Mikayla Stern-Ellis and Emily Nappi met when they began college at Tulane University. They were looking for roommates online and quickly found that they eerily had a lot in common.

They both had big curly hair, loved theater, wore similar clothes (sometimes even the exact same items), and moved to New Orleans after being raised in California. Then one day, Mikayla posted something online about her biological father — a Colombia sperm donor. Emily was stunned.

“When she posted that status, I thought that’s too much of a coincidence,” Emily told the TODAY‘s Matt Lauer. After comparing photos of the two girls and noticing their striking similarities, Mikayla’s mom made a suggestion, the girls should compare sperm donor ID numbers.

If they were the same, then they would be sisters. They did and as it turns out, the friends are half-sisters. The two are ecstatic to have found each other, it seems that their life choices led them right to one another!

“I already tell her I love her and it’s been two weeks,” Emily said. If you’ve ever thought you and your best friend were so close you could be sisters, well, hey, you never know.

Please SHARE if you think the odds of these two finding each other is unbelievable!
