Family sticks together. Even fake families from television.
In a successful attempt to overwhelm us with nostalgia that we weren't even expecting on a Friday night, actress Beverley Mitchell took to Instagram to share a photograph that just took us back to the late '90s and early 2000s, all while making our heart explode with happiness.
Mitchell joined a few of her former 7th Heaven co-stars to support Jessica Biel's soft launch of her new restaurant Au Fudge in West Hollywood, Calif. The pair, along with Barry Watson, Mackenzie Rosman and Catherine Hicks, all flashed big smiles for the snapshot. Noticeably missing, of course, is Stephen Collins, David Gallagher, and twins Nikolas and Lorenzo Brino.
"So much fun supporting our girl @JessicaBiel on the launch of her amazing new restaurant @aufudge! Love these people like family," Mitchell wrote on Instagram with the photo, and added the hashtags "#nothinglikefamily #7thheavenforever #aufudge #familyfriendly."
And yes, seeing Mary, Lucy, Matt and Ruthie Camden with their mother made us burst into the theme song instantly.
Biel's latest business venture is a kid-friendly restaurant and community club called Au Fudge, which she's taken on along with business partners Estee Stanley, Monica Weinberg and Kimberly Muller, and the star told E! News back in September that motherhood definitely changed her approach on this endeavor.
"I definitely do [have a new perspective]. When we started talking about this, I didn't have kids and so when they would say to me, 'We need a place where we can go and have great food and feel confident where that food is coming from and a place where my kids have fun. This is missing.' And I'm thinking, 'Sure I guess, I'll come hang out,'" she explained.
"We're always trying to find a place where I could join them, where friends who didn't have kids could join them, and I didn't get it. I wanted them to be happy and I knew that they needed a break of course, but I didn't have any real understanding of how important it would be to find a place and create a space where a family can come and your kid can be happy doing something and you can be really happy doing something else. Or you can be experiencing it together."
Au Fudge officially opens to the public on March 4.
