Celebrating her own 25th anniversary, Nina Dobrev spent her big day with best friend, Julianne Hough and Ian Somerhalder on Thursday (January 9).

Sharing a photo of the occasion, "The Vampire Diaries" creator Kevin Williamson posted of the three of them getting close and smiling around the now-25-year-old's birthday cake.

The simple post read, "Happy Birthday," and featured the trio huddling together around the beautifully decorated cake, with Nina looking pleasantly surprised!

In related news, Nina and co-star, and former ex, Ian shared a friendly kiss after winning Best Onscreen Chemistry at the People’s Choice Awards. Things remain cool for now, but we'll see what happens between them in the future!
