How Long Have Thomas Doherty and Dove Cameron Been Dating?

Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty Have Been Dating Longer Than You Probably Realised

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 13: Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty attend the Hulu's

Disney stars Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty make such a sweet couple that it's hard to imagine a time when they weren't together. You might have even forgot that Cameron used to be engaged to someone else. Before she and Doherty connected on the set of Descendants 2 in late 2016, Cameron was in a relationship with her Liv and Maddie costar Ryan McCartan, who she dated for about three years before he popped the question in April 2016. Unfortunately, less than six months later, the two decided to go their separate ways, and by December, Cameron was igniting romance rumours with a new suitor.

The first hint that Cameron and her Descendants 2 costar were maybe more than friends came when Doherty shared a cute video on Instagram of him and Cameron sharing a cheeseburger, which he simply captioned, "We share food." Fans grew even more suspicious after Doherty tweeted a flirty pic from when Cameron visited him in London, and when Cameron then posted a picture of a shirtless Doherty on Instagram. In February 2017, Cameron finally told People that she and Doherty were an item, which was a surprise to exactly no one. "We're dating," she said. "I'm keeping it sort of . . . we're keeping it to ourselves, because everything is just so [much] more romantic and real when it's yours and it's private."

Cameron and Doherty have been looking cute AF together for over three years now, and in November 2019, Cameron even told Entertainment Tonight that she could see herself possibly marrying her boo down the road. "I think, if I'm going to marry anyone, it's going to be him," she said. The singer and actress also admitted that she's "super emotional and embarrassing" when it comes to her longtime partner. "I cry, like, every day when I'm with him because . . . he's just the most pure, loving, selfless, generous, kind [person]," she said. "His life is about the people that he loves and I feel so lucky to be loved by someone like that." Um, cute alert! Here's hoping these two spend many more years making each other happy (and sharing all of their adorable moments on social media so we can live vicariously through them).
