Luckily, his sister Julianne was there to cheer him on, but one important person missing was Vampire Diariesstar Nina Dobrev, who is a close friend of the Houghs. But don’t worry— Nina took to Twitter to share some love with her best friend.
“@Derekhough!!!!!!!! #EMMYWINNER I can’t express in 140 characters how unbelievably excited+incredibly proud I am of you. You deserve this :)” she wrote on Monday morning. She later added, “@juleshough You looked absolutely STUNNING last night ! @derekhough I wish I wasnt filming so I could have been there to celebrate w/u guys!” Aww!
Lastly, she wrote, “@derekhough Those of us touched by your light got to watch you brighten up the rest of the world. Keep shining!” And it didn’t take long for Derek to respond to that one! “You’re the best babe,” he tweeted just an hour later.
After unearthing a video of Derek and Nina holding hands, there’s a lot of speculation as to whether or not this friendship is actually more of a relationship. While there’s no confirmation yet, we’re having a feels attack over here. We support them whether they’re besties or if they’re lovebirds, and these congratulatory tweets are adorable either way.
What do you think about Nina and Derek’s cute Twitter conversation: too adorable, or just signs of being super besties? Hit the comments and weigh in!
