Tom Holland and Zendaya have finally confirmed their relationship and fans cannot contain their excitement. After years of dating rumors, the pair finally confirmed their relationship at the Ballon D’or award ceremony.
The actors co-star in the MCU’s Spider-Man series, with Holland playing the titular web-slinger, while Zendaya plays Peter Parker’s love-interest, MJ. The pair first starred together in Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2017. The anticipated finale to the “Homecoming” trilogy, Spider-Man: No Way Home, is set to hit theatres this month and will see the couple on-screen together for a third time.
The pair have long been rumored to be an item, but have continually dodged questions about their involvement despite invasive paparazzi photos taken earlier this year showing Holland and Zendaya sharing a kiss. Now, in photos from the annual Ballon D’Or awards, the actors have been pictured in their first official red carpet appearance as a couple. Holland and Zendaya attended the event together, which celebrates individual successes within world football, and were snapped while Holland had his arm around Zendaya’s waist.
The fan reactions were predictable given that both the stars have massive and devoted fan following. While neither of the actors have officially come out to confirms their relationship status, signs of their dating have been quite obvious.
In other news, Zendaya has been working on Denis Villeneuv’s acclaimed adaptation of Dune as Chani and Holland has been busy with voice acting projects as well as live action film. He is confirmed to star in Nathan Drake’s upcoming movie adaptation of popular video game Uncharted.
Now that Tom Holland and Zendaya’s relationship has been confirmed, fans have at least had their real-world Peter and MJ moment.
