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.

She then went to visit him in China where he was filming a movie that summer.


By July 2018, the media 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 traveling 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.

Their red-carpet debut came on September 6, 2018, at several New York Fashion Week events.

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.

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.
