It’s been nine years since Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas were romantically involved, but these two are proof positive you can remain friends with an ex. The two have always spoken highly of each other, and supported each other’s work. And in the wake of Selena Gomez’s recent kidney transplant, Nick Jonas isn’t shy about sharing just how remarkable he thinks she is.

In an interview with Sirius XM’s Hits 1, Nick Jonas confessed that, like the rest of us, he was completely in the dark regarding Gomez’ kidney transplant. But when he heard the news, he was incredibly happy for his former girlfriend.

Nick Jonas has previously praised Selena Gomez for her intelligence, talent, and kindness, but we’re sure she appreciates his support during what must be a challenging time. Gomez needed a kidney transplant due to her lupus, a condition about which she has been incredibly candid.

The donor was her longtime friend Francia Raisa (shout out to Francia and all the amazing real-life angels out there who donate organs), and it looks like Selena is surrounded by tons of support — even from her ex! We wish her a speedy recovery, and thank Nick for giving us total #exgoals.
