Aside from loving Bughead, fans of Riverdale from across the globe also seem to love the fact that Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are an actual couple. They’ve done everything from posting gushy birthday messages to wearing matching Halloween costumes – without ever referring to the status of their relationship. It’s safe to say that these two are masters of keeping their relationship on the down low.

In a new interview with People, the former Disney Channel star is explaining just why. When asked directly if he was dating Lili, his response was, “no comment. Because whether you dismiss those rumors or whether you encourage those rumors, it’s giving people who are in my opinion are a bit entitled to your personal life more power, and you have to have spaces for reverence in the industry.”

“The more you let people in on that, the more people feel entitled to it and the more it becomes problematic with whoever you end up being with in the future, so I take that very seriously. So I just never talk about it because it’s not anyone’s right to know. People can speculate all they want, people speculate about me with every member of the cast practically, but it’s really no one’s right to know. It’s also sexy, these parts of the relationships that are just yours,” he continued to say.

At the end of the day, Cole is totally right. His status with Lili is just their business since they are the only two people in the actual relationship. Still, it must be flattering for them both to know that fans totally love the fact that like their television counterparts, they found love with one another off-screen. For now, we’ll just take their cute social media posts as signs as confirmation that they’re head over heels for one another.
