Additionally, no hints of a partner could be found on her Instagram handle. She has only posted pictures of her day-to-day life, family, and profession. The only thing her social media handle proved was that she likes to share aesthetic nature pictures.
To conclude, it could only be said that Van Dien isn’t dating a boyfriend as of this moment. It seems like she is giving most of her focus to building a successful acting career. And even if she has a boyfriend, that will remain unknown until she reveals anything to the public.

But it seemed to change after they worked together on the 2020 short movie titled Monsters and Muses. In the short movie, Van Dien served as the director and Paolo worked as the writer.
