Fans React to Rachel Zegler’s Relationship with Josh Andres Rivera

Fans of Zegler and Rivera’s relationship seem to be highly receptive on the internet.

Someone else also questioned the actress whether Rivera was the same person she acted with, adding, “hey isn’t that the guy from that one movie?” “So I think this does prove their dating?” said one Instagram user. I was always curious whether they were simply best friends or boyfriend and girlfriend.” From ‘West Side Story’ to Real Life Zegler and Rivera apparently initially met on the set of West Side Story. They subsequently became close while shooting the film, prompting viewers to wonder whether they were also dating.

 

The romance suspicions were fanned anytime they uploaded images together, but it peaked on Valentine’s Day 2021 when the actress tweeted, “I adore Josh Andres Rivera.” Despite the fact that the post hinted heavily at her connection with her co-star, it was not yet official. Following the incident, the diva shared a series of images on Instagram in December 2021, emphasizing 2021 incidents that made her feel “huge love I have never felt before.”

The first photo was of her embracing Rivera, who was dressed in a festive sweater. “Spending Christmas Eve with a dude I’ve never met before, maybe you know him, he looks really cool— like he might be the love child of Iron Man and John Wick, dunno,” she added, explaining her photo with him. Similarly, in her November 2021 post, she wrote that she discovered her “best buddy in the entire world” after acting in West Side Story. Fans quickly pointed out that she was implying Rivera.
