Lili Reinhart Finally Confirms She’s Dating Cole Sprouse IRL…Well, Kinda

By  | 

At this point, basically everyone is aware that Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are dating IRL. The Riverdale co-stars have been dropping hints for months now, but ~confirmation~ of their relationship came earlier this week when they were seen holding hands and — wait for it — KISSING on a busy street in Paris, France.

So, Sprousehart confirmed? Basically…but if you still need further evidence that the actors are a couple when the cameras stop rolling, too, look no further than the 21-year-old actress herself.

TMZ cameras caught Lili and Cole as they arrived back in Los Angeles from their romantic Paris getaway and paparazzi obviously couldn’t help but question them about what happened in the City of Love.

One paparazzo asked, “Do you think it’s a bigger decision for a celebrity couple to go public than just a normal person like me? Is it a bigger decision to let the world in?”

The blonde smirked in response but tried her best to keep her mouth shut. But after some prodding from the camera man, the actress responded, “It’s an obvious answer. It’s obvious to me.”

So while it’s not like Lilz straight-up said, “HI MY NAME IS LILI REINHART AND I AM DATING COLE SPROUSE,” she said the romance is “obvious,” which is all the confirmation we need…ESPECIALLY since she previously said she’d never confirm a relationship.

“I’m not at a point in my life where I’m ready to openly confirm, deny, or talk about a relationship that I’m in, because I think it’s brutal to have a relationship in the spotlight where I can be scrutinized by anyone and everyone,” she told V magazine. “Being in a relationship with someone, it’s a relationship between those two people and I feel like when you let enough people in, it’s not about those two people anymore. It’s about everyone.”
