Kamala Harris made history — or is it herstory?! — today by becoming the first Black woman and Indian American woman to be nominated for the position of Vice President on a major party ticket. Joe Biden shared the news on Twitter, writing, “I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate.” And to say that a lot of us are excited about the news that the U.S. Senator from California could be our VP in just a few short months is…well, kind of an understatement. (Honestly? We’re not even sure how to handle good news these days. But we digress.) Many celebrities — especially celebrity women — are reacting to Harris’ VP nomination with glee. Take a look!

Chrissy Teigen

The Cravings author tweeted it best, really. And are we surprised?
