Some mega-adorable pictures of a set of grandparents wearing matching outfits were posted to Twitter last night, and we honestly can’t get enough.

“I never expected a tweet of my grandparents to go viral,” Anthony Garguila,17, told CNN.

Fran and Ed Garguila, Anthony’s grandparents, have been married for a whopping 52 years, and they have become known for their coordinated outfits.

“It’s amazing,” Anthony said.

So… they’ve been matching for 52 YEARS?

Well, not exactly.

But, enough to win the ‘Most Endearing Couple of the Year’ award.

The Garguilas started square dancing several years ago and decided to wear matching outfits when they danced.

And, it just became… a thing.

Especially after they showed up to one of Anthony’s singing performances last year in Florida – sporting bright orange shirts.

Not only were THEY matching, but they brought their whole square dancing crew along wearing bright orange.

Anthony loved it.

“Everybody looks forward to what they’re going to wear,” Rich Garguila, the couple’s son, told CNN.

That includes Anthony, who gets an exclusive preview every morning.

“I wake up to text messages, saying ‘Good morning! We hope you have a good day!’ – along with the ‘outfit of the day.'”

His personal favorite is the “bumble bee outfit” – the one where the Garguilas wore opposing yellow and black pants and shirts.

“It’s the cutest thing ever,” he said.

It’s also indicative of the kind of people they are in general.

Anthony said “they are the best. My grandfather is 75 years old and texts me every morning.”

“They personify being grandparents and being a couple,” Rich told CNN.

Tuesday morning, after Anthony’s tweet blew up overnight, he texted his grandparents: “You’re an internet sensation.”

“Directly after that, they sent me their morning photo,” he said.

The text read “Good morning from your famous grandparents.”
