Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan have one of those friendships everyone is jealous of. They make music together, they chill and even do karaoke together!
'Wonder' star, Shawn and former One Direction member, Niall, go way back to the first tie they met in 2017 and have a shared love of songwriting, playing guitar, oh, and does being superstar heartthrobs count as a hobby, too?
We're going to count it.
So, let's look through all the adorable moments they've shared together and the support they're constantly providing to one another.
Get ready to sob!
It's a true sign of friendship when you're mates with your mates' mates too, if you know what we mean.
And Niall only cemented himself as one of Shawn's besties when he commented on Camila Cabello's Instagram post of a selfie of all their friends.
"We got Brian," Niall wrote, tagging Brian Craigen and adding hands-up emoji.

Proving how close these two really are, Shawn joined Niall for a game of his second biggest love in life: golf. (His first is 1D, obviously).
On a sunny golf course, Shawn shared an Instagram Stories clip of Niall's expert swing, calling it "poor form." Ouch.
What we'd give to hear what they chatted about on the green!
My question is... WHEN NIALL AND SHAWN ARE GOING TO GET A SONG TOGETHER?! 😩💕 pic.twitter.com/1CS4c4mCDS— 🕷️Dane🕷️ (@Dane_Sarmiento) November 21, 2020
Watched my buddie @ShawnMendes doc last night. So proud of the boy. He’s smashed it and always so humble. well done to everyone involved. X— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) November 24, 2020
Niall, like the rest of us, raced to our Netflix to watch Shawn as we've never seen him before, unfiltered, in his documentary that followed him on his mammoth 2018 world tour.
The 'No Judgement' singer couldn't help but express the pride he felt watching the 22-year-old flourish on-screen and took to Twitter to tell his millions of followers:
"Watched my buddie @ShawnMendes doc last night. So proud of the boy [sic]."
"He’s smashed it and always so humble. well done to everyone involved."

Hit-makers songwriters, talented instrumentalists, performers, heartthrobs and you should trust us when we say we could go on and on about the shard talents of these two.
Fans have constantly asked the pair when they're going to get round to collab'ing together, but, unsurprisingly the pair are kind of busy making records, documentaries, planning tours, you get the gist.
However, they've certainly not ruled it out and have said one day they will write a tune together, and that glimmer of hope is all we need.
Of course, being separated by oceans doesn't help these chances right now, but we know when everything is back to normal the pair will reunite.
As breaking the internet goes, there's not a whole lot more you can do than get two of the biggest stars in the world together in one room to duet on one of their biggest tracks.
When Niall and Shawn were hanging out together backstage, they decided to pass the time by belting out 'Mercy', harmonies and all.
Fans were besides themselves seeing their two favourites sharing sofa and doing what they do best, sing their hearts out!
The 2017 AMAs was the very first time Niall and Shawn met after messaging back and forth for a while before finally meeting up at the award ceremony.
The pair, obviously, hit it off instantly as you can tell from this adorable snap of them gazing into each other's eyes.
The rest, as they say, is history.
