This is really 2 cute.

Jennette McCurdy, best known for playing Sam on Nickelodeon's iCarly and the spin-off Sam & Cat, appears to have found romance online!

After months of being the subject of Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond's Women Crush Wednesday (#WCW) posts on Statigram, McCurdy started following him on Twitter.

She then reached out on Aug. 7, tweeting, "@DRE_DRUMMOND_ I wanna watch you play!" to which he replied, "@jennettemccurdy ill let you know when I play in LA!"

Well, they must have realized pretty quickly that neither wanted to wait that long to meet, considering the 2013-14 NBA season doesn't kick off until late October.

As chronicled by the Detroit Free Press, which first noticed the attention being paid by Drummond to McCurdy, the 20-year-old athlete started sending the 21-year-old actress gifts, such as flowers and a teddy bear, which she then proudly showed off via social media over the past month.

McCurdy also showed off a pic of Drummond for #ManCrushMonday last week.

And after a few weeks of this, they finally met up in person on her home court, as evidenced by various tweets and cozy pictures posted online throughout Labor Day weekend.

"With @DRE_DRUMMOND_ ahhhh!!!" McCurdy tweeted on Thursday. 

"Words can't explain...Add your own caption," Drummond then wrote on Friday along with a pic of him giving her a piggyback ride—which, yes, was an easy feat considering he's 6-foot-10 and her IMDb-listed height is 5-foot-2. 

According to Twitter (we're loving this transparency), the weekend also included laser tag, a trip to Disneyland and McCurdy happily going to bed wearing a hat that Drummond gave her.

"Beverly Hillsing it with @andredrummond0,"she wrote alongside another cute selfie-for-two that was posted just yesterday.

If somehow this is not a romantic relationship, then it's at least the beginning of a positively adorable friendship.
