There are very few celebrity relationships that seem to make it the long haul. We imagine the spotlight, pressure, and time away put strain on the relationship. That's likely even more so for young couples who get together relatively new in life and their career. Like are Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty still together? They're, so far, beating the odds.
Are Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty still together in 2020?
The short answer is yes. As of late 2020, Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty are still very much an official item, and they may be the world's cutest couple. In the general sense of the world, these two have been an item for a long time. Add in the fact that they're young and both in Hollywood doing their own things, and the fact that these two are still together seems like they are beating the odds.
They met at work, and although Dove was engaged to someone else at the time, that relationship didn't work out. And that set the stage for these two to start one of the cutest relationships, that has the support of both set of fans — which isn't easy to do.
In 2013, Dove was in a relationship with her Liv and Maddie co-star Ryan McCartan. Three years later, in April 2016, the Disney couple announced they were engaged to be married. They had dated in a pretty steady and solid relationship for the duration, which is why fans were surprised in October of that same year when things changed. Dove and Ryan announced they had ended their engagement, and it was over pretty quickly for them.
That same year, in 2016, Dove and Thomas started working together. They were filming on the set of Descendants 2 in late 2016 and while no one is saying that feelings started developing between Dove and Thomas before she was technically single, the two became an item pretty quickly.
By December of 2016, Dove and Thomas started igniting romance rumors that there was something there between the two of them, and really, they've been together ever since. In an interview with E! News, Dove said that, at first, she was hesitant to acknowledge her feelings for Thomas, especially since it was so close to her engagement ending.
“I avoided him like the plague,” she said to E! News, though she knew that she was attracted to him right away. Thomas was the one who really made the first move though. He told her that he was falling in love with her, even though it had just been a few weeks since they had met.
Now, four years later, Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty are still a cute couple.
By February 2017, the pair were happy though their relationship was long-distance for the most part. In an interview with People, Dove said that she and Thomas were taking things slow and keeping their romance to themselves.
“We’re dating. I’m keeping it sort of … we’re keeping it to ourselves, because everything is just so more romantic and real when it’s yours and it’s private,” Dove said. “So we are keeping the details to ourselves, but yeah, we’re dating.”
She said that though they were long distance at that time, they made it work.
“It’s not too bad, we are both working, and we are busy humans,” she explained at the time. “It’s nice. We can chunk out visiting, and you work out the time difference. When I’m getting up, he’s going to sleep, and it’s nice. It’s not too bad.”
“We make an effort,” Dove continued. “It’s interesting, things like that make you make an effort.”
Now, years after that, the two are still together and happy, and Dove has been self-isolating with Thomas, so no more long distance.
She joked that the two, who are now living in a loft-space together so they could be more in the city, are doing what they can to make sure each other are getting the space that they need. And their relationship makes their fans very happy. But, at the same time, the two are always at the center of rumors that they've broken up — which is clear reading through the comments on their social media posts.
Hopefully the two are happy, and stay together as long as they make each other happy.
