Friendship is “The Sweetest Thing.”

Selma Blair wants her pal Christina Applegate to know she’s there for her following Applegate’s multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

“Loving you always,” Blair, 49, tweeted to Applegate on Wednesday. “Always here. As are our kids. Beating us up with love.”

“I love our two weirdos,” Applegate, also 49, responded. “They are so fun.”

The pair’s children are the same age. Applegate is mom to daughter Sadie Grace LeNoble — who turned 10 on January 27 — with musician Martyn LeNoble. Blair welcomed son Arthur Saint Bleick with her now-ex, fashion designer Jason Bleick, on July 25, 2011.

Applegate revealed her MS diagnosis Tuesday, saying she received the news “a few months ago.”

“It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some a–hole blocks it,” she wrote.

It’s the latest in a string of health trials for “Bad Moms” star Applegate, who underwent a double mastectomy in 2008 as part of her breast-cancer battle and had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in 2017 to avoid ovarian cancer. She said in 2019 that she wrote a double mastectomy into her “Dead Like Me” character Jen’s story because “it hasn’t really been discussed on shows before; I don’t think there’s a lot of characters out there with double mastectomies.”

Blair revealed in 2018 that she had been diagnosed with MS. The actress has been open about battling the autoimmune disease since, telling fans she felt “sick as hell” in 2019 but vowing, “I am going to get through this. We do. This will pass.”
