"Once in a while I like to check in, & see what’s happening With Chip, Joanna & Kids," Cher tweeted along with a smiling emoji surrounded by hearts.
And wouldn't you know it, Chip replied to Cher's tweet, giving the "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" star a hilarious Gaines family update.
"Well Auntie Cher," he wrote, "Kids are doing great! A little cold going around, but you know how it is. Send everyone our love! — the Gaines clan."
The two singers came face to face on the red carpet at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C., where Clarkson morphed into the ultimate fangirl.
"Hi, I'm Kelly Clarkson! Nice to meet you!" the "Voice" coach said before embracing Cher.
"I have never met you," she continued. "I've been talking about you (to the press) the whole time and going, 'She's right behind me!'"
Naturally, Clarkson couldn't believe her luck and later tweeted a photo of the pair together.
"I met Cher!!!" she gushed. "My life is better than everyone else’s today."
