Shaun White Says Girlfriend Nina Dobrev Holds Him to a “High Standard” – Look at Their Dating Timeline
Actor Nina Dobrev and snowboarding legend Shaun White have a relationship that traces back to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pair briefly crossed paths at the Teen Choice Awards in 2012 but weren’t formally introduced until years later in 2019, per People. After months of speculation, Dobrev and White made their relationship Instagram official in April 2020 after the “Perks of Being a Wallflower” star shared a post of the two playfully washing groceries at home. The couple ended up quarantining together and shared a number of their activities on social media, including going on road trips together and Dobrev giving White a haircut.
From 2020 onward, Dobrev and White have been open about their relationship and haven’t shied away from gushing about one another, with the gold medalist telling People in October 2021, “Nina’s incredible. What an influence on my life. Not only does she run her own show, her own world, companies she’s involved in, things she’s producing, all this stuff going on. She holds me to this same high standard which is so wonderful to have in a partner.”
