The cast of NBC鈥檚 This Is Us are as close off-screen as they are on. Not only do they have a Pearson family group text, but they鈥檙e also super supportive of one another鈥檚 partners and stand in solidarity with each other no matter what. Now, Milo Ventimiglia (AKA Jack Pearson) is admitting that he even supports the story lines on the show that are tough for fans to watch 鈥 namely, the relationship between his on-screen wife and best friend.

鈥淚鈥檓 all for it,鈥 he recently told Us Weekly. If you鈥檙e not familiar with the show, it depicts various timelines throughout the Pearson family鈥檚 life. In the present-day timeline, Jack is dead, and his wife, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), is partnered up with Jack鈥檚 longtime best friend, Miguel (Jon Huertas).

鈥淧eople always sort of raise an eyebrow when they ask me about that,鈥 Ventimiglia continued. 鈥淚t鈥檚 like one of my best friends says, 鈥楬ey, if anything happens to me, make sure my family is okay.鈥 I feel like Jack and Miguel were very close friends. Understandably, I feel like there is a duty of friendship.鈥

The relationship reveal was made way back in the second episode of the first season, and fans were shook. From the very beginning, Jack and Rebecca were the ultimate in couple goals; it wasn鈥檛 until the rest of the season unfolded that viewers realized Jack was no longer alive in the present-day Pearson timeline 鈥 and that maybe Rebecca and Miguel鈥檚 union made more sense than many were willing to admit.

Ventimiglia added that even if he doesn鈥檛 get to be in every scene with his on-screen wife anymore, when he does, it鈥檚 pure magic. 鈥淚 feel loved as Jack,鈥 he shared. 鈥淪he鈥檚 the best scene partner you could ever hope to have.鈥 Lucky Miguel!
