Not a teenage witch… not yet a wiccan?
Kiernan Shipka is 19 years old and on top of the world as she’s slaying all of our screens in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
And after the 4th of July it looks like her man situation is looking pretty locked down as well!
Apologies to Habrina AND Nabrina shippers — it’s neither Ross Lynch nor Harvey Leatherwood who’s been the target of her love spell.
No, instead of a fellow actor, all the evidence is pointing to a director in a relationshipka with Kiernan.
On Thursday the Netflix star posed up a storm at the Fendi Couture fashion show in Rome with a particularly striking accessory: 26-year-old Christian Coppola.
She and the rising young director held hands stayed close on the red carpet, looking quite couple-y.
Afterward Kiernan posted this to her Instagram:
“My love” sounds pretty affirmative. Though “Fendi friends” maybe less so?
It was enough to pique the curiosity of fans. One asked directly:
“Are y’all dating?”
To which Kiernan replied directly with the little winking kissy face!
OK, obvi not official confirmation, but it’s pretty close!
If they aren’t together she’s certainly not making any attempt to shut down the rumors, that’s for sure.
So who is this guy anyway? Besides a certified cutie?
Your first thought is probably that he’s related to that Coppola family.
And you’d be right!
But that’s really misleading to be honest.
Unlike Nicolas Cage (who was born Nicolas Coppola) and Jason Schwartzman — who are nephews of Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola — or director Sofia Coppola, Francis’ daughter, Christian is pretty far removed from that part of the fam.
As he told Variety last year:
“I’m not close enough to get invited for Thanksgiving dinner. There’s no real direct connection.”
No one in his immediate family is in show business; his father is a realtor.
Even so Christian is making a name for himself in the same industry as his distant relatives. His short film Daddy, starring Ron Rifkin as an elderly widower who at the age of 80 hires his first male escort played by Dylan Sprouse, has been making its way around the festival circuit and is likely to lead to a feature.

Tremendously honored to announce via @variety my newest film "Daddy," starring Ron Rifkin and @dylansprouse and currently in post-production with @kristaworby producing. Words can't describe how special this film has become to me throughout the past few months. I promise it's worth the wait. Stay tuned. "After the death of his wife, an 80-year-old man checks into the Plaza Hotel to celebrate their first anniversary apart, hiring a male escort to take her place."
Over the past couple years he’s been an avid Hollywood photographer as well, taking snaps of the stars of shows like Stranger Things and Riverdale.
A couple months ago he made this creepy love triangle short for Netflix:
But that wasn’t his first time meeting Kiernan.
He has photos of her on his IG as far back as March of 2018.
And more recently…
Are they just good friends? Or did a working relationship lead to something more??
We guess for now, our best answer is “😘.”
