Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin engaged




The ‘Suite Life of Zack and Cody’ star, Dylan Sprouse, and Hungarian supermodel Barbara Palvin are officially engaged, as confirmed on June 15 in respective Instagram posts and a joint interview with V Magazine. The couple, who were first romantically linked in 2018, managed to keep their engagement a secret since Sprouse popped the question in September 2022.

A Relationship Unfolding On Their Terms

The two first sparked engagement rumors at the Mammoth Film Festival in March when Palvin was spotted wearing a giant diamond ring while supporting Sprouse at a screening of his upcoming movie, ‘The Duel’. However, they maintained their low-key approach and did not confirm the news at the time.

“We didn’t necessarily feel the need to be fully transparent with the public about that aspect of our engagement,” Sprouse told V Magazine. Echoing the sentiment, Palvin added, “I knew we were building this story up, so I’m very happy that we ended up doing it our way.”

Their Romance Timeline

  • 2017: Sprouse and Palvin first meet at a party.
  • 2018: The pair is romantically linked for the first time. They confirmed their relationship status by going Instagram official in August, followed by their red-carpet debut as a couple at a September New York Fashion Week party.
  • 2019: The couple makes headlines with their low-key date night preferences. “We like watching anime and chilling inside and eating ice cream together,” Sprouse shared with E! News. This year also sees Palvin becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel, with Sprouse quick to congratulate her on Instagram.
  • 2022: Engagement rumors spark in March during the Mammoth Film Festival. The couple finally confirmed their engagement in June.

Met In DMs and Built In Love

The couple’s love story began in an unconventional manner, with Sprouse first sliding into Palvin’s DMs, asking to hang out while he was visiting New York. Palvin didn’t respond for six months, and she later revealed why during a W Magazine interview. “I took my time,” she shared, “I knew I wasn’t in a good mindset at the time, and maybe deep inside, I knew that it could be something more.”

By November 2018, Palvin had clearly fallen for the Disney alum, openly declaring her love during an interview with Vogue Australia

Moving In Together and Building a Home

Fast-forward to early 2019, the lovebirds decided to share a nest in Brooklyn, New York. “We moved in; we only had 4 mental breakdowns!” Sprouse jokingly captioned a since-deleted photo of himself and Palvin in their new pad. Palvin also shared her excitement, posting a selfie with Sprouse with the caption, “Two worms officially in the big apple.”

Supporting Each Other’s Careers

Similarly, Palvin is a constant presence at Sprouse’s movie premieres. She has also been vocal about her admiration for him in interviews with fashion magazines. “I feel like I found the perfect guy,” she told Vogue Australia in 2019. “He’s very kind and gentle.”

Present and Future: Stepping Towards the Altar

As they prepare to tie the knot, Sprouse and Palvin continue to appear inseparable. In August 2022, the couple was seen walking hand-in-hand on the ‘White Noise’ red carpet at the Venice International Film Festival. Palvin looked stunning in a black sequin dress, while Sprouse turned heads in a black-and-white tuxedo.

Despite their high-profile status and busy careers, they continue to enjoy simple pleasures. “Honestly, we’re pretty low-key,” Dylan shared in a past interview, “We like watching anime and chilling inside and eating ice cream together. That’s kind of our thing.” This reflects in their social media posts as well, with both often sharing their love for board games, video games, and anime.


Love stories come in many forms, but Dylan Sprouse and Barbara Palvin’s journey stands out for their authenticity. Theirs is a tale that highlights the importance of patience, mutual respect, and understanding. Their decision to keep their engagement private until they were ready to share is a testament to their belief in living life at their own pace. As they prepare for marriage, fans around the world wish them all the best for the exciting journey ahead.
