Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart Shares Sweet Message to Her “Love” Cole Sprouse on His 26th Birthday
Our favorite Riverdale couple just keeps playing with our heartstrings! Bughead (aka Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse) are usually very coy about their rumored IRL romance, but every so often they say super cute things about one another that make it impossible for us to believe they’re not together. The latest involves Lili leaving a rare but sweet message to her “love” Cole on his birthday.
The actor celebrated his 26th birthday over the weekend and received tons of birthday tributes from everyone, including his former Disney castmates and current Riverdale co-stars. However, none of them was as perfect as the tribute his girlfriend posted about him.
“It seems as if the world would still be a stranger to me, if not for you. I’m so thankful that our paths intertwined to form this beautiful adventure,” she wrote alongside a photo of Cole from the pair’s romantic getaway to Mexico in April. “Happy birthday, my love.”
Of course, fans quickly lost all chill over her use of the words “my love” because the comments section of her IG post was filled with messages like, “SHE SAID MY LOVE” and “Bughead is so real omg <3 u guys." Cole and Lili's Riverdale co-stars Madelaine Petsch, Skeet Ulrich, Casey Scott, Camila Mendes, and more also couldn’t help but chime in to say what we’re all thinking.
However, it’s not just the words “my love” that have us swooning, it’s Lili’s whole birthday message. It’s just so damn romantic. This isn’t even the first time the actress has shared a sweet message for Cole’s birthday. Last year, she posted an equally romantic tribute, writing, “To the man who has shown me more beautiful places in this past year than I have ever seen in my whole life. Happy birthday, Cole. Thank you for all of the adventures and here’s to many more.”
Sweet birthday messages are all we’re going to get from these two, though. Lili and Cole may have seemingly confirmed their romance when they walked the red carpet together at the Met Gala back in May, but that doesn’t mean they’re open to discussing their relationship with the press.
In fact, in a July interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Lili said that any questions about her romantic relationship with Cole were off the table. “I’m not OK talking about my relationship,” she told the magazine. “I’m not going to tell you my love story. That’s just not appropriate right now.”
Hmmm, you can understand why Lili’s romantic birthday message to Cole is so rare now, right? We already knew there was a lot of love between Lili and Cole – and this post confirms it even more. We understand that they want to keep their romance as far away from the spotlight as possible, which is fair considering Hollywood has a way of ruining celebrity relationships, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to keep collecting each and every clue about what’s happening between the couple.
