As Khloe Kardashian turns 31, Cheryl opens up about their strong connection

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is always full of love for her gal pals and she’s posted THE cutest message honouring one of her particularly famous friends.

The singer shared an emotional Instagram post yesterday to celebrate her pal Khloé Kardashian’s 31st birthday and opened up about how she feels their bond was almost meant to be.

‘Sometimes in life you come across people you just connect with,’ Chezza, 31, captioned a pouty photo of Khloé. ‘that was exactly how I felt when I met Khloe..

‘I felt like I knew her already. She has such a big heart and very special soul.. ✨ I recently realised she is a cancer sign. Same day as my Dad and 3 days before me. I then understood why I get her on so many levels.’

Ooh, spooky! Cheryl – who celebrates her own birthday this week – completed her greeting by sending Khloé lots of love for the year ahead.

‘Happy Birthday Khloe.. You are a special human being and I wish you nothing but love & happiness on your special day,’ the X Factor judge wrote.

‘And hope it continues throughout the year. You deserve nothing less’

Cute! Cheryl and Khloé became mates when they hung out at a Kanye West concert along with Kim Kardashian back in October 2013 and it was clear that they instantly got on.

Khloé Tweeted at the time: ‘I found a soul sister in @CherylCole tonight ♥ #Yeezus’

The two continued to exchange messages over time, with Chezza choosing Khlo as her ‘woman crush Wednesday’ on Instagram last January. Khloé returned the favour a month later and called her British pal’s beauty ‘more than skin deep’. Er, love-in, much?

Cheryl hasn’t been neglecting her other famous besties though. The singer reunited with her Girls Aloud bandmates and BFFs Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts on Friday night and had lots of fun.

‘Had such a lovely evening last night with the girls .. my withdrawal symptoms are now healed ☺️ (for a while) ❤️,’ she posted yesterday.

‘I loved my @millybymichelle two piece too #girlsjustwannahavefun’

Can we be your friend too please Chezza?

Happy Birthday Khloe Kardashian! See how her body has changed over time!
