Naomi, who beat Serena Williams to win the women’s singles title at this year’s US Open, had revealed on Ellen’s NBC show in September that the actor was her celebrity crush.
‘I don’t know his name but he was in Black Panther, he was the villain,’ She told Ellen while blushing.
‘Michael B Jordan, yes!’ Degeneres asked, ‘Do you want me to text him right now?’
Staying shy, Naomi shook her head and said ‘No!’
Jordan who caught wind of Ellen’s tweet took it further as sent an updated photo of himself as he also wished the tennis player a happy birthday.
