Thanks to one of the most amazing Twitter exchanges to ever grace the social media platform, Aly Raisman is officially BFFs with Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, and, of course, baby Luna.

The gold-medal gymnast got ready for Sunday's 2016 MTV Video Music Awards with the fan-favorite family and even got in a little play time with Luna. Now, we're jealous of her famous friends and her Olympic medals.

In a video Teigen posted to Snapchat, Raisman is seen propping up Luna with her hands and giving her hugs at the family's hotel in N.Y.C. The clip's caption reads, "IT'S HAPPENING!!"—a reference to Raisman's wish of meeting baby Luna (and teaching her a thing or two about gymnastics).

Although Teigen and Legend didn't make it to the awards show, they took a family photo with Raisman after she got glammed up and ready for the white carpet at the VMAs.

Raisman later tweeted a photo of herself and her brother, Brett, prepping for the big night, with Luna on Aly's lap and Legend helping her younger brother tie his tie. Too cute!

To get the ball rolling on this beautiful new friendship, a few days ago, the Sports Illustrated model, as per usual, took to Twitter: "@Aly_Raisman I don't want to seem forward but I feel like we would be friends please? We love you!"

Raisman (obviously) replied with a positive answer. "OMG YES. I love u and ur husband," she tweeted back. "Can we please be best friends & can I send ur daughter some of my leotards?"

Teigen, in true self-deprecating fashion responded: "There is no way that between john and I she has any coordination whatsoever but YES!" Clearly, they made good on their promise to be friends and we love it.
