I think it’s safe to say that Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are dating. The two Riverdale stars kept their rumored relationship tight-lipped for months, but after making their red-carpet debut at this year’s Met Gala, they’ve been more relaxed when it comes to talking and posting about each other on social media. If you want proof of this, look no further than Sprouse’s birthday message to Reinhart (she turns 22 today), which features a topless photo of her.
“Both the birthday and the gift. My little muse, happy birthday my love,” Sprouse wrote in an Instagram caption on Thursday (September 13). Alongside it is a grainy photo of Reinhart staring into a mirror. Check out the post for yourself, below:
Reinhart posted an equally-as-sweet post for Sprouse on August 4 (his birthday). “It seems as if the world would still be a stranger to me, if not for you. I’m so thankful that our paths intertwined to form this beautiful adventure~Happy birthday, my love,” she wrote on Instagram, adding a photo of Sprouse in a white tank top and shorts.
News that Reinhart and Sprouse were an item first broke last summer, but neither commented on it for the longest time. In fact, Reinhart wrote a Tumblr post last October criticizing the way fans and the media pick apart her personal life.
“It’s horrifying how invested some people are in my love life. Emphasis on ‘my.’ It is mine. It is private,” she wrote. “If a stranger’s love life is causing you anger, frustration or anxiety…please reevaluate your priorities.”
If anything, it seems the two of them are no longer afraid to share their affection for one another. Happy birthday, Lili!
