Who Is KJ Apa Dating? And Who Does He Ship Archie With On Riverdale?


Who is Riverdale star KJ Apa dating in real life? Who does he think Archie Andrews should end up with?

The Riverdale Season 2 premiere is finally here and fans are going crazy over fan theories as well as the possible arrival of Sabrina Spellman in the Riverdale universe. But, one thing's for certain. Fans are going absolutely bonkers over the romances between Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart) as well as Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) and Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes). While there have been rumors of the two couples actually dating in real-life, that has yet to be confirmed. However, fans can be relieved to hear that Riverdale KJ Apa is basically a real-life Archie Andrews, except for his luck with the ladies. So, who is KJ Apa dating?

Who Is Riverdale's KJ Apa Dating In Real-Life?

Despite being in a full-fledged love triangle with Betty and Veronica in Riverdale, it looks like this New Zealand hunk is nothing like his character when it comes to love. In fact, he's never has a girlfriend. So, for those of you wondering, KJ Apa is not dating anyone in real-life as of this moment.

But, this certainly doesn't mean that he isn't as sensitive and amazing as his character. Apa typically doesn't turn down a photo with a fan. "I don't think I've ever said no to a photo, just because I know how big of a deal it is for these girls to ask," Apa says in an interview with Cosmopolitan.

Much like Archie, Apa is also a musician, an athlete, and he's incredibly close to his dad.

"My dad is my biggest role model," Apa says. "His legitimate favorite thing to do is hang out with his kids and his wife. When I need to get emotional in scenes, all I need to do is imagine my dad sitting at a café alone, drinking a coffee."

Who Does KJ Apa Want Archie Andrews To Be With In Riverdale? Betty Or Veronica?

While it seemed like Archie was hooking up with everyone in Riverdale Season 1, Apa reveals who he would like Archie to end up with on Riverdale. And surprise, surprise! He's a total Archie and Veronica fan.

"I think after that first season of him bouncing from girl to girl, it's nice to see him in a proper, stable relationship. It's good for Archie," Apa says.

But, when it comes to his own love life, Apa isn't ready to date anyone anytime soon. "I think I'm just waiting for the right time, right girl," Apa says. "I'm pretty busy at the moment. I don't know how much I have to offer to someone right now."
