Olympic Gymnast Simone Biles Finally Gets a Kiss from Her Longtime Crush Zac Efron
This definitely made our day.
After Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and Zac Efron exchanged a friendly round of Tweets last week, they finally met in person today—and the face-to-face didn't come without a few smooches. Biles took to Instagram to document the event, first sharing a video of herself kissing the actor on the cheek. "On cloud 9 @zacefron," she wrote alongside the cute clip.
Shortly after, she posted a photo that shows Efron returning the favor and giving her a kiss on the cheek while she snaps a selfie. She simply the captioned the image with a kissing smiley face emoji.
And the smooch is rather fitting, considering Biles recently admitted her major crush on the High School Musical cast member. Before heading off to the the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, the 19-year-old invited NBC into her Texas family home where she revealed the life-size cardboard cutout of Efron that she keeps in her bedroom alongside a multitude of trophies and medals. When the reporter asked about the actor's likeness in her room, the 4-foot-8 gymnast giggled and said that she used to kiss the cutout on the cheek.
The actor himself then 'grammed an image of him and Biles together, which he captioned: "Surprise!! #Rio2016 #FinalFive"
Such a heart-melting moment.
