Vampire Diaries co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder went public with their off-screen romance at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada on Sunday (19Jun11) by turning up to the event hand-in-hand.
The stars, who play lovers in the supernatural TV hit, sparked speculation they are together after they were snapped enjoying a romantic stroll in Paris, France.
And the pair, who have reportedly been dating for a year, showed they were ready to make their romance known with a display of affection at the awards ceremony.
Asked by reporters which act he was most looking forward to seeing, Somerhalder cheekily replied, "Who am I most excited to see tonight? Nina Dobrev!"
