It was a meeting 12 years in the making.

Steve Carrell finally got to hang out with Kelly Clarkson, whom he gave a literal shoutout to in the 2005 comedy 40-Year-Old Virgin, during the film's infamous chest-waxing scene. 

Even though Clarkson has always wanted to meet the actor, the pair never had the chance -- until Sunday night's Golden Globes!

More than a decade after screaming "AhhhKellyClarkson!!!," Carrell, 55, posted a side-by-side pic of the pair during the awards show, captioned, "Finally." 

The "Love So Soft" singer was just as stoked -- maybe even more so! She adorably -- and very quickly -- responded, "One of my favorite moments of my life! I love you and your lovely wife! #ahhhhhhhstevecarell."

Just a couple of months ago, Clarkson admitted on Sunday TODAY that she felt "gypped" that she hadn't met Carrell yet. "I have yet to meet Steve Carrell, and I want to be like, 'So, was it a compliment?' I don't know, you're in pain, and you think of Kelly Clarkson," she said last November, adding that she's a huge fan of the actor. "It was pretty hilarious."

Not only did the 35-year-old songstress finally come face-to-face with Carrell, she also fangirled over Meryl Streep, nearly fainting when the iconic actress touched her face on the red carpet.

Clarkson met her idol after yelling down the carpet in Streep's general direction, "Can I meet you? I'm such a fan!"

"I don't know if you noticed, if you watched the Golden Globes tonight, but this cheek has been caressed by Meryl Streep," the mom of two recalled in her new video series, "Minute Glass of Wine."

"That's right. It's fine. It's not a big deal," she jokingly added. "I'm not even sure she knew who I was!"

Basically, Clarkson had the best night ever.
