Riverdale‘s cutest couple (fight me, Varchie shippers) are *officially* dating in real life.
Yes, yes, this has been known for some time, but until now we had no definitive proof of Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart’s relationship.

This changed earlier today when the couple was photographed kissing in a Parisian restaurant. Sprouse, 25, and Reinhart, 21, were in the City of Love to participate in Rivercon, a French Riverdale convention. The duo was also seen sharing some PDA on a sidewalk.
In the past, the two have played coy while discussing their relationship, and rarely reference one another on social media. Reinhart did, however, share a pic of a glimmering Eiffel Tower on Snapchat.
Earlier this year, Sprouse and Reinhart were photographed on a beach in Hawaii looking very couple-like, but alas, there was still a seed of platonic doubt. That is, until now.

The two Riverdale stars have been adamant about not sharing relationship details. (It’s perhaps why it’s taken so long to confirm they are indeed an item.)
“It’s horrifying how invested some people are in my love life,” Reinhart wrote in a previous Tumblr post. “Emphasis on ‘my.’ It is mine. It is private.”
In November, Sprouse told People, “Whether you dismiss those rumors or whether you encourage those rumors, it’s giving people who are in my opinion are a bit entitled to your personal life more power, and you have to have spaces for reverence in the industry.”
Well if you’re reading this, Lili and/or Cole, just know we appreciate your relationship in a totally normal, non-entitled way.
