It was only a matter of time. Laurie Hernandez, the Olympic champion gymnast nicknamed “The Human Emoji,” is now available in app form to insert into texts.

“Laurie Hernandez the Human Emoji” app was launched last week, downloadable for $1.99 on iOS and Android devices.

More information on the app is available here.

The launch capped an incredible 2016 for Hernandez, who was a junior-age-level gymnast before this year. Hernandez moved up to senior, made the Olympic team as the youngest woman on Team USA across all sports and took home team gold and balance beam silver from Rio.

Hernandez then won “Dancing with the Stars,” joining Shawn Johnson as gymnasts to win that title.

What’s ahead for Hernandez in 2017? Continuing her “Dancing with the Stars” tour and, possibly, a return to competition, based on her recent comments.

The app’s description:
