It is the friendship we never knew we needed in our lives until now. Disney Channel star Milo Manheim and social media influencer Alexis Ren are both competing on Season 27 of Dancing With the Stars. While, yes, the whole show is a competition – that doesn’t mean the teams are total rivals. In fact, Milo and Alexis are proof that there’s nothing but love in this competition. And a little backstage moment they had this past week proves that the love they have for one another is as real as it gets. True besties, right here.

It all started when the 17-year-old Zombies actor and his partner Witney Carson were getting interviewed about the previous peformance they did on the ballroom dance floor. Suddenly, the 21-year-old social media star strolled by with her 24-year-old dance partner, Alan Bersten – and the most genuine group hug we ever did see ensued.

“I’m so proud of you humans. I love you,” Alexis said to Milo and his 24-year-old dance pro partner Witney.

“This is a family right here,” Milo chimed in. “Please vote for all of us.”
