Great news, mes amies

It's no secret that Emily in Paris' Emily and Mindy are one of TV's cutest and funniest friend duos. But in an interview with Glamour UK, Lily Collins (Emily) and Ashley Park (Mindy) revealed that they they're not just on-screen besties who order croissants with a side of condoms—they're BFFs in real life too. 

"It's such an amazing experience to meet someone as an adult, when you're an adult, and gravitate towards them so strongly," Lily said about Ashley. "Like a friendship soulmate."

"Ashley makes me not question and doubt who I am now," she continued. Okay, we're officially crying.

Ashley shared that when they had days off, the pair would explore Paris together. "Me and Lily, if we ever had a day off, we'd wander the streets together," Ashley said in the interview. "We were sitting in the Tuileries Gardens, just catching up on everything – and we had masks and sunglasses on – and we just kept on getting recognized!"

TV Shows to Binge Watch After Emily in Paris

Ashley continued, "Even what we thought the demographic of our show was. We were so happy that they were so enthusiastic about it, but also just middle-aged men came up and were like, ‘Oh, it's you guys.' Not a single person came up to us with a negative response."

And not only does Lily appreciate friendships in her personal life, her on-screen counterpart, Emily, does as well. "Emily ultimately really values her friendships, she explained. "And [in] season two, she really leans into the female friendships, which is something that I really was excited about pursuing more of."
