Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse’s IRL romance has prompted the hottest are-they-or-aren’t-they  discussion currently flooding Twitter feeds and IG comments. 

The “Riverdale” co-stars have captured fans hearts with their achingly poignant portrayal of the onscreen romance between their characters Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones. At first, “Riverdale” fanatics were desperate for a relationship to blossom IRL between the two celebs after shipping the fictional pairing so hard, a fantasy that was only fueled by Reinhart and Sprouse’s behavior. 

Don’t worry, we have the receipts: 

First, there was Lili Reinhart’s personal photoshoot posted to Cole Sprouse’s IG. 


Then, the two couldn’t help but pose for a pic on Reinhart’s IG story to show off their scary-good matching skeleton Halloween costumes.

With a recent candid shared with her millions of Instagram followers, Reinhart revealed a late-night/early-morning breakfast session that seemingly confirmed #SprouseHart once and for all.

“When I wanted eggs and toast at 1 am,” Reinhart wrote in the photo’s caption. That innocuous phrase was only half of what sent fans into a frenzy. The star was careful to also tag Cole Sprouse in the snap.

#SprouseHart supporters took to Twitter to announce their praise of this subtle confirmation: 

“Can we all just take a moment to realise how much more comfortable sprousehart are about their relationship. they literally went form ‘I’m a sucker for friends’ to ‘we literally went on a dinner date at 1am just because I wanted some eggs and toast,'” wrote one fan, appreciative of the intimate glimpse into their private lives.

One fan was quick to note that Sprouse also brazenly liked Reinhart’s photo as well, not backing down from her public reveal.

From Bughead to #SprouseHart, life really does imitate art.
