As if you weren't emotional enough, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris took to Twitter Saturday morning—shortly after the announcement that she and Joe Biden had won the 2020 election—to share a video of her speaking with President-Elect Biden.

"We did it Joe," Harris says in the sweet and poignant clip. "You're going to be the next President of the United States," she adds before bursting into laughs of excitement and relief.

While Harris didn't add context to the video, based on her athleisure wardrobe it looks like the VP-to-be was out on a run in the park when hearing of the news. Could she BE any more cool and relatable?

Harris of course makes history as the first female, first Black, and first South Asian vice president. Thousands of people took to Twitter  (opens in new tab)to celebrate the historic moment: "She will become the highest-ranking woman ever to serve in government. The future is bright, indeed," Billie Jean King penned on social media.

"Mommy taught us we could be and do anything. She would be beyond proud today," Harris's sister Maya wrote on Twitter, alongside a photo of their mother who passed away in 2009.

Moments after it was confirmed that Biden and Harris had won the election, Harris also took to social media to share a hopeful message about uniting the country. "This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started," she wrote.
