After more than three months of dodging pregnancy rumors, Khloé Kardashian finally confirmed the happy news that she’s expecting baby No. 1 with Tristan Thompson on Dec. 20. Luckily she has plenty of friends and family that are moms and can help her along the way, and that includes her long-distance bestie Cheryl Cole.

Cheryl quickly commented on Khloé’s baby bump Instagram writing “Khloeeee!!! Such amazing news. I could not be happier for you. You gorgeous soul! You are about to have the best, most precious time of your life. And you truly deserve it. Congratulations Mommy! Wishing you a happy healthy pregnancy and what a wonderful way to start the new year!” Khloé quickly followed up with her pal, responding “you’re the sweetest babe! Missing you! Thanks for the love always!”

Fans were loving seeing this adorable mommy duo gushing about each other, but they couldn’t help but wonder how the heck they even know each other! Khloé was born and raised in SoCal after all, while Cheryl has spent her whole life in England. Plus, Cheryl is a musician while Khloé is a reality star. So how did these two meet and get so close?! Luckily, we found the answer.

It turns out that Cheryl attended a Kanye West concert in 2013, where she ran into Khloé and her sis Kim Kardashian. Cheryl and Kim then snapped a bunch of selfies, and Khloé tweeted “‘I found a soul sister in @CherylCole tonight #Yeezus.” And the rest, as they say, was history. Yes, it really was that easy!

Khloé has been a loyal friend to Cheryl ever since, even sending her a massive $5k Harrods gift hamper to congratulate her on the birth of son Bear with One Direction’s Liam Payne, according to Closer Weekly. We can’t wait to see what Cheryl sends Khloé!
