The Vampire Diaries Cast's Real-Life Couples

"The Vampire Diaries" premiered for eight seasons and 171 episodes, and, although it ended two years ago, many still love the series' cast and want to know more about them. 

Although a fictional tale, "The Vampire Diaries" quickly captured their viewers' hearts with the blend of romance, friendship, family, and an adventure rolled into one show.

Fans were quickly intrigued by the actors and actresses behind the characters and their real-life partners, especially since Damon and Elena's on-screen romance turned into true love for the stars.

Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore

Let's start with the youngest of the Salvatore brothers, played by Paul Wesley. If you thought Stefan's love life was a mess, you have not heard about Paul's affairs and romances. 

Paul’s first wife was his co-star on "The Vampire Diaries," Dr. Meredith Fell, played by Torrey DeVitto. The two first met on the set of “Killer Movie,” where despite its low ratings, had  famous faces like Kaley Cuoco and Leighton Meester.

When Paul got cast in Vampire Diaries, he and Torrey had to live 2000 miles away from each other, so it truly was a gift of fate when Torrey got cast in the same TV series as him.

 However, this didn't save their marriage, and for reasons we don't know, Paul and Torrey got divorced. In the winter of 2013, Paul was officially single.

When Phoebe Tonkin first appeared at the onset of the fourth season of “The Vampire Diaries,” Paul noticed her right away. Their relationship was hardly an easy one, as the two broke up and made up all the time. 

The press did not tire of updating readers about Paul and Phoebe's relationship status, until the two broke it off for good, after four and a half years of dating.

About a year ago, we learned the news that Paul Wesley was spotted on a date with a mysterious stranger, but didn't pay it much attention, as it didn't seem very serious. 

But we were wrong since it did turn out to be more serious than we thought. In less than two years after his break up with Tonkin, Paul Wesley secretly got married to her.

Most likely, you haven't heard of the name Ines de Ramon, because unlike her husband, she is not a celebrity, and leads a normal life, enjoying her husband's social circle.

As you remember from the series, Stefan didn't stay single either, as, in the end, he found just the right girl for him – a beautiful and charismatic blonde who we all love.

Candice King aka Caroline Forbes

Candice King took the role of Caroline Forbes on the series. The actress dated the person who her character had a complicated relationship with --  Zach Roerig, who plays the role of Matt Donovan.

Their relationship was hidden from the public, so the only thing we know is that it lasted for only a year. Candice met her current husband, Joe King, in 2011the same year she and Zach were together.

Despite suspicions, the story of how Candice and Joe met is very romantic. The pair first crossed paths at a Super Bowl event in February 2011 and started dating thanks to Candice's co-star and friend Nina Dobrev.

Candice was too shy to approach Joe, so Nina did it for her and gave him Candice's phone number. Of course, Joe called her, and so began their cute relationship.

Several years later, Joe proposed to his beloved and she gladly agreed. Their wedding ceremony looked magical and many of Candice's co-stars were invited -- but not all of them. Zach Roerig, for reasons unknown, did not make the guest list.

Now, the actress is enjoying family life and spends her time traveling. About four years ago, Candice gave birth to her first child, a beautiful girl, Florence May.

Zach Roerig aka Matt Donovan

Since we mentioned Zach Roerig so many times, it's time to cover his love life as well. We don't expect you to be shocked if you learn that he met another one of his girlfriends on the set of “The Vampire Diaries.” 

There must have been something in the air while they were filming the series since so many couples were formed during the process. The second time Zach laid his eyes on a colleague, it happened to be Nathalie Kelley, who you might remember from her small role as Sybil.

Rumors of their romance started in 2016, but they barely got any attention until Zach posted their photo together. Nathalie also shared a photo with her beloved making their relationship official. 

To the fans' disappointment, their relationship didn't last long. In just over a year, the couple announced their break up. Despite all of his previous affairs, Zach's heart belongs to one single woman.

