Riverdale's Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones, AKA Bughead, AKA Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have been dating one another for, well, it remains unconfirmed, but over two years and counting and seem pretty much head over heels for each other.

The two haven't been posting any cryptic-yet-very loved up snaps since the new year but the pair are still very much on, just choosing to carry on living their relationship outside of the public eye.

As teh new year rolls in, we can't wait for more moody shots of Lili in fields on Cole's photography themed Instagram page.

The Riverdale duo not only spent the holiday season together with Lili's family, but Lili couldn't help but step into Comments By Celebs comments to declare she's found herself a man with the impossible three qualities: 'good d*** game', 'a height above 5'9', 'no ho*s', and 'common sense.'

Cole also found the time to put out a shout out to his 'mommy wide thighs' and honestly we get more jealous of their relationship by the second.

September, 2018

They actually talk about each other and they're in the same room!

Glamour got the Riverdale gang together to do some friendship exercises, where we got a rare glimpse into Lili & Cole's 'friendship' and NGL, they were the cutest things ever.

On their first impressions of each other, Cole said: "Lili was a tough egg to crack, she was very shy at first and reserved [...] and she's one of those people that consistently pushes me to be better at the arts that I'm pursuing".

Lili, somewhat harsher in her opinions, admitted: "My first impression [of Cole] was, that guy's got an annoying voice, and now it's grown on me I guess".

"[He's] is one of the smartest...THE smartest person that I'm friends with, he's incredibly passionate about art about photography, about acting and I really admire that".


September 2018

Cole wishes Lili a happy birthday with this photograph, saying: "Happy birthday my love". We all know what he means, she's his love - read between the lines guys.

July 2018

A magazine asked Lili about her relationship with Cole and it's safe to say the actress was not here for it.

"I'm not okay talking about my relationship,” Lili told Harpers Bazaar “I'm not going to tell you my love story. That's just not appropriate right now."

May 2018

Did... someone say Met Gala?

We did. Because we're obsessed with it. You know what else we're obsessed with? Two Riverdale stars who may or may not be in a serious relationship turning up dressed to the nines, arm in arm, looking very loved up.

The pictures are coming thick and fast, some may even say Lili is his muse, something Cole hinted at when talking to People magazine about photography:

"I think sexuality and foreplay are deeply intermingled with romance and setting and all of that and, thankfully, when you’re a photographer, you are consistently in the most beautiful settings with people that you really care about, so it’s a deeply sexy thing, it’s a sexy relationship to have with artistry and environment and romance in general".

See below.

November, 2017

Cole firmly answers 'No comment' when asked about their relationship status, only he does it in a rather thespian-like way, repsonding to an interviewer:

"I think that in many ways it's offensive and an invasion of privacy, but it's also a badge of honour because it means you're creating a chemistry on screen that is so understandable that people want to see it in real life, which is flattering from a professional perspective."

Offensive, yet flattering, what a rollercoaster of emotions.

April 2017

Yes, Cole's been posting snaps of Lili since April 2017, real artsy ones too.

August 2016

Looking young AF, Lili posted this birthday snap for her 'pal' Cole which is all the way back in the filming for series 1 when they probs genuinely were just friends!
