Diggie Smalls and Maddie Rooney


Dating, In Love With Each Other



Portrayed by

Ryan McCartan and Dove Cameron

Diggie and Maddie are close friends and are dating. They were originally the main romantic couple of the show, alongside Liv and Holden.

They are portrayed by Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan, who were engaged in real life (see: Dove and Ryan (relationship)). However, Choose-A-Rooney was filmed before they got engaged.

Relationship History

Maddie and Diggie’s relationship starts before the first episode of season one. Before, they liked each other for a long time. Both of them love and play basketball. Both, Maddie and Diggie are the captains of the Porcupines basketball teams. Maddie states that Diggie is just as competitive as she is. Besides that, they have a lot of similarities.

Maddie confesses to her twin sister Liv that she likes Diggie but doesn’t want to ask him to school dance incase he rejects her. Liv then disguises herself as Maddie and asks Diggie to the dance, however Diggie says no and says he doesn’t like her in that way. Later that day, Diggie confesses to Maddie that the only reason he said no was because he knew it was Liv. Maddie is shocked but Diggie states “your sister has your face, but I know you Maddie” . Diggie then proceeds to ask Maddie to the prom and she says yes.

Together they attend the school dance in Twin-A-Rooney. They start being "officially 'in like'" for the first time in Move-A-Rooney, in which Liv also outs herself to be a 'Miggie' shipper. Soon after, in BFF-A-Rooney, they officially started dating. Maddie’s father Pete becomes very protective over Maddie when she starts dating Diggie, but soon warms up to Diggie.

After Maddie gets accepted to Junior Olympics in Flashback-A-Rooney, it is revealed in Premiere-A-Rooney that Diggie left for a year abroad in Thunderbania. After almost breaking up because of a misunderstanding, they shared their first kiss at midnight on New Year's Eve-A-Rooney, during a webcam chat.

Gift-A-Rooney marks their "meet-a-versary". Both originally wanted to gift each other with the same thing (sweatbands). Liv thinks Maddie won’t find Diggie’s gift romantic so she hides it and instead gives Maddie a porcupine - which Maddie hates. Maddie almost breaks up with Diggie and explains to Liv that sweatbands have a romantic meaning to them both as it reminds them of the first time they met. Liv explains everything to Maddie which causes them to argue but to make it up to her sister, she has Diggie fly in. This marks their first face-to-face reunion after a couple of months.

After 8 months, Diggie returns in the episode Flugelball-A-Rooney. They had trouble setting things like they used to be and after Diggie reveals that he wants to see more of the world than Steven's point, Maddie tells him how she feels about him being gone so far away. This leads to Diggie breaking up with Maddie.

Diggie regrets his decision to break up with Maddie and shows that he still has feelings for her in Video-A-Rooney, so he signed up to help film The Dream's music video in the hope of getting to spend time with Maddie.

In Frame-A-Rooney, it is revealed that Maddie also still has feelings for Diggie, as she, while she was jogging, was watching Diggie play basketball by himself from behind a tree.

They try to out-fun each other at the SPARF-A-Rooney's SPARF festival, by trying to make each other jealous. They both take someone the other hates. (Maddie went with Todd Stetson while Diggie went with South Salamanca, who flirted with Diggie and caused Maddie to be jealous in BFF-A-Rooney). In the end, though, their dates end up together while the two of them are "competing" against each other, both stating that "they won".

Diggie tells Liv that he still likes Maddie in Champ-A-Rooney, and wanted to get back together with her and stay in Steven's Point if there was a chance they would get back together. Maddie had to say a speech at her basketball game when Liv caught Maddie just in time and explained everything. Maddie struggled with what to do as she couldn’t be in two places at once and didn’t wanna let her team down, while also wanting to go and talk to Diggie. Liv told Maddie to swap clothes with her and that she would say Maddie’s speech while Maddie went to go and talk to Diggie - which Maddie agreed to. Liv and Maddie’s mother Karensoon noticed that Liv was disguised as Maddie, however their father Pete could not tell that “Maddie” was actually Liv.

Due to some unlucky happenings, Maddie doesn't catch Diggie in time at the school, however inContinued-A-Rooney, she catches him at the airport. They decide it is time to move on, as Maddie did not want to stop Diggie from following his dreams but still they stayed good friends and say that they will possibly get back together when he is back and the time is right.

In Co-Star-A-Rooney, Karen tries to help Maddie overcome her feelings for Diggie with a "cleansing ceremony" by sending away all the stuff Diggie ever gave to her among her feelings. She reveals in Secret-Admirer-A-Rooney that she is not willing or ready to start dating again because of what happened between her and Diggie.

In an Scoop-A-Rooney, Maddie is mistaken for Liv when TV presenter Nancy O' Dell takes a picture of Maddie and her then new boyfriend Josh and puts in on TV claiming Liv and Josh to be boyfriend and girlfriend when really Liv is going out with Holdenbut wanted to keep it quiet because of all the attention it would gain from the media and soon Diggie returned to Wisconsin as he knew that the picture was Maddie not Liv as he can tell them apart and he couldn’t bare to see Maddie with another boy so he came back for her.

