Bughead: Fact or Fiction? An investigation into Cole Sprouse and Lily Reinhart's relationship.

Gather round, friends and people who invest too much time in celebrity relationships. There's new proof that Riverdale co-stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart are dating. Only a few days ago, Cole celebrated his 25th birthday and Lili posted a photo on Instagram with a heart-warming caption.

"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," Lili wrote.

Compare this to last year's birthday greetings – Cole has gone from "pal" to "the man who has shown me more beautiful places." LEVEL UP!

Then today, Cole posted the game-changer: another beautiful photo of her, with no caption. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but only three that matter here: WE. ARE. DATING.

The Riverdale onscreen couple fuelled dating rumours when they were spotted canoodling at San Diego Comic-Con last month. Cole had previously mentioned that he will never comment on the rumours, but we also know that he enjoys a good joke.

Maybe he's trolling us? Or maybe he likes to keep us guessing. Remember that time when Lili posted this on twitter?

And then Cole responded with this?

The last piece of evidence for our case is Cole's dreamy photo of someone's hair (IS THAT LILI'S HAIR?). He once indirectly admitted that he has a thing for Lili's blonde locks.
