Sweetest Dancing With the Stars friendship ever?

Zendaya recently celebrated an important milestone in her life, and she had her former DWTS partner Val Chmerkovskiy right there in the audience for support. The 18-year-old Disney star just graduated high school, and Val couldn't be prouder.

"From the Met straight to set to graduating high school. Proud of my lil Zendayachka. #driven #fam @zendaya," the 29-year-old dancer Instagrammed on Friday.

Zendaya and Val were partners during season 16 of DWTS, finishing as runner-ups to country star Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough. Despite their busy schedules, the two have still managed to remain close. The Shake It Up star showed her love for Val in March, wishing him a happy birthday with this cute pic of the two on the red carpet.

"I'm not gonna write 3 pages and get all sappy cause I would look like a dork but just know I love you...happy birthday to my ace🙏 @iamvalc #famovererrrrthang," she wrote.
