When we’re talking it teen couples, it’s hard to top Chloë Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham.

But it’s been a long road to love for the two – or at least, it has been for those of us watching.

Let’s take a look back on everything we have ever heard about the two as a couple, shall we?

August 2014
Murmurings that these two teens were seeing each other started nearly two years ago. They reportedly met during SoulCycle class, and would engaged in a little friendly competition during class. “”They cycle next to each other and are very cute,” a source told PEOPLE. “Always look to be cheering each other on with smiles.” Brooklyn, a source told PEOPLE, was “totally smitten” with Chloë.

And Beckham’s famous parents approved from the get-go. “Brooklyn is always chaperoned by one of his parents,” the source added. “But both David and Victoria must be okay with Chloë, because they will chat briefly with her and then leave them alone.”

The rumors of a coupling between the two were only heightened after they were spotted together at the Teen Choice Awards.

September 2014
And though she didn’t discuss a romantic relationship, Chloë spoke out about her friendship with Brooklyn in the September 2014 issue of Company, in particular, their shared love of skateboarding.

“Who’s better? I don’t know! I mean, he had a pretty small skateboard, and I had more of a long board,” she said. “I think he’s a risk taker, like a typical guy, weaving in and out of people. I’m a ‘safety boarder.’ I don’t want to break any bones!”

October 2014
She couldn’t stop talking about Beckham to interviewers, it seems. In the October 2014 issue of Teen Vogue, she talked about what she admires about her rumored boyfriend.

“What I find really interesting about Brooklyn – and what I really love about that kid – is that he is passionate about what he wants, which is to be a professional soccer player,” she told the magazine. “And I enjoy someone who is on my level with the seriousness kind of thing.”

January 2016
However, just over a year later, Chloë was claiming to Marie Claire that she wasn’t ready for a relationship, and that she was “not looking for a while.” She did give a telling sign of her romantic interests, saying that she wasn’t interested in dating someone older (Brooklyn is 16, Chloë is 19.)

“I don’t want to date older people, because I’m 18 and older people are more serious,” she said. “Then I kind of realized, I’ll go on dates, why not? And that’s kind of how I am right now.”

Later that month, the two were spotted hanging out in London. Though Chloë may not have been looking for anything serious, it seems to have found her anyways!

April 2016
Even more proof? Chloë, her mother and her brother joined the Beckhams for a family dinner at the Soho House in L.A. in April.

“It was a really fun family late-night dinner vibe,” a source told PEOPLE of the evening.

And the young lovebirds, it seemed, were definitely on. The source told PEOPLE that Chloë was stroking Brooklyn’s arm and he rested his head on her shoulder.

“They definitely seemed like a couple.”

Luckily for Chloë, she also seemed to hold on to Victoria Beckham’s approval.

“Victoria moved from her seat at one point to sit next to Chlo and they were having a long chat together,” the source said. “It was really sweet.”

After their dinner, Brooklyn posted an Instagram where he and Chloë cuddled close in an elevator. The adorable image was left captionless, leaving many to wonder Was this it? Are they really together?

He didn’t stop there. That same week, Brooklyn uploaded another cozy image of the two, this time alongside a telling heart emoji.

Clearly, Chloë is feeling the love too: She regrammed the image, and had been posting sneaky photos of her own all week.

First, she uploaded one of herself at the airport. Seems innocent enough, right? Wrong. The caption read “Just a mermaid.. Making her way to London.. To find her prince ” Guess who lives in London?!

Later on, she did a one a couple holding hands. We can’t be positive it’s Brooklyn – she didn’t tag him – but in this case, it’s safe to assume.

May 2016
The Instagrams just kept coming – and they only got more informative. Brooklyn posted another image, this time of his foot next to hers, both clad in checker-print Vans. “Matching,” he wrote, accompanied by a heart emoji. “Missing this one.”

After all, the couple that dresses together, stays together!

And you can only hide the truth for so long! After nearly two years of whispers, Chloë confirmed that she and Brooklyn were indeed in a relationship during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live!

“We’re in a relationship, it’s fine, it’s no biggie,” she said. “I think the more I don’t make it mysterious the more people don’t care, so yes, we’re in a relationship,” she said.

Thank you, Chloë, for clearing up this year-plus-long mystery.
