After months of speculation, Stranger Things stars Natalia Dyer and Charlie Heaton were spotted holding hands earlier today—and fans went crazy.

Today, the 20-year-old actress, who plays Nancy Wheeler, and the 23-year-old Brit, who plays Jonathan Byers on the hit Netflix show, held hands while hanging out in New York City.

While the pair have not officially confirmed their relationship status, the duo have quietly left a trail of breadcrumbs all over the Internet, leading to the logical conclusion that they're more than just co-stars.

Let's check out all the times that two sparked romance rumors on their social media...

Sept. 14, 2016: This is the first time that Charlie appeared on Natalia's Instagram. She jokes that "We're sure going to miss you" on season 2.

Their show debuted in July 15 2016, but the two were still hanging out on Sept. 14. People of the Internet took notice of Natalia's post and started commenting about a potential romance. Given that Natalia posted about La Sagrada Familia (a church in Barcelona, Spain) just days before the pigeon post and Spaniards are known to paint their pigeons a tie-dye of colors, it's quite possible the two were on a trip to Barcelona, Spain together.
