Zendaya and Tom Holland reportedly skipped the Oscars this year and were spotted holding hands in London. Turns out, Zendaya wants to spend some quality time with boyfriend Tom and his family.
The Euphoria star was photographed by a fan at London’s Richmond Park. She and Tom were captured holding hands while out on a date on 11th March. The couple was also spotted hanging out with Holland’s mother Nikki Holland the next day.
Tom’s family lives in London
Tom and Zendaya have been spotted in London before where Tom’s family currently resides. In 2022, the lovebirds were photographed out at Holland’s family home, with Zendaya’s arm affectionately around Holland.
A few days before their London visit this year, Zendaya was spotted in Paris for Louis Vuitton’s Fall Winter 2023 show.
Zendaya reveals what she feels about Tom
Tom Holland and Zendaya first met in 2016 while filming for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The pair kept their relationship private for several years before Tom made it official in 2022. Holland posted a photograph of the two on Zendaya’s birthday, with the caption: “My MJ”.
Zendaya recently revealed what she felt about Holland in an interview with InStyle. Zendaya said,
“He’s a fun time. Very charismatic, can make anybody feel comfortable and have a good laugh and a good chat. A good chat – I sound so British.”
Holland has also spoken about what he feels about Zendaya. Tom told British GQ in 2021 that being in a relationship with Zendaya has helped him grow in his career. He said,
“Talking to Zendaya’s helped me a lot, actually. I used to come across sometimes as a bit of a d–k to fans, mainly as I was always so surprised that they’d want a picture with me or signature or whatever. I’d have a typical Londoner reaction, one of instant suspicion: ‘Why are you talking to me?'”
The English actor admitted it was “very nerve-wracking” to pursue relationships in the public eye.
“It means that if you are dating someone, you have to be really conscious of their feelings, because if something does happen between the two of you, it’s not just happening between the two of you, it’s happening in front of the entire world,”
“And it can be very complicated. It’s one of the things I worry about most, of all the things in my career.”
Tom’s first meeting with Zendaya was weird for him
Zendaya told Variety in 2017 that she and Tom remember the first day they met very differently. The HBO star recalled,
“He says when we first met it was super awkward because he went for a handshake and I went for a hug. But I don’t remember that. I thought it was cool.”
She also called Tom one of her best friends and revealed how it feels to be with Tom. She said,
“He’s literally one of my best friends. This past how[ever] many months, we’ve had to do press tours together. There’s very few people that will understand what that’s like at 20 years old.”
Zendaya’s family love Tom
While Tom’s family loves Zendaya, Zendaya’s family too admires the Spider-Man star. In 2017, Tom was spotted with Zendaya’s family at Bobby Van’s Central Park South. They were celebrating the premiere of Zendaya’s second movie, The Greatest Showman. An onlooker told Us Weekly that Tom charmed her parents during the dinner party. A source told the magazine,
“Tom has met Zendaya’s family and they love him.”
It seems like Tom and Zendaya are going strong. It’s possible they could take their relationship a step further in the near future.
