In a new Instagram post, the 26-year-old CW actress went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, model and photographer Grayson Vaughn, 28. In the photo, Mendes can be seen with a cute lil baby pink bucket hat, hugging her new mans (and tagging him) in front of a small plane.
And, while we don't know for certain how long the pair have been dating, it seems they’re going to give this ol long distance thing a shot: “that long distance kind of love,” Mendes captioned the post.
But, who exactly is Camila Mendes's new boyfriend and how long have they been dating? Keep reading for all the info.
Who is Camila Mendes’s new boyfriend, Grayson Vaughn?
Camila Mendes’s new BF, Grayson Vaughn (seen on the right in the below pic) is a 28-year-old model and photographer.
Over on his Instagram, he takes stunning pics of his friends and strikingly captures moments in history. A quick glance and his work ranges from a shot of the iconic police car in downtown Los Angeles, with the words “ACAB” spray painted onto the side, that was allegedly set on fire in the midst of the chaos from the LAPD and Black Lives Matter protests, to these smoking pics of his girlfriend’s on-screen love interest KJ Apa.
It's no secret the Riverdale cast are close, so we wouldn't be surprised if Vaughn is already an honorary member of the gang. Madelaine Petsch, who plays Cheryl Blossom on the show, dropped that they already have a playful nickname for him, commenting on one of Vaughn's pics of Apa, "Wtf why haven’t you taken cool photos of me yet Grays."
How long has Camila Mendes been dating Grayson Vaughn?
Sources told StyleCaster that the pair have reportedly been dating for three months as of September 2020. And, from what we can gather, the two were first seen together in LA in mid July on a cheeky iced coffee run.
When Mendes’s Instagram official couple post was first published, her pal and 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman was excited to confess they were “FINALLY PUBLIC,” implying they’d been seeing each other for a while.
Prior to dating Vauhgn, Mendes was romantically linked to Riverdale co-star Charles Menton, who she split from in October last year after the pair decided to focus on their personal projects.
"They both have movie projects separately and it's been a lot on both their plates," the source told E! News at the time. "Nothing in particular happened, they just both felt busy and overwhelmed and it was a lot of pressure on them."
