It’s fair to say Simone Biles can officially mark this week as her best week ever!
Not only has the 19-year-old swept four Olympic gold medals from Rio (the first U.S. gymnast to do so since 1984). But now she’s also swept the heart of her celebrity crush too.
Hollywood heart-throb Zac Efron surprised Simone and the girls from the #FinalFive in an unexpected meeting and shared a little more than his admiration for the pint-size talent.

Biles took to Twitter to let us all know the High School Musical actor congratulated her with a celebratory kiss — on the cheek of course!
“He kissed me on the cheek. Just letting ya’ll know,” she tweeted along with the several pictures of the two cuddled up close.
A short clip of the kiss was posted to Twitter. Like a true star struck fan, when it all went down, Simone just melted. “Just call me Mrs. Efron already,” she tweeted.
proof : had to do a retake bc I thought we were taking a picture then he kissed me instead ❤️ pic.twitter.com/rld33V14qe— Simone Biles (@Simone_Biles) August 16, 2016
Efron caught wind of his secret crush after Biles appeared on The Ellen Show and swooned over the 28-year-old actor.
People reports that the Today show host, Hoda Kotb was the mastermind behind the meet-up.
The whole encounter is supposed to air Wednesday morning on the shows.
Yet another magical dream come true at the Olympics.
