With Riverdale season 2 less than one month away (27 days to be exact), our obsession with all things Pep is reaching fever pitch. One of our biggest fascinations? Bughead (AKA Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones' relationship) - both on and off-screen.

Now Cole Sprouse has FINALLY addressed rumours (and mounting evidence) that he's dating Lili Reinhart. And what he has to say will melt your damn heart.

"Since the show began, people have wanted Lili and I to be together," Cole told [Entertainment Weekly]. "People have wanted Lili and Camila to be together. People have wanted KJ and I to be together. People have wanted every actor on this show to be in a union that they could make real."

"Truthfully, it's very pleasing that people talk about Lili and I in that way because it means that we're resonating so strongly that people really want that to be true," he adds.

Hear that? That's the sound of Cole admitting that him and Lili make one helluva team, and we totally agree.

While it's not exactly a 'yes, we're 300% dating' type of confirmation, it's also far from a denial, amirite?

All that's left to do now is sit back and wait for killer Instagram pic announcing their undying love for each other.

In the meantime, here's just a load of smoking hot Cole Sprouse pics to tie you over until the new season drops.
