Ellen DeGeneres has blessed us with her talent, wit, and humor for decades. But just the other day, she blessed us with something new.
It all started when U.S. Open winner Naomi Osaka appeared on The Ellen Show, where she happened to divulge a key bit of information.
Yup. Naomi, like basically all of us who are alive and attracted to men, has a bit of a crush on actor Michael B. Jordan.
Never one to forget the small things, in celebration of Osaka’s 21st birthday this past Wednesday, DeGeneres tweeted:

To which an embarrassed Osaka responded:
pls block me
— NaomiOsaka大坂なおみ (@Naomi_Osaka_) October 16, 2018
But then, Michael B. Jordan upped the thirst post game with this tweet:
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 pic.twitter.com/TS8vmSsRdM
— Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan) October 17, 2018
Osaka couldn’t believe what was happening.
LOL what is going on ??? Thanks for the bday wishes, If you’re serious I would totally want to go

Ellen was proud of her matchmaking skills.
You’re welcome, Naomi.

Many were just grateful that the pair coaxed a shirtless selfie out of Jordan.
