Are they or aren't they? Multiple reports suggest that AMC's The Walking Dead co-stars Norman Reedus, who stars as fan favorite character Daryl Dixon, and Emily Kinney, who played the ill-fated Beth Greene, are dating in real life after having a season-long flirtation and friendship onscreen.

Sources told Us Weekly"They had a connection early on in the show, but the romance developed recently. They're still pretty guarded about it."

Cute, right? But not so fast Bethyl shippers: TMZ reports that Reedus and Emily are just good pals who hang out occasionally and platonically, so maybe don't celebrate a real life Daryl Dixon-Beth Greene love affair just yet. Only time (and gossip rags) will tell whether or not Kinney and Reedus are the real deal, but in the meantime, let's celebrate and reflect on everything that made the best almost TV romance on TV so adorable: Daryl Dixon and Beth Greene's bizarre, apocalyptic courtship.

Daryl Dixon forces Beth Greene to be independent for the first time in her entire life.
