If you need another reason to love "Jane the Virgin" actress Gina Rodriguez, this just might be it.

Earlier this year, high school student Jessica Casanova reached out to Rodriguez via Twitter, sharing that she would love to wear her Golden Globes dress to prom.

Much to Casanova's surprise, the actress replied a few hours later, letting her know that while she didn't own the sapphire Zac Posen gown she wore to the 2016 award show, she did have the black Badgley Mischka dress she wore the year prior, when she won the award for Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy.

Rodriguez also said she wanted to arrange for the soon-to-be high school graduate to wear it on her prom night.

Astounded, Casanova quickly let Rodriguez know that she lives in Buffalo, New York and the rest was history.

On Friday, the prom queen posted some pics of her in the dress on her Twitter page, and thanked Rodriguez for helping her to slay on her special day.

To make Casanova's night even more magical, ET online reports that the 31-year-old star shared a special video message with teenager, saying, "Just know I love you. I'm so proud of you. I'm so excited for you. You look beautiful and everybody will remember it—especially you!"

And while Casanova won't get to keep the dress, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Rodriguez wants to continue the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Dress," by gifting it to other girls to wear on their prom night.

How sweet!

But aside from being the fairy godmother of prom dresses, Rodriguez has been keeping busy with her recently launched inclusive lingerie line Naja with businesswoman Catalina Girald, which offers "nude" underwear to match a variety of skin tones.
