A little girl who went viral for being photographed staring at Michelle Obama’s portrait at the National Portrait Gallery got an up-close meet up with FLOTUS herself!
Michelle Obama invited 2-year-old Parker Curry for a dance party after she was totally taken with Parker’s adorable picture in front of her painting.
Parker, I'm so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I'll proudly look up at a portrait of you! pic.twitter.com/faUVTsYWun

Michelle took to Twitter to share a video of her and Parker dancing to “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift. Little Parker seems stoked to be hanging out with FLOTUS — and clearly the feeling was mutual. Michelle wrote alongside the Twitter video, “Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you!”
Talk about a super sweet moment.
Last week, Parker was photographed by a couple staring up at Michelle’s portrait in the National Portrait Gallery. The tiny tot seemed to be the living embodiment of what Michelle’s hopes for the portrait. During the unveiling ceremony, Michelle told the press, “I am thinking about all of the young people, particularly girls and girls of color, who in years ahead will come to this place, and they will look up and see someone who looks like them hanging on the walls of this great institution.”
Donna Hines & I made a pilgrimage today and we were delighted to wait in line behind this fellow art lover & hopeful patriot.
Awww – this one is just too sweet for words!
