    This Entire Twitter Interaction Between Michael B. Jordan And Naomi Osaka Is Honestly Just TOO Good

    If I ever become famous, I know who I'm calling to play matchmaker.

    You know Naomi Osaka, right? The 21-year-old tennis champion who recently beat Serena Williams at the US Open? Well, here she is!

    After her historic win, Naomi went on The Ellen Show and revealed that Michael B. Jordan was her celebrity crush.

    Jokingly, Ellen asked her, "Do you want me to text him right now?" and said, "Seriously, I'm gonna get my phone, and I'm gonna text Michael, and I'm gonna tell him that he should meet you." Naomi was pretty shy about the whole thing, and repeatedly laughed, "No, I'm okay."

    That was last month. Cut to — this past Tuesday! (Yes, I know that was, like, basically a week ago, but I'm just finding out about this now and I'm excited, damnit!) On Oct. 16, Ellen tweeted out this Happy Birthday message to Naomi and 👀👀👀.

    Happy birthday, @Naomi_Osaka_. I got you a present. @michaelb4jordan

    And Naomi's reply has me LOL'ING!

    But, wait, it gets better...the next day, Michael chimed in. He wished Naomi a happy belated birthday and invited her to the Creed 2 premiere.

    @Naomi_Osaka_ @TheEllenShow This one is better and more recent. LOL 😂 Happy Belated Bday Naomi. But seriously I want to invite you to the Creed 2 premiere as a bday present 🎁 https://t.co/TS8vmSsRdM

    FWIW, I think Naomi played it pretty cool when she responded.

    @michaelb4jordan @TheEllenShow LOL what is going on 💀😂??? Thanks for the bday wishes, If you’re serious I would totally want to go 🤗🙏

    But, in reality, she was probably more like this:

    Which, like, relatable AF.

    After the interaction, Ellen simply tweeted, "You're welcome, Naomi."

    @michaelb4jordan @Naomi_Osaka_ You’re welcome, Naomi.

    Bottom line: Michael B. Jordan is gorgeous, Naomi Osaka is one lucky girl, and this woman is all of us.

    BTW, Ellen, my birthday is April 29.
