Nina Dobrev and Austin Stowell may have confirmed their romance only a few days ago, however, sources are now revealing how Hollywood's newest couple came to be. According to friends close to "The Vampire Diaries" actress, Selena Gomez played matchmaker for her close friend and costar.

Hollywood Life reports that after Gomez worked alongside Stowell in their new film, "In Dubious Battle," the songstress encouraged her new friend to ask Dobrev out on a date.

"Selena and Austin became close friends while filming 'In Dubious Battle' in Atlanta. It was Selena who went on and on about how wonderful and beautiful and talented Nina is," the source began, "Austin and Nina are both signed to the same agency CAA and has crossed paths before, but it wasn't until spending time in Atlanta that they really got to know each other."
