4-year-old Parker Curry visited with Melissa McCarthy on Little Big Shots, Sunday. Curry went viral 2 years ago when images of her staring at the first lady’s portrait garnered national attention.
Since then, Curry has met with Obama on three separate occasions. And the former first lady even posted a video of them having a little dance party together. Curry also dressed up as the first lady for Halloween, and recently published a book titled Parker Looks Up.
Curry is such a big fan that McCarthy wanted to surprise her with something extra special. She commissioned Brittany Jackson, the books illustrator, to create a portrait of Curry in Obama’s dress.
Curry seemed to love the gift. When McCarthy asked her where she wanted to put it, she replied, “In the National Portrait Gallery.”
