By Jennifer Drysdale
We're saying it now and we'll say it again: Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe are total couple goals.
ET's Keltie Knight caught up with the adorable twosome on the red carpet at the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where they melted our hearts with the story of how they met.
"We were in the same dorm freshman year...that's kind of how we met," Bathe described, adding that her first memory of Brown was of him auditioning for Joe Turner's Come and Gone at Stanford University. "I was mesmerized."
"You were 18 years old, and the things that this man could do at 18," she continued. "Everybody's like, 'Oh, Sterling is amazing. He's amazing.' And I'm like, 'He hasn't even scratched the surface.' At 18 years old, he got on the stage, and wasn't even off book, and was Joe Turner. He was 18!"
Brown, meanwhile, gushed about getting to know Bathe on the way to rehearsal, explaining that their friendship quickly grew into something more.
"She got cast in the play as well, and we would ride bikes to rehearsal, and we would just talk. We found out that we were both from St. Louis. We didn't know that we were both from St. Louis, like, our parents went to rival high schools. We were born in the same hospital. Like, we were friends," he said of his college sweetheart. "She was dating somebody. Of course she was, she's gorgeous. So we were just buddies."
"We were homies before everything else, and then it grew," he sweetly shared.
Brown is nominated both for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series as well as Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his role in This Is Us. See more on the actor in the video below.
