Former Disney Channel star Dylan Sprouse and Victoria’s Secret Angel Barbara Palvin began dating in 2018 – and the couple still seems to be going strong.
From meeting at a party to seemingly living together, here’s how their relationship has unfolded so far.
In June 2018, Barbara Palvin and Dylan Sprouse began quietly dating.
In 2019, Palvin posted on Instagram that the couple’s anniversary is on June 16, meaning they likely began dating during the summer of 2018.
She told People magazine that she knew “the first minute” she met him that she wanted to be exclusive with Sprouse.
The couple told W magazine that they initially started talking after Palvin followed Sprouse on Instagram and he sent her a direct message. She didn’t answer him for a while, but, once she did, they struck up a conversation.
By July 2018, fans had noticed they were hanging out.
The couple hadn’t yet publicly commented on their relationship by mid-summer.
But according to Cosmopolitan, Sprouse posted a now-deleted Instagram of he and Palvin at the World Cup in Russia.
Notably, Sprouse recently deleted almost all of the photos off of his Instagram – not just the ones with Palvin in them.
On August 4, 2018, Palvin wished Sprouse a happy birthday.
Palvin seemed to make her relationship with Sprouse Instagram official when he turned 26.
On his birthday, she posted a selfie of the two of them, captioning it, “Even though it’s your birthday I feel I just got the biggest present of all. Happy birthday Boss Baby.”
In August 2018, they visited Hungary, where Palvin was born.
In August of 2018, Palvin and Sprouse were spotted travelling around Budapest together.
Sprouse later told W magazine that during the trip he was trying to pick up some Hungarian to better communicate with Palvin’s parents.
“I wasn’t nervous to meet her parents, but the truth is that there is a language barrier, obviously,” Sprouse told the publication. “Her mother speaks a very tiny bit [of English], and I am not proficient in Hungarian. I’m trying, but learning is definitely an overstatement.”
In September 2018, the couple attended several events together during New York Fashion Week.
They appeared together many times that week – including the book launch and exhibit for “Angles,” and the next day when they were photographed at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party.
In October 2018, the couple showed off their love of anime with their Halloween costumes.
The two attended Heidi Klum’s Halloween party together in 2018.
According to Just Jared, Palvin went as Gaara from “Naruto” and Sprouse as Future Trunks from “Dragon Ball Z.”
Palvin told W magazine that their mutual love for anime is a big plus for their relationship.
“In high school, I had a friend who would watch ‘Naruto’ with me, but that faded away. When [Dylan] came into my life, I was like, I’m home, baby,” she said.
In November 2018, Sprouse supported Palvin from the audience of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
While watching Palvin walk the Victoria’s Secret runway, Sprouse had his hand over his heart and he couldn’t stop cheering for her. He also memorably brought her Shake Shack burgers to eat after the show.
Palvin later posted a photo of them kissing on Instagram, writing that Sprouse is even “better than burgers.”
By January 2019, it seems they had moved in together in New York City.
“Two worms officially in the big apple,” Palvin wrote in the caption of a photo of them standing in a room filled with moving boxes.
In February 2019, Palvin finally met Dylan’s twin brother Cole Sprouse.
The two brothers were photographed with Palvin at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party looking chic as ever.
Prior to this event, Dylan told W magazine that Palvin hadn’t met his brother yet because Cole was “a very busy guy” shooting “Riverdale” up in Canada.
In March 2019, Sprouse celebrated Palvin’s Victoria’s Secret promotion.
Palvin was officially made a Victoria’s Secret Angel in March of 2019. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Sprouse commented on Instagram to congratulate her, writing, “Here’s to the people who tried to drag her down, cheers!”
On June 16, 2019, the couple celebrated their one-year anniversary.
“One whole year with smoogie,” Dylan captioned a now-deleted photo of them at an event. “From China to NYC to the rest of the world. I’ll save the sappiness for private, but my life is better now.”
On February 9, 2020, the couple went to their second Vanity Fair Oscars after-party together.
Sprouse posted on Instagram the day of the 2020 Academy Awards that he and Palvin were back in LA with his dog, Magnus.
That night, they joined his brother, Cole, and a long list of celebrities at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party where the couple took some adorable arrival photos.
On June 17, 2020, Sprouse wished Palvin a happy two-year anniversary on social media.
He wrote on Instagram that he was posting it “a few days late now due to having no service in Yosemite.”
Part of the caption read, “Here’s to us looking more alike with each passing year until we’re a single beast with four arms and four legs that runs at a top speed of 50 mph and screams like a baboon at nearby travellers trespassing into our woods.”
On July 17, 2020, Palvin gave a few insights into the couple’s relationship during a Vogue video.
During a Vogue“Beauty Secrets” video, Palvin seemed to confirm that she and Spouse are still living together amid the coronavirus pandemic. She also gave a few wholesome insights into their relationship.
“… I like to apply it with going in circles with my fingies, fingers, sorry,” she said. “I’ve been home for so long and Dylan and I created this baby talk, and it’s horrible.”
She later added, “It’s pretty embarrassing, sorry. We created this silly language, which is we became babies, and it’s really just silly and embarrassing. And sometimes we also disgust ourselves because we would say a sentence and it wouldn’t make any sense. It’s just baby talk.”
Palvin mentioned her boyfriend one more time in the video saying, “Dylan thinks that I have the whitest scalp. That I look like an egg. I don’t agree with him, but also he shouldn’t be staring at my scalp. It’s just weird.”
On August 4, 2020, Palvin posted a photo on Instagram for Sprouse’s birthday.
Palvin put together a simple Instagram post for Sprouse’s 28th birthday.
The caption read, “Happy Birthday Cowboy! I love you!!” with a few emojis.
She also posted a few sillier photos on her Instagram story to celebrate the day, including one for his twin brother, Cole.
