case, the couple was photographed looking rather cosy at the Coachella Music Festival, but their relationship was never officially confirmed.
Lindsay Lohan (2006)
During a night out in New York City in 2006, White was spotted with Lindsay Lohan. They met at Bungalow 8, where White claims they got to know each other a little better.
“We ended up meeting at the well-known Bungalow 8.” It was a pleasant occasion. According to AceShowbiz, he said, “It was an adventure.” “Everyone has been running up to me since I returned from Italy, saying how proud they are of me. It’s been crazy, so I needed some fun time.” While the two were linked and rumoured to be dating at the time, White never confirmed their relationship.
