Summer lovin’.

CW’s Riverdale actress Camila Mendes has a hot new relationship that has blossomed this summer. She has reportedly been dating her beau, Victor Houston, for a couple of months.

Victor Houston is an old friend of Camila’s who went to a nearby high school that she attended in Florida. They reconnected post-graduation in New York, and the rest was history.

The couple has only recently begun posting about each other via social media. Cami had actually given a hint when she posted this picture three weeks prior to making her relationship public.

Camila opened up, explaining that dating someone out of the entertainment industry may be why it has been working out so well: “It’s somebody completely out of the industry. Dating people in the industry is tough, I did for a little bit. I’ve just dated actors. It’s hard when that’s your world. You only meet people through work and that can be really tough because you’re not necessarily meeting people that you’re similar to.”

She continued, “You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”

Houston posted on Instagram a selfie of the two captioning it simply, “Baby.” They also celebrated Camila’s birthday this past weekend along with friends in the Hamptons.
