The two also attended a dinner last week with winners of a Kind Campaign fundraiser.

All mere coincidences?

Dobrev hasn't had a serious relationship breaking up with Somerhalder in 2013. She recently spoke about her ex's spring wedding to Reed.

"When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful," she told E! News, exhibiting no hard feelings. "They look happy and I am happy and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that."

Could Stowell be the reason she's so "happy"?
