How Did Selena Gomez & Francia Raisa First Meet?

How Did Selena Gomez & Francia Raisa First Meet?

Francia Raisa and Selena Gomez made headlines this morning when Selena revealed that Francia had donated a kidney to her — friendship goals at its’ finest.

Now, everyone is wondering just who Francia is!

While we all here at JJJ know her instantly from The Secret Life of the American Teenager, you might have also seen Francia in some ABC Family movies (Freeform’s original name) like A Snow Globe Christmas, The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream or even Bring It On: All or Nothing.

However, the question on everyone’s mind is just how long have Selena and she been besties. Answer: over 10 years!

Back in 2013, Francia told Latina mag that she met Selena at a hospital benefit.

“Six years ago Disney and ABC Family had the stars of their shows go to the Children’s Hospital. Selena and I were in the same group and we just clicked,” she shared.

The Weeknd was reportedly right by Selena Gomez‘s side when her health took a turn before her kidney transplant this summer.

According to TMZ, Selena was rushed to the hospital when she was in Chicago for her boyfriend The Weeknd‘s concert back in May. The Weeknd was reportedly by her side, and at that point, she was already on the kidney transplant list for a donor.

Selena‘s BFF Francia Raisa donated a kidney to her.

We’re so glad Selena appears to be doing better.