In its penultimate episode Choose-A-Rooney, Diggie confesses to Maddie that he had been regretting leaving her when he was in Australia. However, she states that she is dating Josh and is happy. Later on, when she talks with Liv, she admits that she still has feelings for Diggie but is torn between him and Josh. Liv is sure that Maddie still wants to be with Diggie after she sees the way Maddie looks at Diggie and sees them having fun laughing and smiling together at Gemma and Johnny Nimbus' wedding. Diggie almost gives up on getting back together with Maddie, but after Liv suggests a romantic gesture, he decides to give it a go. He performed Liv's song As Long As I Have You for Maddie which led to her Josh seeing the way Maddie looked at Diggie. He states that Maddie had never looked at him the way she looks at Diggie and that she should follow her heart - which leads to them breaking up. Finally, Maddie and Diggie get a chance to "talk" and as they were about to kiss, Joey almost interrupts them once again but fails thanks to Liv and Artie who realized what was about to happen just in time to shove him out of the way. When they finally kissed, the fireworks which were supposed to go off during the wedding ceremony instead went off during their kiss.

When Maddie moved to LA to go to her freak college, Diggie had to remain in Stevens Point to finish schooling, leading them to continue a long-distance relationship, though Diggie payed occasional visits to come and see Maddie. He also surprised her a few days before Christmas thanks to the help of Liv - which Maddie was very great full for.

Miggie Songs

  • 500 Miles (I'm Gonna Be) by The Proclaimers - Diggie would do what seems to be anything for Maddie, and some prime examples include when Diggie leaves Australia to come back for Maddie when he sees her with Josh, and when he misses his flight to Australia to travel from LA back to Steven's Point just so he could say goodbye to her. "And I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more" very accurately describes the numerical distance that Diggie would travel/has traveled to get to Maddie.
  • A Little Too Not Over You by David Archuleta - After their breakup in Flugelball-A-Rooney, it is revealed that Diggie and Maddie still have feelings for each other, though they don't reveal it, like in SPARF-A-Rooney when they are too afraid to ask each other directly to SPARF, so they ask other people.
  • A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton - Like "500 Miles (I'm Gonna Be)", this song describes the distance that Maddie has traveled/would travel to see Diggie. In Continued-A-Rooney, Maddie travels the 2,000-mile distance from WI to LA just to catch Diggie before he leaves, and when she fails, she buys tickets to fly to Australia just so she can see him again.
  • As Long As I Have You by Dove Cameron - Diggie sings this song to Maddie in Choose-A-Rooney. This song describes the willingness for two people to be together despite their differences and hardships, and that connects to Miggie's relationship because they get back together, despite all of the hurt and experiences they've been through together.
  • Falling For You by Colbie Caillat - Up until Maddie confesses her feelings for Diggie in 1x13, she is shown to have a big crush on Diggie and that she really wants to be with him. In 1x13, when revealing her feelings, she's too scared to tell him, so she writes it on a basketball. Before she verbally reveals to Diggie her feelings, she hesitates, showing her nervousness.
  • Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne - When Maddie sees South flirting with Diggie in BFF-A-Rooney, she becomes jealous and wants to tell South to keep off of Diggie. Near the end of the episode, she claims to South and to Diggie that Diggie is her boyfriend.
  • Had Me @ Hello by Olivia Holt - When Maddie and Diggie first met (as shown in Gift-A-Rooney), it was shown that Maddie was immediately infatuated with Diggie, acting giggly and awkward.
  • I Really Like You by Carly Rae Jepson - From the very first episode of season 1, it is shown that Maddie and Diggie really, really, really, really, really, really like each other. When they admit their feelings to one another in Move-A-Rooney, they do it by saying, "I like you." The song easily describes Maddie and Diggie's nervous actions towards each other due to extremely smitten feelings.
  • Jealous by Nick Jonas - In SPARF-A-Rooney, Maddie goes to SPARF with Todd Stetson, and Diggie's jealousy causes Diggie to take South to SPARF, causing Maddie to become jealous as well. Diggie comes back for Maddie in Scoop-A-Rooney because he saw a picture of her with Josh. He doesn't seem to like that the two are together as he continues to pursue getting Maddie back after his return.
  • Nobody Compares by One Direction - It's very imminent that Maddie and Diggie's breakup takes its toll on Diggie, and even afterwards, he continues to really want to be around her. In Twin-A-Rooney, Diggie is completely stunned by Maddie in a dress, and he also seems googly about her more formal appearance in Choose-A-Rooney - Also in that episode, Maddie dismisses him frequently to be with Josh, and it's very obvious that he's hurt and sad when she does.
  • One Thing by One Direction - Throughout the series, Diggie is shown to be fairly sheepish and soft-spoken when it comes to Maddie, similar to the lines in the song, "I've tried playing it cool, but when I'm looking at you, I can't ever be brave 'cause you make my heart race" and "You keep making me weak, frozen and can't breathe."
  • Pretending from Glee - Maddie and Diggie show several times throughout the series a reluctance to tell each other how they're feeling, like in Season 1 when they like each other but don't tell each other until halfway through the season, and in Season 2 when they still have feelings for each other after breaking up but they don't express it until Diggie has to leave for Australia.
  • True Love by Dove Cameron - This song heavily describes the regret that Maddie and Diggie feel after breaking up in Flugelball-A-Rooney since afterwards, it is shown that they still have feelings for one another. When it's time for Diggie to move to Australia, they both go very out of their ways to come back to one another even though at this point, they are still broken up.
  • Where Your Feet Should Fall by Spider Cider - "There is nothing you can do to make me fall out of love with you" describes Diggie's feelings towards Maddie, and this is shown various times, a big one being when Diggie comes back for Maddie in Scoop-A-Rooney and is calm and kind towards her, even with the inkling that she is seeing someone else. Regardless of the times Diggie has traveled, the pair have always gotten back together.
  • Worldwide by Big Time Rush - This song emphasizes the long-distance relationship between Diggie and Maddie and how they still manage to maintain a great connection, regardless of the fact that they're countries apart.
  • You Are The Reason by Calum Scott - This song, especially the chorus, perfectly explains how Diggie and Maddie would go anywhere and do anything just to be with the other ("I'd climb every mountain, and swim every ocean, just to be with you, and fix what I've broken"), especially shown in Champ-A-Rooney, Continued-A-Rooney, Scoop-A-Rooney, and Choose-A-Rooney.

