Like the rest of the internet, Tom Holland was awestruck by girlfriend Zendaya’s viral appearance at Schiaparelli’s haute couture fashion show in Paris on Monday. The Spider-Man actor posted two photos of Zendaya on his Instagram Story. In the first post, he commented just three heart-eye emojis.

In his second Instagram Story, he reposted photographer Bilal Zagaoui’s video of Zendaya arriving at the show, captioning it, “This was made for me 😂”

Holland shut down Zendaya breakup rumors earlier this month when he was approached by a TMZ photographer on January 12. He said they were “absolutely not” split up after fans feared Zendaya unfollowing him—and everyone else—on Instagram meant something about their relationship status.

Holland and Zendaya have kept their relationship as private as they can. Zendaya spoke to ELLE in the summer about the public’s interest in them as a couple. Does the support from fans make the attention they get easier to handle? The answer is complicated. “Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public,” she said. “I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love. But also, I do have control over what I choose to share. It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist. You can’t hide. That’s not fun, either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”

News of Holland and Zendaya dating again broke in July 2021 after they were first rumored to have dated in 2017. Holland spoke to GQ in November 2021 about how hard it was for them to have their relationship outed by a video of them kissing in his car.

“One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world,” he said. “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy.”
