Bugheads! Are Riverdale stars Cole & Lili really that thirsty for each other?

Are Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart dating? Riverdale stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart AKA Jughead and Betty seem to be the new "it" couple and people are living for these dating and relationship rumors — although it took some time to get there. The duo left fans wondering "are they" or "aren't they" when romantic Hawaiian vacation photos surfaced back in January.The couple's onscreen romance heated up in their Netflix show Riverdale but offscreen, the relationship was a lot more hush-hush and Bughead fans went into P.I. mode trying to figure out if the two were as hot and heavy off the show as they were on. 

Sprouse has even said, "I'm one of those guys that's never ever going to talk about my private life with the public sphere. People can talk about the Jughead as much as they want but when it comes to the personal relationships, I have spent much of my life separating work and play so I will continue to do so."

Hmm. Very wise Cole but still, relationship speculation continues, especially since recent Hawaii photos (see below) shows them having one heck of a romantic time frolicking on the beach. 

The Cole Sprouse Lili Reinhart dating rumors began back in March when Cole shared a stunning photo of Lili sitting in a field of flowers on his Instagram — possibly because she is his muse? Maybe.

Soon, diehard Riverdale and Cole Sprouse fans began to dissect more and more of their social media and uncovered a lot of flirting between the two.

But Cole's not the the only one who's tight-lipped about the relationship. Lili states, “People are just dying to know information about if I’m in a relationship or not. I understand the interest, but it’s called a 'private life' for a reason. And it’s not something that I owe the world."

However, relationship fervor hit a fever pitch when the extremely private couple was spotted kissing in public earlier this month while on a press trip in Paris. Oui-oui! 

So...are they? Or aren't they? Let's unpack the Cole Sprouse Lili Reinhart secret relationship rumors: 

1. Their Riverdale castmates clearly see the chemistry.

The Riverdale cast is very tight-knit so it makes sense that they would know more about Cole and Lili than the general public. Cole's own TV father, Skeet Ulrich, made his own statement when asked about the Cole and Lili IRL dating rumors. "They have great chemistry and they've been at our house with a lot of the Riverdale people and they always enjoy each other's company. So I wish them the best."

He also said that when Cole and Lili interact onscreen it seems like they've been friends for years which is potentially a sign of a blossoming romance.

2. Lili is very open about her mental health — which is why she values relationship privacy.

Lili has shared in the past that she's struggled with depression and social anxiety throughout her life, which could be why she wants to keep her private life private. Public scrutiny might be tough for her. She is vocal about her struggles on Twitter, saying  "Your mental health should be your priority. Don't forget that. This is your life.. and you've only got one. So don't waste it by being sad." She also says she has never been ashamed about being upfront about these emotional challenges. She's even said she got cast on Riverdale while she was going through one of the hardest depression periods in her life and that the show ultimately saved her.

3. Lili and Cole's co-stars agree everyone needs to lay off.

While the whole cast was on stage answering questions at PaleyFest, one fan decided to ask the question everyone has been wondering. As you can imagine, this didn't make the Riverdale actors too happy. Even though Cole played it cool when asked straight-up if he was dating Lili by answering "no comment", Madeline Petsch who plays Cheryl Blossom commented that the question was "inappropriate". Fans on Twitter agreed — and even though everyone is dying to know the answer, the proper thing would be to find out when the couple is ready to tell us themselves.

4. Cole and Lili fans call themselves "bugheads."

Every fandom seems to have their own nickname (#larry, anyone? Harry Styles + Louis Tomlinson!) and the recent interest in the relationship between real-life Betty and Jughead is no exception. Self-proclaimed Bugheads are extremely dedicated to the couple's romance and are very vocal about hoping the relationship rumors are true. There's even a popular Twitter account dedicated to the status of Cole and Lili.

5. Cole and Lili recently skipped Coachella and took a vacation to Mexico.

The pair didn't seem to be sad to miss too much of the action at Coachella this year. Instead, they took an amazing trip to a Mexican resort. The pair shared plenty of photos on social media which prompted travel envy from everyone. And come on! it's obvious they are together on the trip just from looking at the steamy pictures.
