Tom Holland wishes Zendaya a happy birthday, calls her his MJ

Yesterday was Zendaya’s 25th birthday. Among the many birthday salutations she received was one from her co-star, Tom Holland. Tom and Zendaya have been advertising to the press and everyone else that they are, in fact, dating. However, they have not technically confirmed this, just like they never confirmed it the first time. So they may be dating and they may be dating again. However, people think Tom did confirm their relationship yesterday in his Happy Birthday message to Zendaya on Instagram in which he called her, “My MJ.”

Tom Holland made his relationship with Zendaya Instagram official in the sweetest of ways.

The Spider-Man actor, 25, wished his costar and girlfriend a happy 25th birthday on Wednesday with a cozy mirror selfie of the two in costume for their Marvel roles.

“My MJ, have the happiest of birthdays. Gimme a call when you’re [sp] up xxx,” Holland captioned the shot, which shows him in his Spider-Man suit with Zendaya close behind him as she takes the picture with a camera.

The post comes weeks after the two have started showing off their real-life love in public.

They were first linked again in early July when they were seen sharing a steamy smooch inside a car.

Since being spotted earlier this summer, Holland and Zendaya have been seen attending a friend’s wedding together and grabbing dinner out.

I am 100% fully aboard the Tom/Zendaya as a couple train, please understand that. But if it were my 25th birthday, you best be next to me in bed when I wake up, Sir. There are ways to celebrate that require a boyfriend’s attention. Knowing these two, the whole “call me” is just a clever ruse to confuse us. Zendaya might’ve been the one who told him to write it. However, these two crazy kids’ schedule are more packed than a can of sardines. Lord knows where they are right now. The message is darling and major credit to Tom to wrap his clickbait message to Zendaya into his Spider-man: No Way Home promotion. Kevin Feige probably cried a little when he saw that.

Okay, so now we have the kiss, we have the IG post and we have no denial. I agree that we should call this relationship back on. And like CB, I could not be happier about it:

    I hate that I’m cynical about this, err, romance.😉😉

    But can’t wait for No Way Home!

  2. Snuffles says:

    They’re just so darn ADORABLE together! I ship!

    I remember way back when the first SpiderMan was filming and they were filming dance challenges together, Tom was trying SO hard to impress her with his ballet spins. I could tell he was sweet on her then.

    Anyhoo, very happy for them. I hope it lasts this time around.

  3. Joan Callamezzo says:

    Their vibe is so pure and adorable. I wish them the best in life.

  7. Sofia says:

    Yeah I agree that the caption was doing some No Way Home promotion as well as a message from a guy to his girlfriend. I wish them both happiness in this relationship. They seem cute.

  8. tempest prognosticator says:

    Awwww. These two are really cute.

  9. Lucy says:

    Going by her IG stories, she was right in the middle of some (foggy) late night filming for Euphoria. I love this couple!


    People always say actors are dumb as a box of rocks (or alternatively are brilliant because they went to Harvard) but I try not to generalize. My bare minimum expectation for anyone who has had the fortune to be taught how to read is to be able to use “your” and “you’re” properly. Call me a grammar asshole, I don’t care. People that routinely do that – we all make mistakes – are intellectually lazy and I don’t get it. I see that and assume they are sloppy.

    • Christina says:

      I must be slow, too.

      When I saw the (sp), I was confused. Didn’t he mean, “When you are up, call me”? Wouldn’t that be a proper use of “you’re”?

      Seriously. I need to go get my copy of Elements of Style. Thanks, Crooksnnannies. I think I write like Tom Holland, lol!

    • mimic says:

      He does have dyslexia, though, so I think most people give him a pass, as do I. I write for a living, so I’m a grammar freak, too, but I just chose to focus on the lovely sentiment instead, as well as the sweet relationship between two kind, well-adjusted kids.

    • Nicky says:

      Tom Holland was diagnosed with dyslexia since he was 7 years old, this really affects the way he not only read but also writes.

    • Winechampion says:

      Wow. He’s dyslexic, you know. Hella rude and ableist to call him “intellectually lazy”.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      That “intellectually lazy” 25 year old is a multi-millionaire superstar with a reputation for being an amazing, kind person, he’s breaking records all over the place and is now in a seemingly great relationship with the love of his life……your, you’re, who the hell cares? Lighten up, is what I’m trying to say. 🙃

    • ElleV says:

      funny, i measure intelligence by creativity, critical thinking, abstraction, self-awareness, empathy, problem-solving…

      but i guess if that’s too complex, keep searching for genius at the spelling bee

  11. wow says:

    he’s in England rn working,

  12. Normades says:

    I think they’re both adorable and bffs but I think this is for promotional purposes. They “split“ the first time and she was with Jacob Elordi which seemed low key but very serious.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Jacob Elordi cheated on her, apparently, so not so serious. Tom seems to love the shit out of her, I think she’s much better off with him.

      • Normades says:

        Not sure he’d be so brazen to have dinner with someone else (Kaia Gerber, man these gals!) if he was cheating. Fair enough he’s probably a huge ahole but still not buying this.

  13. girl_ninja says:

    I was happy to find out that they’d gotten back together. I really didn’t like her with that Australian co-star from Euphoria. Z and Tom have so much chemistry together and seem to really dig each other.

    Sending all the positive vibes their way.

  14. AnnaBRB says:

    He is rumored to be working on Dr Strange reshoots in London, and she’s filming Euphoria in LA/heading to Venice for the VFF premier of Dune. They are balancing love and career in a very mature way IMHO! They are just the perfect balance between different/similar, unexpected and obvious. Love them!

    His Insta photo is among the top 20 most liked of all time, and no mentions this but it is a recreation of a Pattinson/Karaman photo, which makes it even cuter <3

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Wow, thanks for the shout out! I was a little irritated that he picked a picture where her face is covered, know the Pattinson/Karaman reference really makes it so much better. 🙂💓

  15. Case says:

    They’re adorable. Love them together.

    They weren’t together on her birthday because they’re working on projects in separate countries. She posted that she was on set all day yesterday for Euphoria.

  16. lucy2 says:

    He’s 25? He looks so young for his age! They seem very cute together.
    I have such a girl crush on her – she’s so smart and stylish and cool.

  17. Scrambled Eggs says:

    These two are cute as can be. I enjoy their vibe as a couple that is also based on a strong friendship. I am honestly perplexed by the cries of PR relationship because neither of them has a messy past they need buffed nor does any Marvel movie, no less SPIDER-MAN, need attention drawn to it. Hoping it works out for them!

  18. The Artist Formerly Known as Valiantly Varnished says:

    They’re actors, it may not have been logistically possible for them to be together on her birthday. They may not have even been in the same country.

  19. TheOriginalMia says:

    I love them together. I was hoping they’d find their way back to each other.

  20. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    There’s my little umbrella dancer. Such a sweetie lol.

  21. Big Little Sighs says:

    This is one couple that I actually root for. I am glad that Zendaya loosened up to go public. Rumor is that is what Tom wanted the first time. They both seem like genuinely nice people and I really hope it works out for them.

  22. evie says:

    They make a cute couple.
