It was a no question for the dedicated Blue Bloods fans as CBS turned to Twitter to see which of the network’s famous friend-groups were the fan favorites.

Celebrating National Best Freinds Day, the CBS Twitter account posted “Happy #NationalBestFriendDay to these CBS BFFS,” earlier today. The Tweet then asked fans “Who’s your favorite pair?” 

“Partners for Life,” declared the Tweet accompanying a photo of Detective Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and his partner Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez).

Blue Bloods Partners Danny and Maria Have an Unbreakable Bond

Fans of the show know that Danny and Maria have an unbreakable bond. The two knew each other long before Maria joined Danny on the job. Midway through season three of the hit CBS series, Marisa joined the Blue Bloods cast.  The actress has always said that along with their characters, she and Wahlberg have developed a close friendship over the years. 

“He was so welcoming,” Ramirez told Pop Culture in a recent interview.  

“We just love each other,” Ramirez continued in the interview. “I’m so excited to be at work with him.” 

The relationship between these two partners has long been one that can withstand many trials and tribulations.  Since Ramirez joined the Blue Bloods cast, a “will they” or “won’t they” relationship between Reagan and Baez. The romantic tension has been building between the partners since Danny’s wife, Linda, died in a helicopter crash during the hit show’s eighth season.

Among Danny and Maria’s shout-out to their friendship on this National Best Friends Day, are other famous CBS duos.