Maddie: You know I do. I got this really cool knight costume and it is going to melt your face off!
Diggie: Sweet. Hey I'll go as that too then, maybe we could win the couples' costume contest?
Maddie: Yeah, okay...

Diggie: Er, and you know when I mean couple I mean the contest category and... well you get it.
Diggie and Maddie: WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?!

Maddie: Er, I'm a knight. We said we were gonna be knights.
Diggie: Oh, I thought you meant like 'the night'.
Maddie: Are you kidding? We're never going to be able to enter the couples' contest now.
Diggie: No, sure we can. We're a couple of k/nights! Hah.

Maddie: Yep, that is us. A couple, haha, of k/nights. Hah, if there was one more of us we'd be a few! But there's not because we're a couple of k/nights!
Maddie [confessional]: I have no idea what he means but I like that he's saying it. Diggie [confessional]: Are we a couple? Are we not a couple? GIVE ME A SIGN, WOMAN!

Sweet 16-A-Rooney

Diggie: Don't worry, birthday girl, your hero's here. Maddie: [Maddie takes the plug out] Hey, superhero, plug's right here.


Maddie: 'Sup, Diggie?

Diggie: 'Sup, Rooney?
Maddie: 'Sup with your hair? You did not get a haircut just because my dad told you to.
Diggie: No, not at all... I totally needed a trim - do you think he'll like it?
Maddie: Diggie, you can't let him push you around like this. I mean, your hair was a hot mess but that's not the point.
Diggie: I can't help it okay? I want him to like me, he's your dad and you and me are... whatever we are.
Maddie: Totally, whatever... um. You just need to find something that you and my dad will like and bond over that.
Diggie: Oh yeah, okay great let's see. He likes growling at me!
Maddie: Oh, you know what else he likes? Barbecuing.
Diggie: Grilling sure beats growling. And if he starts to like me I can help you prep for you driver's test.

Maddie: Aw, that's so sweet.


Diggie: You're gonna move away without saying bye?

Maddie: I was going to, but I got really hurt when you blew me off after reading my note.
Diggie: What note?
Maddie: The one I wrote on the basketball? Like one does when one is terrified of getting hurt, like one did?
Diggie: ...I must have smudged it with my basketball pig sweat. What did it say?
Maddie: I like you, Diggie.

Diggie: I like you too, Maddie. (Maddie blushes)
Diggie: If you're moving, I want you to have this and not because you're cool, because this means something to me like you do. (Diggie puts his jacket around Maddie)
Maddie: Maddie and Diggie are officially in like with each other.
Liv: (squeals) Finally the birth of 'Miggie'!
Maddie: So... 'sup?

Diggie: Stuff.
Maddie: ...Bam what.

(They smile at each other)


Maddie: So...'sup?

Diggie: Stuff.

(They kiss)


Maddie: Hey, I hope you don't mind that painting of my boyfriend... Maddie: 'Cause, like, I know that it's kind of goofy, but no matter how far apart we are, I look up at it, and I think, like, y'know, we're gonna be okay. (referring to herself and Diggie)


Maddie: I just got the grant to build tiny houses.

Diggie: No way!
Maddie: Yeah...
Diggie: That's great! Congratulations!
Maddie: Thank you...
Diggie: ...What?
Maddie: ...It means that I have to leave for New Orleans tomorrow... which then means that we can't spend the summer together.
Diggie: ...I don't... understand.
Maddie: I know. I know, I mean, I'm-I'm so sorry, Diggie. Like, I know you came down here to spend the whole summer with me, but I just... I really feel like this is something I have to go do!
Diggie: N-no, I don't understand why that means we can't spend the summer together. ...I'll come with you!
Diggie: Maddie, wherever you are is where I want to be.
Maddie: I love you, Digbert Smalls.
Diggie: I love you, too.

(They kiss)
