Zendaya posted a photo of Tom Holland yesterday to commemorate his 26th birthday. The sweet black-and-white picture was captioned, “Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest.”

The Euphoria star’s social media feed mostly consists of the results of recent fashion shoots, or promotions of her acting work and fun pictures from behind the scenes of various projects. In fact, the last time Holland graced her Instagram was as a co-worker in a trailer she posted for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Holland recently said that he and Zendaya prefer to keep the nature of their relationship private. It seems strange, but they never publicly announced a romance. It was first confirmed when some paparazzi caught them kissing in a car, something Holland said was very disappointing to both of them.

“One of the downsides to 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,” Holland put it eloquently.

The actor also mentioned that it wasn’t an issue of him not being ready to discuss the relationship. “I don’t think it’s about not being ready. It’s just that we didn’t want to,” Holland said.

Zendaya told reporters she found the photo leak “confusing and invasive,” and added, “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.”
