Nothing’s better than having a close friend you’ve known forever, as those of us still holding on to a pre-K friend can attest. Neither of you can remember how or when you became friends (though your parents probably have a funny story about it), but one day, you’re inseparable. (And 20 years later, they can still embarrass you more than anyone you know.) For celebrity kids, we imagine having these kinds of lifelong friendships are even more important, since living in the spotlight must be overwhelming. That’s why we’re so in love with seeing celebrities’ kids form close friendships — including some BFFs you never would have guessed.

We all know that Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s kids are close, but did you know about Gwen Stefani’s son Kingston and Angelina Jolie’s daughter Shiloh? Or David Beckham’s daughter Harper and Kate Middleton’s son Prince George? These celebrity kids are going on playdates, attending birthday parties, and putting on elaborate imaginary plays for their parents to watch (or so we imagine). 20 years later, these kids will understand each other better than anyone, and it warms our hearts to see it.
