In a sure sign of how deeply Zendaya and Tom Holland are in love, fans noticed that the two are now wearing tributes to the other in recent sightings. Zendaya was seen wearing a signet ring with Holland’s initials, “TH,” in a video her manicurist posted on Instagram Stories this weekend to show off Zendaya’s nails. Other fans noted that in recent paparazzi photos, Holland was spotted wearing multiple pairs of pants with a “Z” on the back pocket.
Zendaya and Holland have been dating for over a year, going public with their relationship in summer 2021 when the two were filmed making out in a car. The two previously denied reports they dated in 2017.
Zendaya admitted in a fall 2021 interview with GQ for its profile of Holland that she found the public interest in their relationship to be “quite strange and weird and confusing and invasive. The equal sentiment [we both share] is just that when you really love and care about somebody, some moments or things, you wish were your own… I think loving someone is a sacred thing and a special thing and something that you want to deal with and go through and experience and enjoy amongst the two people that love each other.”
Still, the two have become more public with their relationship in recent months. While they have yet to attend an award show together as a couple, they post tributes to each other on Instagram. Holland recently made headlines for liking and commenting on several posts Zendaya shared of herself from the SAG and NAACP Image Awards weekend despite not attending either show with her.
The two were photographed in London the weekend of the Oscars, spending time in Holland’s hometown with his family.
