Bughead fans, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are dating IRL, and we have the receipts

Who would’ve thought that Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones could be a great match? They were far from being a couple in the original comic series, but thanks to the CW’s live action version “Riverdale,” this became a surprising twist to the beloved story about the joys and pains of being in high school (with murder, dysfunctional family, and mystery plot to keep things exciting). Lili Reinhart (Betty) and Cole Sprouse (Jughead) had so much palpable chemistry onscreen that they were practically stealing every scene, garnering them the pet name “Bughead.” They’re arguably even more talked about than Archie and Veronica! This is why the two trending stars have been embroiled in dating rumors ever since the pilot episode, but this has been refuted by Cole in an interview with People magazine last year. “The core four of the Riverdale [cast] are now engaged in dating scandals beyond our wildest anticipation. Everyone has something to say about one of us dating our costars, I’m rumored to be dating KJ [Apa], Cami [Mendes], Lili [Reinhart], Madelaine [Petsch], everyone on this show. And I am flattered!”

Their official Instagram accounts, however, tell a different story.

Many fans are speculating that if it’s Instagram official, it must be the real deal, right?


“To the man who has showed me more beautiful places in this past year than I have ever seen in my whole life,” she wrote in the caption. “Happy birthday, Cole. Thank you for all of the adventures and here’s to many more.”

Cole also posts quite a lot of Lili’s photos he took himself:


Several fans googled the meaning of “410” and it turned out to be the number symbolizing an angel. “Angel Number 410 is a message that the angels are available to assist you with your positive thoughts, wishes and desires.”

They look undeniably cozy on set.

The two were caught secretly vacationing in Hawaii together.

Although the two didn’t post pics together in their ‘gram, Lili posted a photo of a scenery in Hawaii while fans were able to take selfies with both of them. They were also spotted taking a dip in the beach.



The biggest proof? Pic of them kissing in the romantic streets of Paris.

Pics or it didn’t happen, as they say. And while the two has kept mum about their relationship (which many will approve anyway), the French paparazzi were quick to catch the two kissing as they roamed around the streets of Paris. It was reported that the cast was there for a Riverdale convention.

But then again, unless the stars admit it officially, we will never really know. Plus Cole himself told People magazine, “People can speculate all they want, people speculate about me with every member of the cast practically, but it’s really no one’s right to know.”
