Little girl seen admiring Michelle Obama portrait meets former first lady

The moment was a real-life actualization of Obama's speech during the portrait's revealing, where she mentioned she hopes the imagery will inspire young Black young girls to reach their fullest potential.

The former first lady revealed the lovely cover of her memoir Becoming, on Instagram and discussed how personal and the moving the process of writing the book has been.

Ms Sherald saw the picture as well and shared it on her Instagram account, to which Ms Obama replied with three heart-eyed emojis.

It seems that the second time may be even sweeter for little Parker though, as on Tuesday she got the chance to met the girl in that painting - and have a dance party. Not the current president, but the last one - and not the person, but the portrait.

Mrs. Obama shared a video of herself with Parker, dancing to Taylor Swift's 2014 hit "Shake It Off".

In the now candid photo, Parker Curry stares at Michelle Obama as if she is fascinated or in awe.

"All I wanted was just one pic", Curry said. When her grandmother called her "a star", she said, instead, "I'm a big girl". His portrait was painted by artist Kehinde Wiley; hers was painted by Amy Sherald.
