  • Selena Gomez said Fred Armisen sent her flowers upon learning she named her new kidney after him.

  • "I named it after Fred Armisen because I love "Portlandia," Gomez told Rolling Stone last month.

  • While the pair has never met, Gomez said she has heard that Armisen is "awesome."

Fred Armisen sent Selena Gomez flowers after he learned that the "Only Murders in the Building" star named her new kidney after him.

"I know you named your kidney," Jimmy Fallon said to Gomez on Monday's episode of "The Tonight Show." "You named it after someone we know."

"I named my new kidney 'Fred,'" Gomez told Rolling Stone in November. "I named it after Fred Armisen because I love 'Portlandia.' I've never met him, but I'm secretly hoping he finds that out just because I want him to be like, 'That's weird.'"

Gomez said that as a way of "coping" with her kidney transplant, which she got in 2017 due to her Lupus, she named it — and she decided to name it after Armisen.

She repeated to Fallon that she chose the name because of her love for "Portlandia" and "I love everything he does."

While the pair have never met, Gomez said Armisen heard about her kidney's name and sent her flowers after the operation.

"I heard he's awesome," Gomez told Fallon, who suggested they meet.
