Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse made Riverdale diehard fans' dreams come true on Monday night (May 7) when they arrived on the Met Gala red carpet together, seemingly sealing their status as a real life couple.

On the show, Reinhart (Betty Cooper) and Sprouse (Jughead Jones) are the beloved couple known as Bughead, and after months of dating rumors the two showing up to fashion's biggest night together is a pretty big deal.

Though this is exciting news for fans, they still have not publicly announced their relationship. Sprouse explained why they have not confirmed nor denied the rumors during an interview with PEOPLE in November.

“Lili and I are constantly talked about in the public eye, and for me I think that it is being deeply informed by the love of the characters and wanting to see us together,” he explained. “I think that in many ways it’s offensive and an invasion of privacy, but it’s also a badge of honor because it means you’re creating a chemistry onscreen that is so understandable that people want to see it in real life, which is flattering from a professional perspective.”

“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,” he continued. “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.”
