Growing up, Kim Kardashian wasn’t just hanging out with sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. The reality star had a few famous friends even before high school.

In an epic Instagram photo posted yesterday, Kim highlighted her childhood friendship with Nicole Richie. The new mom posted a photo of herself at age 13 alongside Nicole in what appears to be a photobooth at the mall. The girls look fresh-faced and adorable especially Nicole with her mouthful of braces.

“ThrowbackThursday @nicolerichie and I being oh so cool at 13 years old,” Kim captioned the photo.

“Brace yourselves!” Nicole responded.

While the ladies’ lives have gone in different directions, the old friends have more in common than ever these days. Much like Kim will soon be, Nicole is married to a musician. The reality star has two kids, daughter Harlow, 5, and son Sparrow, 4, with former Good Charlotte lead singer, Joel Madden. Now that Kim has a daughter of her own, the two ladies might just be able to bond over parenting tips and stories of working mothers.

Kim has been placing a premium on her female friendships these days. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was spotted going out for lunch with socialite gal pal Brittny Gastineau in Los Angeles on January 6. Last week, the reality star paused for a selfie before heading to the gym with new friend Blac Chyna.
