Nina Dobrev: Mom wants me to have kids

Nina Dobrev’s mom thinks she should have kids young.

The Vampire Diaries star has a great career, scooping numerous Teen Choice Awards and a People’s Choice Awards for her role in the show.

And while she’s killing it in Hollywood, her mother has been hinting that she’d like some grandchildren in the near future.

“She’s really glad she had me young,” 25-year-old Nina explained to the German edition of Cosmopolitan.

“She was about as old as I am now and she thinks we wouldn’t have the great relationship we do if she’d been older.”

Nina quickly added that she isn’t interested in family planning yet, but conceded: “My mom is kind of right.”

The actress counts her mother among her best friends. She’s also close to fellow Hollywood star Julianne Hough.

“I love Julianne and I’m so pleased I have her!” she gushed. “She’s very dedicated and not too much of a girly-girl. Our friendship has always had a deeper level.”

When it comes to picking her pals, Nina knows exactly what she’s after: someone with a good sense of humor.

“I’ve spent the whole of today crying with laughter and now everything hurts,” she smiled.

Nina is currently single but she dated her co-star Ian Somerhalder from September 2011 until May last year.

She’s been linked to several Hollywood hunks but insists she’s a free agent. The star even joked about romance rumours while presenting an award with Twilight actor Kellan Lutz at the recent Teen Choice Awards.

When she asked him why he wouldn’t stand close to her he countered he didn’t want anyone thinking he was her boyfriend. Nina then joked she should insist on a “five-foot radius rule”.
