Some stars like to keep their relationships very private, but not Madelaine Petsch and Travis Mills! The Riverdale star and her musician/actor beau have been dating for nearly three years now, and they've always been surprisingly open about sharing details about their lives together. According to Madelaine, there's a good reason for that: the couple love leaning into their "couple goals" role as positive role models.
"I think my generation is extremely cynical about love," Madelaine told Glamour in 2018. "I'm a huge advocate of showing my relationship online because love does exist, and I think it's so important for our generation to know that love will win. No matter who you love, what you love, it will win. I feel like I see so much online of people being cynical about never being able to find love and it's become, like, cool. You don't need it by any means. You can live without it, and you can totally be self-independent and happy . . . Before I met Travis, I felt that way for a year. I was fully single and didn't talk to anybody," she explained. "And then I met him and was like, 'Oh my God, this is what they say.' It sounds patronizing when they say, 'When you know, you know,' but [now] I know."
Madelaine and Travis's relationship has been very public but, also, very refreshingly drama-free. Ahead, check out some of their relationship milestones so far, starting from their very sweet meet-cute and moving onward to their current status as long-distance relationship goals.
