The two met on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016, playing love interests Peter and MJ. They immediately sparked rumors when the Marvel movie hit theaters in 2017, but it wasn’t until they were photographed packing on the PDA in July 2021 that their romance was confirmed.

Still, the pair prefer to remain private. “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world … We sort of felt robbed of our privacy,” Holland told GQ in November 2021.

The Uncharted star added that he doesn’t want to discuss their relationship without Zendaya. “It’s not a conversation that I can have without her,” he explained. “You know, I respect her too much to say … This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together.”

Though putting their relationship in the spotlight wasn’t planned, another source exclusively told Us in December 2021 it helped their bond. “Going public with their relationship has made them even more strong and confident in their relationship,” the insider said at the time.

Being working actors means the pair often spend time apart. Holland was working on one of the biggest nights of Zendaya’s career — winning her second Emmy. Though he couldn’t be with her at the September award ceremony, the Dune star celebrated with her beau via text.

“Well, I didn’t have to text my mom, [Claire Stoermer, when I won] because my mom was already there, she’s here tonight, which is very special. And I texted my boyfriend,” the Disney Channel alum told E! News in September after the ceremony.
