Everything to Know About Zendaya and Tom Holland's Relationship
Spider-Man co-stars Zendaya and Tom Holland spent years dodging questions about whether or not there was something more to their on-screen romance, but the two decided to make things official between the second and third installments of their superhero epic, giving fans everywhere exactly what they wanted. Now, instead of brushing off rumors of being more than friends, the two have become one of Hollywood's sweetest duos, offering plenty of support to one another for their respective projects and even giving us peeks of their love life behind the scenes. Here's everything you need to know about what fans have dubbed Tomdaya, from their very first swings together on the big screen to major red carpet moments.
Zendaya and Holland officially meet on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Of course, Holland says that everyone on set is friendly and that Zendaya actually gave him advice on dealing with fame, something she knows a little about from her days on the Disney Channel.
"We are like the best of friends. She's so great and amazing," Holland told People at the time. "I'm a little worried [about dealing with fame…but] Zendaya is super famous and she's been through this, and I just call her up and say, 'How do I manage being famous?' I'm very glad I have a friend like her."
When the two start to promote the flick together, there's naturally a lot of chemistry off the screen. Rumors start to surface, which the two neither confirm nor deny. Sources close to the two do talk, however, saying that they're keeping their relationship private.
"They started seeing each other while they were filming Spider-Man," a source told People in July 2017. "They've been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye, but they've gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another."
Zendaya and Holland joke about it all, taking their banter onto Twitter.
"Wait wait ... my favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven't been on a vacation in years! hbu @TomHolland1996 ???" Zendaya tweeted. Holland responded, "Does the press tour count."
Holland doesn't help the situation when he posts a pic of Zendaya from the Met Gala to his feed.
Of course, the two of them hit multiple red carpets together to promote Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Things get a little murky from here. Zendaya may or may not have been dating her Euphoria co-star Jacob Elordi (they got snapped on a vacation in Greece).
Holland goes Instagram-official with girlfriend Nadia Parks on July 27, 2020. Eventually, Elordi and Kaia Gerber are a bonafide couple, leaving Tomdaya fans scratching their heads and wondering if their web-slinging hero and his real-life MJ are dunzo.
A source told the Daily Mail that Parks moved in with Holland during the COVID-19 lockdown.
"They made the decision to isolate together and things have been going great between them," the source says. "Tom has told friends and family they're in an official relationship and living together so soon into their romance has only made them stronger."
Hope springs eternal thanks to the paparazzi. Zendaya and Holland are photographed making out in Los Angeles. According to Page Six, which the two actors were in Silver Lake with Zendaya's mom, Claire Stoermer. Of course, fans are relieved and euphoric, sending Zendaya into Twitter's trending topics.
A source told Us that the two keep each other grounded.
"They both challenge each other and balance each other out," the source says, noting that Holland "makes her laugh," and Zendaya "really helps guide him through the world of celebrity."
The couple headed to a friend's wedding together.
The next month, Holland commemorates Zendaya's birthday with a selfie from the Spider-Man set. In the caption, he writes as Peter Parker: "My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when your [sic] up xxx."
