Justin Bieber may hang with the likes of Diplo, Skrillex, and Selena Gomez, but after tonight's 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards, pop's golden boy is walking away with more than just the award for Male Artist of the Year. This year, the Biebs is heading off a new best friend forever: Meghan Trainor's dad.

You see, Meghan brought her dad Gary Trainor along with her to the ceremony this evening as her date, where the two were serendipitously seated at Justin's table. There, the controversial Canadian mega star met the "No" singer's dad, who not once, but twice (as far as was televised, anyway) excitedly embraced the Biebs on his way to the stage.

That's true friendship, people.

The first took place as Justin was making his way 'round the table to join Diplo onstage in order to accept the award for Dance Song of the Year. On his way up, the singer stopped to hug Meghan, as well as her dad. (Very respectful, Biebs!)

But Gary — a.k.a. Justin Bieber's someday best man and godfather to his future children — was not finished, going in for a second embrace as the singer later left the table once more to accept his Male Artist of the Year Award. And sure, it was a little awkward, seeing as the artist didn't exactly stop the second time, but hey, awkwardness is what the best friendships are built upon.

In any event, we predict this will be a lasting friendship for the ages, so move over, Taylor and Selena. Outta the way, Demi and Iggy! There's a new pair of besties in the pop industry, and their names are Justin and Gary, a.k.a. Meghan Trainor's dad.
