Are Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder dating? "The Vampire Diaries" stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are warming up to each other in the City of Lights. The two were caught publicly displaying affection this week while vacationing in Paris.

Dobrev, 22, and Somerhalder, 32, went to the Saint Germain des Pres with their mothers and later dined at a local bar together, US Weekly reported. See the photos here.

"Just go up, first day in Paris with no work must go play a bit,its healthy:) Thank you for the warm welcome everyone here,its really amazing," Somerhalder tweeted during the trip.

"The Vampire Diaries" stars were rumored to have been dating for a while, but neither pretty party has 'fessed up to a relationship. Déjà vu RPattz and KStew? Hmm.

The pair partied at Coachella in April and attended the White House Correspondents' dinner earlier this month before hitting the CW upfronts in New York last week.

It's only natural to think that Dobrev would be dating one of her costars. She plays the dual role of Elena/Katherine, which offers up ample screen time for her with Somerhalder and Paul Wesley as love interests on the CW show.

"We expected the rumors. Like, if I wasn't dating Ian, I'd be dating Paul," Dobrev said in April's Teen Vogue. "A lot of people who work together end up dating, so it wouldn't be unusual, but I've never dated anyone I've worked with."

Perhaps that remains to be seen. Just ask Anna Paquin and Steve Moyer.
