Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are celebrating their historic win today, which saw Harris becoming the first ever woman elected as Vice President of the United States.

After receiving the incredible news, Harris appears to have immediately called the president-elect, and the VP shared footage of their phone call on Twitter.

In the clip, Harris says, "We did it. We did it, Joe. You're going to be the next President of the United States." While we can't hear Biden's side of the conversation, he's sure to be as elated with the news as Harris is.

Biden's win was announced four days after the election, on account of the voluminous numbers of voters opting for mail-in ballots this year. Patience prevailed, with Biden and Harris securing victory after the electoral college vote jumped to 284, thanks to a major boost in Pennsylvania.

Biden urged patience throughout the process. "It is the will of the voters, no one else, that chooses the president of the United States of America," Biden said on Wednesday, according to PBS. "I ask all people to stay calm, the process is working, the count is being completed and we’ll know very soon."

Along with sharing her phone call to Biden, Harris celebrated the victory by tweeting, "This election is about so much more than @JoeBiden or me. It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started."
