One of Zendaya’s latest Instagram Stories recently sent the internet into a frenzy. It all started on Thursday, Sept. 21, when the Euphoria actress shared an innocent photo of her outfit. Since she was wearing a huge ring on her hand, fans naturally assumed Zendaya and Tom Holland had gotten engaged. The Dune star has since set the record straight on those engagement rumors. As it turns out, the couple isn’t ready to walk down the aisle just yet.
Are Zendaya and Tom Holland Engaged?
In her latest Instagram Story, Zendaya shared a video in which she explained her viral photo was just an innocent fit check and nothing more. “I can’t post anything, you guys,” Zendaya began, clearly in disbelief over the engagement rumors. The Disney alum then pointed out that her so-called engagement ring wasn’t even on her left hand, which should have been a sign that it was just an accessory. “I posted [the photo] for my hat. Like not for the ring on my right finger, you guys, seriously,” Zendaya said while laughing. “You think that’s how I would drop the news? You think, like, what!”
Although Zendaya has since deleted her video addressing the engagement rumors, the clip has been reposted online. She also appeared to delete and then re-upload her viral photo. “Let me just put the full body back so ya’ll can relax,” she captioned the much-discussed shot.
This wasn’t the first time Zendaya and Holland had been involved in engagement rumors. After confirming their relationship in July 2021, the couple were rumored to have taken the next step in their relationship that December when Zendaya flaunted a large ring on her Instagram Story. In the photo, Zendaya meant to show off her red, short hair with a mirror selfie. “It was time for a change,” she wrote. However, fans couldn’t take their eyes off the ring on her left hand. But of course, those engagement rumors proved to be untrue as well.
For now, it seems Zendaya and Holland aren’t in any rush to get married.
