The former first lady's staff got in touch with Jessica Curry the mother of two-year-old Parker, and invited the family to visit her office.
When the photo a two-year-old girl mesmerized by Michelle Obama's portrait at the National Portrait Gallery went viral, little did she know that it would lead her to meet her hero.
The image was shared by Ben Hines on Facebook last captioned: "Donna Hines and I made a pilgrimage today and we were delighted to wait in line behind this fellow art lover and hopeful patriot."
The post immediately went viral and when Michelle Obama heard of her little fan she decided she had to meet the little girl.
The former first lady's staff got in touch with Jessica Curry the mother of two-year-old Parker, and invited the Curry family to visit her office on Tuesday.
The former FLOTUS posted about her day with Parker with the caption: "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!"
The meeting between the two lasted for 45 minutes during which the two also danced to Taylor Swift's Shake it Off.
Twitterati melted over the adorable post and expressed their appreciation for the former First Lady:

When the portrait by Amy Sherald was unveiled last month, Michelle said she was thinking of young girls, and girls of colour, "who in the years ahead will come to this place and see an image of someone who looks like them hanging on the wall of a great American institution".
