It’s Met Gala Monday, and you know what that means! Time to stalk all of your favorite celebrities as they strut their stuff on the red carpet. Fan-favorites Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse were among the first celebs to enter The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, and Riverdale fans were ecstatic to see their fav duo make their red carpet debut as a couple!
Lili looked gorgeous wearing a bedazzled gold and silver dress, while Cole rocked a tux and bow tie. The two have been denying their relationship for a while now, but the pics don’t lie. They finally went public, proving Bughead is alive and well.
Their romance started back in February 2017 when they were caught flirting on social media. Fans picked up on the PDA and began shipping them — hard. Cole – who’s a budding photographer – posted photos of Lili on his Instagram, fueling the dating rumors even further. After Riverdale fans fell in love with their on-screen chemistry as Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper, it was clear everyone wanted the two to be #InstagramOfficial. Since then, the pair have been seen together packing on the PDA and going on romantic getaways.
About a month ago, a fan even asked them straight up if they were dating during a Paley Fest panel — and the video is beyond cringeworthy. “Um, so Cole and Lili, there’s been a lot of rumors about you guys dating,” a fan said in front of the entire audience. “Are you dating?” Lili immediately looked uncomfortable, covering her face with her hands. Cole ended up telling her “no comment,” which is as close to a “yes” as we’ll get.
Even though Lili and Cole are choosing to keep their love life on the DL, they’re still relationship goals in our eyes.
