Alongside her multiple Olympic gold medal wins, this was likely one of the highlights of Simone Biles‘s life!
The 19-year-old gymnast was able to meet her all-time celebrity crush Zac Efron this week, and it was as utterly adorable, as one would expect.
Biles and Efron have been exchanging messages back and forth on Twitter during the course of the Olympics, and The Today Show facilitated a surprise meetup between the two in Rio yesterday.
“If you bring him out, I think I’m gonna pass out!” Biles told Hoda Kotb prior to Efron’s big entrance.
The Neighbors star then appeared, and even greeted the All-Around gold medal champion with a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
“Ahh, oh my God! Stop, is this real life? Oh my God. Stop,” Biles gushed.
Efron, who also met the rest of the Final Five on Today, says that Biles and her teammates weren’t the only one experiencing nerves about their meeting!
“I totally have butterflies right now,” he admitted. “I’m getting kind of emotional.”
“They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn’t know what to think,” he later added. “I kind of was getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet.”
“Their story just blew my mind,” Efron continued. “When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, ‘What kind of guy am I if I don’t show up?'”
