The ‘gram in question appeared on Mendes’ feed Sunday, October 7. In the picture, Melton is seen kissing Mendes’ forehead, with his arm loosely hung around her shoulders. Mendes, in turn, has her arm around his waist, and her face is scrunched up in a sweet smile.
Perhaps more telling than the photo itself is the caption. “Mine,” Mendes wrote alongside the pic.
To say that a freakout soon commenced in Mendes’ comments would be an understatement. “Blow up the whole internet why don’t you,” one fan wrote jokingly. Another described the picture as “what we’ve been waiting for,” while others simply expressed their excitement in a flurry of heart emojis and exclamation points. Even actor Tommy Dorfman weighed in on the picture, writing: “WE OFFICIAL YAS.”
Of course, we’ll have to wait and see if either Mendes or Melton concretely confirm their relationship status. But from the photo and corresponding caption, it seems as though the two actors are pretty happy…and that makes their fans pretty happy, too.
Meanwhile, Riverdale‘s other favorite maybe-couple, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse, have been cute on Instagram, too. In September, Sprouse took to Instagram to wish Reinhart a happy birthday, calling her his “love.” “Both the birthday and the gift. My little muse, happy birthday my love,” he wrote.
