Adame realized that the manicurist next to her was meeting her son's new girlfriend for the first time, while she did the girlfriend's nails. On top of that, the boyfriend was feeding his new girlfriend chicken nuggets while she was getting her manicure from his mom. Adame told BuzzFeed News she was impressed by the gesture and took a photo.

"It was so cute...he was a keeper," Adame recalled her initial thoughts of the couple. "What guy will go to a nail salon with a girl, let alone will feed her food while there?"She noted that he was feeding her chicken nuggets "periodically" during her entire manicure.

The receptionist at the Orange County salon confirmed the encounter.

She told BuzzFeed News the manicurist's name is Molly, and that she was indeed meeting her son's girlfriend for the first time.

She laughed when she heard they've become somewhat lauded and known on social media. She said Molly is currently busy, but that she will make sure she and her son know about their new fame.

BuzzFeed News will update the post if we hear back from Molly and her son.

Here are Adame and Yip's completed manicures 💅

UPDATE: The couple, 23-year-old Aubrey Yip and 25-year-old Sam Huynh, has been identified. And they think their moment of viral fame has been "absolutely fun," Yip told BuzzFeed News.

Yip and Huynh have been dating for two months now and had actually surprised Huynh's mom Molly at the salon that day. Yip had also been prepping for a powerlifting competition — which is why Huynh was feeding her nuggets."It was super exciting because Aubrey needed her nails done for her competition and it was the perfect chance to meet my mom and surprise her with news and some flowers," Huynh explained to BuzzFeed News. "We never thought our little gesture for his mom would get seen or publicized. We feel very lucky that Adame captured such a cute and candid moment for us," Yip added.
