So, who is Peyton List dating?

Previously, Peyton dated fellow actor Cameron Monaghan (Shameless, Gotham) from 2017 to 2019. The couple met while filming Anthem of a Teenage Prophet, a small-budget independent film with a closely-knit cast atmosphere. Peyton and Cameron quietly ended their relationship in 2019. In January 2019, a since-deleted tweet from Cameron surfaced where he directly @'d his ex.

"Hey @PeytonList, figured now was as good a time as any to post this. The video was taken on the set of Anthem about two days after we had started dating. I was obviously smitten. Thanks for sharing nearly two amazing years together. Love you and wish you the best," Cameron said, which many fans interpreted as an official breakup announcement.

On May 14, 2021, Peyton posted a TikTok video in which she was asked who her favorite Cobra Kai character was. Peyton responded shyly, "Hawk. Hawk is my favorite character in Cobra Kai." Hawk is played by her co-star, Jacob Bertrand, who's also her rumored new beau! Many fans interpreted her repeated side-eye as an implication that Jacob was in the room with her when she responded to the video.

He added, "We've been friends for a while. I met her when I was like, 15. I was actually tight friends with her brother Spencer, so that was kinda awkward to be like, 'Hey man, I like your sister.' But yeah, we had fun on set and then hung out off set." It sounds like fans who have been speculating about Peyton and Jacob's relationship since 2021 have been right all along!
