Curious about the latest Lili Reinhart boyfriend news? Well, it seems we have some juicy developments in that department, as the Riverdale actress has *finally* made the confirmation we've all been waiting for.

While we've managed to suss out information on Miss Hermione Granger—Emma Watson's boyfriend sitch has been in high demand as of late—and uncovered what's happening with the chaotic Ariana Grande dating news—Reinhart likes to keep her private life well, private. Finding out updates on her romantic situation has not been the easiest.

But as of late, she decided to let her fanbase in on what's happening in her love life. That being said, it looks like the star is officially blissfully in love, according to Instagram Stories. Here's what you need to know. 

Lili Reinhart boyfriend news: is she dating anyone?

While Lili was linked to Ozark's Spencer Neville in April 2022, after the pair were spotted together at Coachella—with a source telling E! News that they were "casually seeing each other"—rumor has it she's now seeing someone new. 

So who is this mystery man, you ask? Well, Lili is now believed to be dating TikTok star and actor Jack Martin after they were seen kissing at LAX Airport on Tuesday, April 11, 2023—per photos published by Page Six.

The pictures see the pair embrace and seemingly kiss, before Lili bids farewell and then carries her luggage into the airport. Pretty darn romantic if you ask us, but neither party has addressed the rumors...until the summer. 

On August 3, Lili took to Instagram Stories to show some love for her "cowboy" in honor of his birthday. She posted an image of Jack in his Western garb with the caption, "It's my cowboy's birthday." As the Story continued, Jack was seen eating a delicious dessert, to which she wrote, "I'll split my pain au chocolat with you any day." As the montage came to a close, she wrote, "I'm so grateful for the light you've brought into my life. Happy birthday, mon petite."

And to make matters all the more exciting, West responded with "So grateful for you," a comment she also shared on IG Stories alongside heart emojis. We're certainly keeping our eyes peeled for future updates on social, that's for sure.

This new relationship development comes after Lili's ex-boyfriend and former on-screen Riverdale love interest, Cole Sprouse appeared on the Call Her Daddy podcast, on March 8, 2023 and dished on their uber-private relationship and breakup. 

This appearance is something that Lili's supposed new boyfriend, Jack actually parodied on the Barstool Sport’s “PlanBri Uncut” podcast...

Lili Reinhart dating and relationship timeline

As mentioned Lili is understandably quite tight-lipped on her relationships, though fans of Riverdale (which is now in its seventh and final season) will of course remember her on-screen and IRL romance with co-star Cole Sprouse.

Yes, Betty and Jughead did indeed date while their fictional romance unfolded on the Netflix show. The pair were first linked in 2017 and dated on and off for three years, sharing tributes and nods to each other on social media and making their first red-carpet debut, as a couple, at the 2018 Met Gala.

The pair then parted ways in 2020, with Cole taking to Instagram to set the record straight about their breakup timeline after months of speculation. He wrote: "Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March."

Before adding, "What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter."

Now he's in a relationship with Ari Fournier.

Despite both having seemingly moved on, their relationship has hit headlines once again, with Cole appearing on the Call Her Daddy podcast (on March 8, 2023) to discuss his current relationship and his and Lili's public breakup.

While he didn't go into a lot of detail, he said: "I know we both did quite a bit of damage to each other," before adding that their relationship break was mutual—though when pressed by host Alex Cooper, he confirmed that he was the one who left the relationship.

He then said: "I think if I had loved myself a little more, I probably would have left [the relationship] a little earlier. I just felt like I had to take care of a lot of people around me, which was not good for me. I probably should have exercised a bit more selfishness in that situation."
