“Happiest of birthdays to the one who makes me the happiest <3,” she subtitled the post, labeling Holland in the photograph.
Holland talked about his bond with Zendaya and his craving to keep his own life hidden during a November interview with GQ: “One of the downsides of our fame is that privacy isn’t really in our control anymore, and a moment that you think is between two people that love each other very much is now a moment that is shared with the entire world.”
The Uncharted entertainer added, “I’ve always been really adamant to keep my private life private, because I share so much of my life with the world anyway. We sort of felt robbed of our privacy. I don’t think it’s about not being ready. It’s just that we didn’t want to.”
Holland lauded Zendaya, telling GQ she has been “instrumental” in his life throughout recent years. The entertainer likewise let the magazine know that having others get a brief look at her own life is both “befuddling and obtrusive.”
“”The equal sentiment [we both share] is just that when you really love and care about somebody, some moments or things, you wish were your own,” Zendaya made sense of. “I think loving someone is a sacred thing and a special thing and something that you want to deal with and go through and experience and enjoy amongst the two people that love each other.”
Expecting to stay quiet about their confidential lives, Holland added that the pair will have a conversation about uncovering subtleties of their relationship when all is good and well.
“This isn’t my story. It’s our story. And we’ll talk about what it is when we’re ready to talk about it together,” he said at that point.
