Riverdale is a show known for its crazy drama—but behind the scenes, it's also been the birthplace of many a young Hollywood couple. While the status of Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse's relationship, a.k.a "Bughead" on the show, was called into question earlier this summer, it appears that Camila Mendes, who plays Veronica, and Charles Melton (Reggie) are going strong.
The two kept their relationship fairly private in the beginning, but they have been spotted out and about at some big events, including this year's Met Gala. Now, a year after they started dating, Mendes and Melton are out here on Instagram publicly declaring that they're in love. That's quite a way to celebrate an anniversary.
The actress posted a sweet photo of the two kissing on a boat with a gorgeous sunset in the background. "365 days. i love you," she wrote in the caption.
Meanwhile, Melton also chose a boat photo to mark the occasion. "I love you," he wrote.
Friends and fans were loving the public display of affection. "😇❤️," Reinhart wrote in Mendes's comments. "I love you too ...oh wait... you meant @camimendes," Madchen Amick, who plays Alice Cooper on Riverdale, jokingly wrote in response to Melton's post.
There were some fans who were upset that Mendes isn't paired up IRL with her onscreen on-again-off-again boyfriend, KJ Apa (who plays Archie Andrews)—not, you know, that that's their business. But the Charles and Camila stans were quick to shut that down: "To the people who say that Camila should be with KJ, can’t you just shut your damn mouth?!" one wrote. "It’s so disrespectful and horrible to comment something like this on a picture where she’s saying 'I love you' to him. If you love her or even like her then respect, if you know what that word means. Respect her decisions, it’s not your life, it’s hers. She’s happy with Charles, then let her be. They love each other and are really cute together. 😍"
Melton previously revealed a sweet detail about the couple's relationship to Glamour: He writes her letters. "With text messages, you can text someone you're thinking about them," he said. "You don't have to let someone know you're always thinking about them, but it's nice to know. There's something special about a letter."
Cue all the "awwwwws." Happy anniversary, you two!
