We have some super exciting news for fans of Riverdale. If you’re all about the Betty and Jughead sitch (or “Bughead,” as they’ve fondly been deemed), you’re going to swoon over new reports that the actors who play the beloved characters, Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, are dating IRL.
Speculation has been buzzing around the duo for a while now, first when Sprouse posted a dreamy pic of Reinhart on Instagram in March, then again when he shared another beautiful shot in April. Needless to say, people have been shipping this couple HARD.
The two were together this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, where People reports that Reinhart was seen wearing Sprouse’s maroon blazer (cute!) and that the costars were “canoodling, holding hands, and kissing.”
While this might lead fans to believe that the actors are ready to take their possibly budding romance public, Sprouse has previously made it clear that he’s not into opening up about his relationships. “I am one of those guys that’s never ever going to talk about my private life with the public sphere,” he told Elle in April. “I mean, people can talk about the Jughead as much as they want, but when it comes to the personal relationships, I have spent much of my life separating work and play, so I will continue to do so.”
At least we get to see them together on screen — which makes us even MORE excited for season two of Riverdale.
What do you think about Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart as an IRL couple? Let us know @BritandCo!
