Michelle Obama dances with Parker Curry, her littlest fan

WASHINGTON — A little girl who was transfixed by a portrait of Michelle Obama last week got to meet the real person Tuesday — and even danced with the former first lady.

A photo of Parker Curry, 2, staring at Obama’s portrait in the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery went viral last week, attracting the attention of the former first lady.

In a Tuesday tweet, Obama shared a video of Parker and herself dancing in her Washington office.

“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 tweet said.

Parker, who viewed Obama’s new portrait with her mother, Jessica Curry, was “fascinated” with the artwork, her mother┬ásaid last week.

“Parker was in front on the portrait, and I really wanted her to turn around so I could get a picture with her, and she genuinely, honestly would not turn around,” Jessica Curry said.
