Kiernan Shipka & Christian Coppola's Relationship Timeline Is Bewitching
Sabrina Spellman may have ended up with Nick Scratch at the end of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (and no, I don't want to talk about that series finale), but IRL, Sabrina's heart belongs to someone else. Kiernan Shipka and Christian Coppola's relationship timeline is a bit of a mystery, but the two have reportedly been together since at least July 2019, when they attended the Fendi Couture fashion show in Rome (and later shared some v cute pics from the event on Instagram). The maybe-couple has yet to confirm dating rumors themselves, but their many loved-up IG posts have me feeling pretty convinced they're the real deal.
Coppola (who's a "distant relative" of the famous Hollywood Coppola family, per Variety) is a director with a pretty impressive group of A-list friends, including Cole and Dylan Sprouse, who make frequent appearances on Coppola's IG grid. Though it's unclear if the director has been in any other serious relationships, Shipka reportedly dated Gary Oldman's son, Charlie, before sparking rumors with Coppola.
During a November 2018 interview with Seventeen, Kiernan said she was too busy to date at the moment, but it seems to me she's found time to romance Coppola. Here's everything I know about their ✨bewitching✨ relationship.
Shipka Made Her First Appearance On Coppola's IG In March 2018
Though it's unclear when or how they met, Shipka first appeared on Coppola's IG grid in March 2018, when he posted a pic of the actor eating a burger with the caption, "Kiernan, former vegan." He also shared a mushy post in October 2018 after CAOS dropped on Netflix.
"Had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful set over the summer and am still in awe of how hard this girl works," he captioned the pic. "Shadowing her during overnight shoots and watching how dedicated she is to bringing this character to life was both exhilarating and refreshing, and it inspired me to work harder myself. Bravo Kiernan and bravo @netflix for giving this role to the most deserving actress out there who also happens to be one of the most kind and compassionate people I've ever come across (in Hollywood and real life as well). Without you there is no Sabrina." Aww!

In December, she shared a pic in honor of Coppola's birthday, and soon after, Coppola posted a hilarious series of photos in which Shipka channeled various characters from The Sopranos.
I don't know about everyone else, but I'm fully convinced these two are an item.
