Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse: Relationship timeline
Lili and Cole were sneaky when they first got together.
Although their characters in the hit CW show first got together in season 1, it was a long time before that they confirmed they were dating in real life. They only made their first red carpet appearance together as a couple at the 2018 Met Gala.
The first rumour of romance sparked in July 2017, when Cole shared a photograph he took of Lili lying in a field of flowers to his Instagram (above).
Cole is a talented photographer when he’s not acting and has shot for fashion magazines including Elle USA. But while he has shot models such as Kendall Jenner, it was Lili who became his muse.
Over the past two years he has shot gorgeous images of Lili and in an Instagram post dedicated to her on her birthday on September 13th, 2018 he said: “Both the birthday and the gift. My little muse, happy birthday my love.”
The image now has almost 7 million likes!

And the exes were all smiles at Riverdale’s Comic-Con panel!
They were both promoting the upcoming fourth series of the mystery teen drama and were more than happy to sit right next to each other to gossip about the brand new season.
Lili even jokingly shared a snap of the two of them with co-star KJ Apa to her Instagram, so there can’t be too much bad blood between them.
In fact, Instagram suggests they’re more than just friends...
Whether or not they have actually split is still unclear.
Both Lili and Cole continue to share snaps of each other to their Instagrams while also commenting on each other’s pictures. Either they’re more than just friends, or they’re incredibly good at getting over a breakup!
E!’s insider went on to say that “it’s unclear where things stand, but it seems [like] they could be heading back in the direction of getting together”. And from where we’re sitting, it looks like they’re definitely more than just friends.
