Nico Tortorella and Hilary Duff are close, but it appears their friendship has been taken to another level.

On Friday, Tortorella willingly tried a cup of his Younger costar’s breast milk, which he discovered was not as bad as he initially thought. Duff, meanwhile, watched in disgust and captured the entire thing on his Instagram Stories.

“I’m for real doing this right now,” he announced to the camera before taking a sip of her breast milk.

Immediately after, Tortorella stated in surprise, “Oh my god! It is delicious!,” prompting the actress to hold up her freezer bag of breast milk to prove that he had, indeed, tried it.

Tortorella then drank whatever was left in his cup before asking Duff, “Can I have some more?”

Duff, who recently gave birth to her daughter Banks Violet, wasn’t so easily convinced, and could be heard laughing in the background, before telling him, “You’re a sicko, dude.”

The former Lizzie McGuire star, who has been open about her latest experience with motherhood, recently revealed that her 3-month-old daughter suffers from colic and asked her followers for advice.

“Calling all parents of colic babies … this ends right?” Duff captioned a selfie in which she was holding her daughter — whom she shares with Matthew Koma — dressed in a red-patterned onesie, on her shoulder.

Colic affects up to 40 percent of babies, according to the National Institutes of Health. It’s defined as any healthy baby who cries more than three hours a day for more than three days a week, for longer than three weeks.

“Can you ever set them down without them screaming OR waking up? We have read everything the internet has to offer … nothing besides nursing basically every hour or less helps!” the actress continued. “We have done all the obvious things … please leave magic tricks in comments.”

Similar to Tortorella’s adventurous taste test, Duff also revealed in November that she drank her placenta in a smoothie after giving birth and it was “delicious.”

“It was the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had,” she said. “I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was ten. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.”

Although Duff was initially hesitant to eat the placenta — “I was a little wigged out, to be honest with you,” the actress said — she explained that the theories claiming it would prevent post-partum depression and stop the post-birth bleeding were enough to convince her to try it.

This isn’t the first time that Tortorella and Duff have shown just how close they are.

In 2016, after Duff revealed that her costar prefers to be naked on set even when the cameras stop rolling, Tortorella reacted to her comments, sharing that there’s a perfectly logical reason for his absence of clothing.

“I have two full sleeves on the show, so I have to sit through hair and makeup for like, an hour every day that I get to work to get all these fake tattoos on. And so I have to have my shirt off for that,” he told PEOPLE Now. “Then they have to dry for a little bit, so it’s just easier to not keep taking clothes on and off.”

But Tortorella didn’t apologize for his wardrobe (or lack thereof).

“We all walk around naked at some point in the day, right?” he said. “I just do it more often than others.”
