Just when we didn’t think social media could steal anymore of our lives, Insta-relationship-status-confirmation became a thing. Not just putting up a picture of you and your new plus one, that’s so passe. Now it's all about sharing a pic with something that belongs to the other person, preferably one which they've shown on their feed before.

If you’re just a ‘normal’ person, there’s no reason anyone will notice — though by all means, give it a try — BUT if you’re famous, with a load of eagle-eyed followers, there’ll be a major hype.

The Dog

Liam and Miley, the ultimate are-they-arent-they-are-they-arent-they couple right now, seem to have confirmed things over Instagram — with the help of his dog. He posted one with her, then she did… An engagement, who knows — but something’s offish.

And they actually confirmed things with Miley's latest Instapic, combining the dog AND Liam...

The Thing

It’s not just dogs… After rumours have been swirling about Cara Delevingne and St Vincent splitting, the singer seems to have confirmed they’re still on — if her latest Instagram is anything to go by. With the Dom Perignon, there’s bacon in a box and anyone who knows the super even a bit will know it’s her thing (so much so she has a TATTOO of the pork product). It’s also got her actual arm in, which is arguably more concrete evidence.

The House

Then there’s the classic oops-yes-that’s-their-house shot. Exhibit A – Chelsey Weimar, the 19-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, who was rumoured to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio. As well as a couple of dinner dates, the potential-relationship went public after Chelsey Insta-shared a selfie which was alledgedly in his house.

The Shoes

We always thought they made a very cute couple, so we were psyched to see Brooklyn Beckham and Chloe Moretz Insta-confirming their relationship. Baby Becks posted a picture of his and our cover girl's matchy matchy Vans skate shoes with the caption: 'Matching <3 Missing this one'. Ahhh, young love.

The Zoomed Out

Is it them?! Are they just teasing us?! K-Pez and Orlando are the masters of low-key celebrity relationships right now, so it's totally NOT a shock that this is their first public Instagram together. We'd recognise that mop of dark hair anywhere…

The Initial Necklace

Everyone's getting in on this act — the internet's wondering if Gigi's 'Z' necklace is proof her and Zayn are still together, and if Drake wearing a H means he and Hailey Baldwin are a thang? We're not loving this cryptic personalised jewellery thang... Too far.

The Team Garms

Kendall Jenner was rumoured to be dating basketball player Jordan Clarkson, after they were seen out together last month, and she confirmed things with a Lakers — which is his team, natch — varsity jacket Insta-pic. CLASSIC. And now Miley's been at it (kind of), sharing a selfie of herself wearing a top saying 'Hemsworth' on.

Personalised Stuff

Gigi and Zayn are back awn if these Nutella jars are anything to go by... #RelationshipGoals indeed.
