Ryan McKenna, the 13-year-old #SelfieKid who went viral earlier this week after taking an iconic selfie with Super Bowl performer Justin Timberlake, got a second chance to meet up with his picture pal on Friday (Feb. 9).
Timberlake plans to keep the tradition going once he tours TD Garden and the aftermath of the show, when he's able to meet McKenna.
That changed (sort of) when McKenna dropped by Ellen today and, to his surprise, reconnected with Timberlake over the phone (presumably, he was too busy promoting Man Of The Woods to visit in person).
McKenna was soon teary-eyed once more, when DeGeneres surprised the teen by having Timberlake call into the show.
"Because all of this has happened, I thought to myself, I really want to meet you properly", Timberlake said, via the Boston Globe.

McKenna made his way down to Timberlake a few rows down. "But I got there and I was there with him".
"The lady told us we were in a good section", he said.
The artist explained, "Basically, I knew that I wanted to end the performance with 'Can't Stop the Feeling!' because I knew how people respond to that song".
Despite all the noise, the pop star did his thing, and even though not everyone agrees on how much they actually enjoyed his performance, it should say something that the most memorable part of it was not Timberlake at all, but instead, that kid he got a selfie with. He said, "I can't believe this!" "I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together", Timberlake concluded in his surprise call. "It just shut off", McKenna said.
She then revealed that the National Football League had also provided a gift basket for the family, which included clothing apparel and tickets to multiple New England Patriots games and passes to go on the field.
