Zendaya and Tom Holland are getting more and more open about their affection for each other every day.
In a new video posted by Buzzfeed on December 17, Zendaya called her rumored boyfriend “sweetheart” while they played the publication’s Spider-Man: No Way Home quiz with their fellow costar Jacob Batalon. Towards the end of the five-minute video, the group catches a bit of the giggles, which only gets worse when Holland decides he’d like to play a few more “quizzies.”
“Quizzies? Quizzes,” Zendaya corrects with a laugh, laying her head on his shoulder. “Aw, sweetheart… Quizzies!”
Still laughing, Holland responds, “I’m never going on Buzzfeed ever again.”
Of course, fans of the pair—many of whom have suspected a relationship between the pair for years—were thrilled by the interaction. “When she called him sweetheart 🥰,” one TikTok user wrote in the comments. That reply alone received over seven thousand likes. Another wrote, “He’s just high on the fact that he’s finally dating Zendaya.”
Zendaya and Holland met on the set of Spider-Man back in 2016. While the pair still haven’t technically confirmed their relationship, they’ve definitely become more openly affectionate in public since photos of them kissing went viral in July 2021.
“I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private because I share so much of my life with the world anyway,” Holland recently told GQ. “We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready—it’s just that we didn’t want to [talk about it].”
He added, “This isn’t my story; it’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”
Despite not commenting on the nature of their relationship publically, the pair have not held back their care for each other. Holland has called Zendaya “beautiful” during red carpet interviews, while the Dune star referred to him as “my Spider-Man” in a particularly touching Instagram post.
“My Spider-Man, I’m so proud of you,” she recently wrote alongside two photos of Holland dressed as the superhero at different points of his life. “Some things never change and good thing ♥️.”
