Tom Holland celebrated his girlfriend, Zendaya’s birthday on Instagram with a very unique, and strangely public, display of affection.
Zendaya Gets The Best Surprise From Tom On Her Birthday
On Wednesday, the actor commemorated his Spiderman co-star and love interest’s 25th birthday by posting a mirror selfie of the two of them on set. He captioned the adorable picture with “My MJ”.
In the picture, Holland has his spandex Spiderman bodysuit on while Zendaya, also in costume, cozies up behind him with a bright smile on her face and a camera held up to one eye.
A rumor that the two Marvel stars are more than just friends have been going around for years. Those rumors were resurrected in early July after they were spotted kissing in a car. Since then, Tom and Zendaya have also been photographed dining and even attending a friend’s wedding together.
Holland and Zendaya initially met in 2016 on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming, the film in which Zendaya was first introduced to the Marvel universe as MJ, Peter Parker’s love interest. Although their characters didn’t formally get together until 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, according to a source who spoke to People, the actors started dating back in July 2017. Since then both have been linked to other people.
An insider leaked the fact that people should not to look forward to any big, public declarations of love from either star as they are not the ones to make their relationship public. They are very private when it comes to dating, so any photos that have come out would’ve just been them going about their business and not knowing paparazzi were around. Their relationship has also apparently been a slow burn reported the source.
Zendaya and Tom started off like really close friends and stayed that way for a long time before things turned romantic.
