Carson Daly's selfie on Ayo Edebiri's phone

Ayo Edebiri will always have something to remember Carson Daly — and she's sharing it with the world!

The Bear actress, 28, went viral on Monday when she asked Daly to hold her belongings before going on stage at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles to accept her 2023 Emmy Award.

As Daly, 50, recalled on the Today show on Wednesday, the two hadn't met until he was seated next to her that night. He was happy to oblige, holding her purse, iPhone and digital camera for about an hour while Edebiri went backstage to speak with the press about her win.

But while Edebiri was away, Daly had a play — taking a selfie on her camera phone. "Ayo’s phone though — it was locked of course, but I was able to get into the camera," he said. "I may have left her a little Easter egg. If she checks her camera, I don’t know ... maybe that will be there, we’ll see."

Well, Edebiri saw it — and on Friday's episode of Today, Daly was surprised with a copy of the pic sent to the NBC morning program by Edebiri herself.

With it, the actress also shared a note to Daly and his wife, Siri, who was also in the snap with him. "Carson and Siri," wrote Edebiri, "My voice is gone right now or I’d making a video but thank you so much for guarding my stuff with your life — and more importantly for this amazing selfie. You’re the greatest and I feel like we’re bonded for life. Thank you forever."

In the press room after her win, Edebiri opened up about the moment, joking that she turned to Daly because her parents were sitting in the "cheap seats" farther away from her.

"Carson Daly still has my stuff!" she shared, joking that if anything was missing, she'd know who took it.

Asked by Today's Savannah Guthrie on Wednesday if he knew their interaction was "blowing up" on social media, Daly said he had "no idea."

Hoda Kotb wondered then he learned it had gone viral, Daly said it wasn't until he was at Los Angeles International airport with Siri and their kids (son Jackson, 14, and daughters Etta, 11, London, 9, and Goldie, 3).

"I was in LAX flying home ... and a woman came up and was like, ‘Will you hold my purse?’" Daly remembered. "I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ I was like, ‘Oh, the Emmys.'"

That hasn't stopped since. "This morning, here, people were like, ‘Will you hold my stuff? Will you hold my stuff?'" said Daly. "If you see me on the streets, please don’t hand me your belongings."
