While we (im)patiently wait for part 2 of Bridgerton season 3, we’ve been keeping up with the cast on social media, and dear reader, there’s so much to discuss. From Nicola Coughlan’s Real Housewives–style house remix taking over our TikTok FYPs to Luke Newton’s head tilt (yes, we’re still spiraling), the members of the Ton have provided nothing but chaotic good vibes on our feeds. The latest news from the Bridgerton cast, though, comes from Jessica Madsen, who plays Cressida Cowper on the series.

On June 1, Jessica rang in Pride month with a colorful post on her Instagram feed—and came out to her followers in the process. “In Love with a woman, loud about it and proud about it! 🌈 #pride #pridemonth #loveislove #gaypride,” she wrote alongside the post, which features a fab selfie of her rocking rainbow-colored gemstones.

You know you can read ahead for show spoilers, right?

Friends and fans flooded her comments section with sweet messages, including Bridgerton author Julia Quinn, who left a series of rainbow heart emojis. Leading lady Nicola followed suit with pink sparkling hearts. A fan also referenced Cressida and Eloise’s relationship on the series as they wrote, “THIS IS WHY I FELT CRELOISE! My gaydar wasn’t wrong! on a serious note, I’m so happy for you! 🥰🌈.”

The actor then thanked everyone for their support, writing, “WOW thank you all for your beautiful messages ❤️🌈❤️.”

While Creloise isn’t canon, Bridgerton fans are already shipping the pair and begging for their friendship to grow into something more.


Jessica even weighed in on the theories with these cheeky nods on her Instagram Stories:

During an interview with Business Insider, Claudia Jessie opened up about the possibility of her character, Eloise, being queer. “I’ve always loved that there’s this coding that people have with Eloise. There’s a strength in her that I think a queer storyline can connect,” she said of fans’ theories. “And I’ve always been touched by that as a notion with Eloise. But yeah, there’s definitely room for all of that.”
