In one of summer’s most unexpected internet friendships, U.S. gymnastics team member Simone Biles and Kim Kardashian West have been chatting online and striking up quite the rapport. And we’ve got to say, it’s pretty adorable.

Kardashian has been vocal about her love of women’s gymnastics during this year’s Olympics, and she commented on Twitter that her 3-year-old daughter North — who just started gymnastics — has been trying to copy Biles’ moves.

Biles responded immediately with the following shout out (because even the Olympics can’t keep a teen away from her phone):

Looks like this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

There’s even a video on the NBC Olympics Twitter account of Kardashian showing her support for Biles.

A new (incredibly famous) fan is only the icing on the cake for Biles this week. At just 19-years-old, she’s performing like a #BOSS in the summer games, and we’re predicting it’s only a matter of time before she’s a mega-star in her own right.

Now the only question on our minds is: when will Simone and North meet in person? Oh, and um, can we come, too?
