Kristin Davis was so active in her support for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that her daughter thought they were besties!

The Sex and the City star tells PEOPLE Now that daughter Gemma Rose Davis, 5, “basically thinks that Hillary is my friend because we have so many pictures of Hillary around.”

Davis, 51, regularly campaigned for Clinton throughout the election year, and documented much of her efforts on social media. Clinton’s loss to President-elect Donald Trump ultimately became an opportunity for the star to explain how to handle disappointment to Gemma, she says.

“I had to tell her that we didn’t win and you don’t always get what you want and that it doesn’t mean that things won’t be great,” she says. “And that we’ll still be active and fight for the things we believe in.”

She adds, “It was a good conversation to have about how sometimes you lose and it’s about how do you lose and that you don’t let it get you down, that you keep going.”
