Dance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler and Australian cutie Jack Kelly just celebrated their 8 month anniversary. They are super cute together and seem really confident in their love. So confident, in fact, that Maddie isn’t even jealous of other girls trying to flirt with Jack. Well, she hasn’t said that, at least. What she is jealous of though are other lucky ladies that get to go on dates with Zac Efron. WHAT THE. Okay, we know what you’re thinking. Where in the world did that come from?? Literally, we didn’t expect that, either.
But, yes, she’s talking about THAT Zac Efron. The Zac that totally won over our hearts over a decade ago when he nailed the role of Troy Bolton in High School Musical. Maddie may have been just a toddler at the time, but she’s come to love him over him.
The dancer chatted with Teen Vogue in a new video where she revealed 30 facts about herself. She said, “I love movies with Zac Efron but I get jealous of the girls that he gets to date because I want to be the girl.” SAME, girl, same. While Maddie has yet to collaborate with Zac or properly meet him and snag a selfie that will be cherished forever, their paths could potentially cross very soon. Now that Maddie is getting into the movie and television world – she voices a character in the new animated film Leap! and played a role in The Book of Henry – it’s possible they could maybe work together someday. Maddie has also made an appearance on Pretty Little Liars and a was a judge on So You Think You Can Dance.
To be honest, we don’t think Maddie and Zac are going to ever have a romantic relationship. He IS 29 years old which means he’s got a solid 14 years on her, so it’s just a case of dreaming about your Number 1 celeb crush. BUT, there is a good chance that Zac will see this video and reach out to Maddie. Remember when he found out Olympic gymnast Simone Biles was absolutely head over heels for him? Zac legitimately flew out to the games in Rio and surprised her and the whole team. Talk about a charmer!
Of course, it would all be innocent fun if he tried contacting Maddie and we’re patiently waiting for it all to unfold. Jack just may have to turn a blind eye to this crush of hers!