Of course, we are talking about his wonderful daughter. She is such a precious girl, but behind her cute smile hides a troubling childhood.

The girl's mother, Alanna Turner is currently serving her time for several crimes. Surprisingly, she even used to be the actor's wife. Alanna gave birth to the child right in the prison, which explains why Zach requested full guardianship over his daughter.

Kat Graham aka Bonnie Bennett

We are talking about the witch named Bonnie, played by the one and only, Kat Graham. An actress, a singer, a dancer, and maybe a bit of a witch, all in one. In her life, Kat had one very serious relationship, which sadly ended in a break-up. 

Kat Graham and the actor Cottrell Guidry dated for a very long time before announcing their engagement in 2012. Sadly, their relationship didn't make it through to the wedding, since two years after the engagement, it became known that the couple separated.

After their breakup, there were rumors of Kat's relationship with Jay Pharoah, but neither of them verified this as being true.  

There have been rumors that Kat is now dating cinematographer Darren Genet. But it’s unclear how long the couple has been together.

Genet directed a few episodes of The Vampire Diaries and worked on the sets of the shows "Legacies," "Timeless," "Good Girls," "The Originals," "SI: Miami" and others. Additionally, Darren and Kat have worked on a few projects together - they filmed a music video for the song Secrets and the three-part MUSE project.

There aren't many photographs of them together on social media. Anyway, Kat shared a couple of Darren’s portraits on her Instagram.

Steven R. McQueen aka Jeremy Gilbert

The youngest Gilbert, Steven R. McQueen is by far the most scandalous actor in this cast. His list of girlfriends will impress anyone. 

For two and a half years, Steven was in a relationship with Hillary Harley, but they broke up. Later, after a few months, he was seen with model Dylan Penn and then changed over to Olivia Pickren. As far as we know, the last of his love interests was the model Allie Silva. Let's talk about this name in particular.

Their relationship seemed ideal. The couple couldn't get enough of one another and then in a year's time, they announced their engagement on his Instagram.

Of course, after the news came out, everyone started asking about wedding dates, to which Steven replied: "You know what? Actually, we called it off." Later on, many of their fans noticed that both Instagram posts were deleted from the lovers' accounts. 

Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore

They say that the chemistry between Damon and Elena was so strong on-screen that producers just had to turn them into a couple. Can you imagine that without the fans, we would have never seen Delena on screen!

It goes without saying that when Ian and Nina announced back in 2011 that they were a pair, it didn't come as a big surprise. Their relationship really looked perfect and didn't just please the couple, but also their devoted fans.

Everything ended abruptly in three years' time when the two announced their split. Shockingly, they somehow remained friends after breaking up.

Not only does Nina speak about Ian on good terms, but she's also friends with his current wife, actress Nikki Reed. What's more, Nina was the one who introduced Ian to Nikki.

Nikki and Nina seem to have always been friends and even filmed a PSA together for Obamacare in 2014. At the time when Ian Somerhalder was dating Nina Dobrev, Nikki Reed was married to Paul McDonald.

The two couples went on a double date and that's when Ian and Nikki felt a spark between them. The two of them began their exciting new relationship about half a year after the real-life Delena fell apart. A couple of months later, Nikki and Ian announced that they got engaged and soon enough got married

Two years into their marriage, Nikki gave birth to Bodhi Soleil, and from their social media, their family looks as happy as ever.

Nina Dobrev aka Elena Gilbert, Katherine Pierce and Amara 

After breaking up with Ian, Nina was together with the “Scream Queens” star Glen Powell for some time. They attended important events together, like birthday parties and his best friend's wedding. 

However, after only months of dating, the pair drifted apart due to their uncompromising schedules. Her last boyfriend's name was Grant Mellon.

He was a screenwriter and director. Even though their relationship seemed serious, the actress kept it hidden from social media. Reportedly they've split up after nearly a year of dating

So what do you think, was the atmosphere on the set of Vampire Diaries really that romantic or did all these affairs happen by coincidence?
