Tom Holland May Not Actually Be That Serious With His Girlfriend, Olivia Bolton
We know Tom Holland best for his role in Spider-Man, but it seems his personal life is in the public eye more than ever before. While he and co-star Zendaya worked closely together while in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans long hoped that the two would eventually date. To everyone’s shock, their picture-perfect connection really was just a friendship after all. Now, Holland is reportedly dating someone new.
The movie star certainly keeps his personal life close to the chest, but fans are wondering how serious his relationship with his girlfriend really is. And he may have just given a subtle hint that he’s not ready to settle down just yet. Here’s what happened.
Tom Holland has reportedly been seeing childhood friend Olivia Bolton
While loyal Spider-Man followers convinced themselves that Holland and Zendaya were secretly seeing each other despite them claiming they were just best friends, Holland proved everyone wrong when he attended a recent event holding hands with a mystery blonde woman. Heavy notes the media first saw them together at the British Summer Time Hyde Park Festival in London. They alternately held drinks and held hands, signaling that they’re romantically involved. And the mystery blonde woman’s name is Olivia Bolton.
While it may seem like she’s a newcomer in Holland’s life, such is apparently not the case. The publication notes Bolton and Holland have known each other since they were children. And one of Holland’s brothers has a photo on Instagram that seemingly verifies that the two families are quite familiar with each other. This photo shows Bolton and Holland’s siblings together. Their parents are also reportedly friends on Facebook.
They’ve allegedly been seeing each other for months
It feels like just yesterday when media outlets were getting photo proof of Holland’s relationship with Bolton. But according to Seventeen, the two have been seeing each other for months and have just managed to keep their relationship out of the public eye. Now that it’s all out in the open, though, The Sun notes the two of them are happy to not be keeping secrets. As a source allegedly told the publication, “Tom’s been dogged with rumors about who he’s dating so finally being public with Olivia has been a massive relief for him.”
Since they’ve known each other since childhood, one would think that they may be willing to jump head-over-heels into love with each other, too. But the source also noted that “it took some time for Tom and Olivia to realize the connection between them,” so maybe it’ll be a slower road than many expected. Either way, it seems they have the approval of family and friends. And Holland is allegedly “totally smitten,” too.
Holland liked Love Island star Lucie Donlan’s Instagram post
All of the info regarding Bolton thus far seems great — but Holland may have just proved his relationship isn’t as solid and serious as originally thought. Lucie Donlan from Love Island, a British dating reality TV show, recently posted this photo of her in a tight swimsuit. And eagle-eyed followers noticed Holland liked it, Cosmopolitan reports. Not only that, but the publication also adds that out of Holland’s 258 people he follows on the ‘gram, Donlan is one of them.
So, is Holland just showing some support for a friend, or could the “like” mean something more? We’re not so sure, but as far as we know, Donlan may be single — and she’s no stranger to celebrity flings. She’s only 21, however, and those who know her have spoken about how she’s probably not looking for true love. and RadioTimes also noted how Donlan said she’s into “the typical surfer look,” which Holland doesn’t have. She also added that she has the tendency to “cut boys off very quickly. … If they really like me, I can be like ‘Whatever, bye.’ I can switch off really quickly.”
It seems Holland and Donlan probably aren’t a match made in heaven. And Holland is reportedly happy with Bolton, so we doubt that’ll change. Even so, the Instagram “like” certainly makes us wonder!
