Selena Gomez made it clear on her Instagram last week that she had a childhood crush on her fellow Disney Channel star Cole Sprouse. It got his attention immediately, and he commented on her post with a pun referencing the other guy she had a crush on, Juan. Gomez took roughly a week to reply back to Sprouse. It’s what you do when you’re causal, playing it cool, not always on Instagram, etc.

He commented, “always Juan-upping me.” She replied, four days later, “@colesprouse nice one 😂” It was a short, sweet, and chill response. Sprouse hasn’t said anything else publicly.

An adult Gomez-Sprouse romance isn’t really in the cards though. Sprouse is dating his Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart and just shared four photos of them making out to mark her birthday last Friday. "Lil @lilireinhart was born on a Friday the 13th and haven’t I just been so lucky ever since?" he captioned it.

That photo got over 9 million likes:

It comes shortly after Reinhart called Sprouse her “boyfriend” in an interview with Coveteur. She posted a love poem to him on his birthday last month, which helped fuel rumors that despite reports they took a break earlier this summer, she and Sprouse really are dating still. She wrote:

I tried to find a poem
that I could send to you.
Because my words were failing me.
But I searched and found nothing that did you justice.
All of these love poems can’t get it right.
No one else’s words could ever fit.
They haven’t known the fortune it is to love you. -sappy nighttime birthday poem for @colesprouse

Gomez is single. In July, a source told E! that Gomez is "open to start putting herself out there again. She is taking everything day by day and focusing on herself and her music."
