Last night (Dec 5), Selena Gomez appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy asked her if she actually had a crush on Cole. Laughing, Selena then said: "Yes, I did...and my first kiss was his brother!" Worried that the audience thought she kissed Dylan out of her own choice, Selena then specified: "On Tv! They wrote it in the script that way."

Jimmy then asked Selena if she was bummed that she didn't get to do the scene with Cole and Selena explained: "I can't say that. That wasn't what it was. I think I felt much better that it wasn't him 'cause I think I would have probably been an idiot." Jimmy then asked if Cole was the love of Selena's life and Selena joked: "He was the love of my life."

Selena actually posted a video of her childhood Cole Sprouse doodles in 2019. Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "Apparently my heart was very conflicted between Juan and Cole Sprouse when I was 11.." Cole then commented by joking: "Always Juan-upping me."

In 2018, Dylan revealed that Selena was actually his first kiss. He told Young Hollywood: "There’s a lot of sad depressing first kiss stories. I was a chubby lad and I wasn’t very successful with women for a long time. I think my first kiss was on a set and I think it might have been with Selena Gomez."
