If you missed National Best Friend Day on Tuesday, June 8th, you weren’t alone — some of daytime drama’s leading ladies also forgot to mark their calendars. So when Y&R‘s Michelle Stafford and GH‘s Finola Hughes played catch-up by sending tributes to their BFFs, it turned out they were celebrating each other!

Stafford kicked off the love-fest by professing her admiration for Hughes on Instagram

“I LOOOOVE this gal!! The greatest friend to ALL,” Stafford gushed about her former General Hospital cast-mate. “So supportive of everyone and laughs at all of my jokes. That is the kind of pal to have.”

The Young and the Restless star also had an anecdote to share about their friendship, captured in a second photo of Stafford and Hughes holding hands at the Emmys in 2018.

“I said ‘listen, when we walk out on stage, please let’s not do something cheesy like hold hands’,” Stafford reminisced. “Of course, I walk out there and what’s the first thing I do? Grab her hand. That is why she will ALWAYS be cooler than me.”

“That’s why we’re laughing here. I mean she almost didn’t take it because I was so adamant about not holding hands,” she explained of the photo. “I guess when you get out there, you just turn to cheese… or, I turn to cheese.”

Yesterday, Hughes signed onto Instagram to prove that she’s willing to hold Stafford’s hand anytime!

“So I missed #nationalbestfriendday but here for the record, [Michelle Stafford] and I, holding hands,” the GH star said, sharing a different photo of the two besties, again hand in hand.

“Love ya Stafford. Love you for always knowing when to call, what to say, having my back and being an all round inspiration,” Hughes added. 

Clearly this friendship has helped both actresses remain young at heart, while also reaching the heights of soaps stardom. The heartfelt gratitude we’re feeling here is proof positive that it’s never too late to celebrate your best friend!
