Well this is a duo we never expected to see bonding on social media.

But it seems Oscar winner and Hollywood power player Reese Witherspoon has found common ground with Loose Women panellist and former X-Factor singer, Stacey Solomon.

It all started when Stacey posted an hilarious tweet about her sons asking her if they could play the online gaming phenomenon, Fortnite.

The 28-year-old told the funny story of how she decided to test the game first to make sure it would be appropriate for her children Zachary and Leighton, only to end up becoming obsessed herself.

She said:

"My eldest: can I download Fortnite?

Me: No.

My eldest: All my friends have it & play & im the ONLY one who can’t play.

Me: let me play it and see.

I’m now 2 hours in, dressed as some kind of Raven, on my way to Tilted Towers with 3 people I don’t know 🤷‍♀️�"

But then a few days later, a very famous Twitter user, none other than Reese Witherspoon retweeted Stacey's post, adding: "What is it with Fortnite ? 🤷🏼‍♀️"

Stacey was overjoyed that Reese retweeted her ©Twitter/StaceySolomon

This, of course, was met with Stacey's usual humility and sense of humour. She retweeted Reese's comment and added: "When @RWitherspoon retweets you 😬😬😭😭😭😭 I can officially retire from twitter. Life MADE"

We love Stacey for just this kind of honesty and down to earth attitude and think that if they met in real life these two would probably get on pretty well.

Not only are they both mums but they're both vocal about positive body image and the empowerment of women.
