While tapping through your Instagram Stories, you may have wondered: Did Jennifer Aniston and Selena Gomez become best friends? Yup!

The two share the same manager, Aleen Keshishian, who celebrated her 53rd birthday on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Aniston, 51, posted a photo of the three hanging out together on her feed, writing, "Happy birthday @aleenkeshishian [two red heart emojis] We love you." Gomez, 28, reposted her tribute, and Keshishian reposted the latter star's regram, writing, "Wish we could celebrate in person @jenniferaniston @selenagomez [red heart emoji] u both so much!"

Several years ago, Aniston and Gomez met through Keshishian and then struck up a friendship. In December 2014, Gomez shared on Instagram a photo of herself with Aniston and promoted the latter star's film Cake. A month later, the two actresses were spotted hanging out together at a 2015 Golden Globes after-party.

"She's just like a little cherub that I feel like I wanna take care of," the Friends alum and Morning Show star told E! News days later. "She's been extremely supportive and wonderful."

In January 2020, Aniston guest-hosted The Ellen DeGeneres Show and interviewed Gomez. They recalled meeting for the first time in a restroom at a celebrity event, which the singer attended with her mother.

"I walked into the bathroom and I saw you," Gomez said. "And you were just so nice. You just walked out of the bathroom, you were going back. My heart stopped, and I freaked out, and I ran to my mom and I was like, 'Oh, my God. I just saw Jennifer Aniston!'"

Gomez said Aniston was "busy" at the time. Aniston commented, "Washing my hands, I hope."

"Yeah, you were fine," Gomez said. "You were everything that I wanted."
