This National Siblings Day, we’re paying tribute to one of the most famous sisterhoods.

Amber Tamblyn confirmed this week on VH1’s Morning Buzz Live that she and her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars are each the godmothers of Blake Lively’s daughter James.

Yep, Tibby, Lena and Carmen (a.k.a Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and America Ferrera) are the chosen ones, just like Tamblyn implied in an interview with PEOPLE. Our question: Are they going to invest in a little pair of jeans for James? (We know, we know, the pants are supposed to be magical and fit everyone, but real fans will recall they were way too big for 12-year-old Bailey.)

In spite of how exciting this is, the news broke extremely nonchalantly.

“You’re still very close with your…co-stars and the three of you are godmothers to Blake Lively’s baby — is that a fact?”  Nick Lachey  asked Tamblyn during the  Morning Buzz Live interview.

“Yes, that is a fact,” she answered.

Cue cheers from the audience.

 Tell us: Does your baby have godparents? How did you choose them?
