Nina was surprised with a trip to Disneyland, which was planned by her boyfriend. The actress had shared a picture in carousel with her friends at Disneyland, in which she’s been holding on to the pole and while being surrounded by her friends.
In the same pose, there was a video where Nina was surprised by her closest friends as they entered her house and surprised her along with her boyfriend. She further said, “I have to say I am hard to surprise” in the caption. Nina shared that she has always known ‘what’s up’ and it’s quite hard to surprise her, but her friends really got her this time. The actress said “I’m still in shock” jokingly in her caption.
The pack of friends she was surrounded with were Aron Paul’s wife Lauren Parsekian, DWTS host Juliana Hough, I Love My Dad star Claudia Sulewski, and Keleigh Sperry, wife of Miles Teller, who brought more joy to her birthday with a surprise visit and Disneyland trip.
The first picture he posted was Nina’s solo picture, where the birthday girl is seen wearing a Mickey Mouse hairband with ‘Birthday Girl’ written on it. Further, there was a video where her closest friends surprised her by visiting her uninformed.
Other pictures included Nina and her friends having fun at Disneyland, along with one where she is holding to a pole in a bus wearing the same hairband and a sash of ‘It’s My F****ing Birthday’ while being surrounded by Shaun, Keleigh, and Claudia.

While appreciating the friends she has, Nina wrote, “When it comes to friends, I definitely hit the jackpot.” And not forgetting her boyfriend, who made everything more special for her. She concluded the caption with, “Huge thank you to my love, @shaunwhite, for orchestrating the whole thing! You sneaky little devil. Love you” while sharing gratitude and love with her boyfriend.
