While other stars are posing for photographers on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival, the star of The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev, enjoys relaxing on the Cote d’Azur in the company of her beloved Grant Mellon, not hiding from camera lenses.

The relationship between the actress and the young director became known in February of this year, but over the past months, lovers have tried not to advertise their romance. Obviously, the romantic atmosphere of the French Riviera turned the couple’s head, as the paparazzi managed to capture Nina in the arms of her lover. Not embarrassed by the photographers, Dobrev sat on Mellon’s lap, smiled at the photographers, and even greeted the fans.

It is not known how long the relationship between Nina and Grant lasts, but it is known that the director was at the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the actress in January, where she presented it to her friends. According to a source from the inner circle Dobrev, Mellon liked the close lover and was approved by her best friend Julianne Hough. And although the insider assured that the star is afraid of spoiling relations with her boyfriend by publicity, probably between lovers now everything is serious, since they no longer try to hide from the fans and the paparazzi.
