It's finally happening...Gwyneth Paltrow is going to be on Hello Ross!

Back before Hello Ross premiered, Ross Mathews told us that he was sure Gwyneth would be a guest. "I don't know if it'll be in the first few episodes, but I know we'll get her on the show," Ross told us. "And it will be epic when she is!"

We're about to see just how epic it will be: Gwyneth will be the special guest on Hello Ross on Friday, October 11.

Ross could say with certainty that Gwyneth would join thanks to the fact that they're pretty much BFFs. Both Ross and Gwyneth tell the story the same way: Ross was covering a red carpet event that Gwyneth attended, and when the two chatted, Ross asked outright if she would be his best friend.

"People think I'm crazy for asking," Ross said in an interview with E!'s Marc Malkin. "I think she's the crazy one for saying yes."

But it was a no-brainer for Gwyneth. "He's such a sweetheart," she told Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. "I'm so happy he has his own show."

Plus, how could she ever regret getting annual lesbian birthday cards?

Don't miss Gwyneth Paltrow on Hello Ross tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 11) at 10/9c, only on E!
