An image of Curry staring at the painting went viral, and Mrs. Obama reached out to have a dance party with the cute toddler.

The two-year-old who became an internet sensation over the weekend when a photo of her looking entranced by the portrait of the former first lady, got to meet Michelle Obama Tuesday.

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

Parker Curry's awestruck reaction to Michelle Obama's official portrait in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, was captured by a fellow museum visitor on March 1, 2018.

Curry's mother, Jessica, told CNN that her little girl was so enamoured by the portrait that she simply couldn't tear her eyes away and wouldn't turn around so she could take a photo.

The Obama's portraits, created by artists, Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, were unveiled on February 12, at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

"This young girl can now dream about being someone like Michelle Obama".

"In further discussion with (Parker) yesterday and today, I realized that she believes Michelle Obama is a queen, and she wants to be a queen as well", Curry said.

"I think we were all just smiling, and her joy and her awe was infectious", he said. She wrote in the about me section of the website, "Millennial Mama to two happy little girls, Parker & Ava. I knew I wanted to be an artist already, but seeing that painting made me realise that I could".

Parker is a big fan of Michelle Obama. What dreams may come? Not the current president, but the last one - and not the person, but the portrait. Wiley and Sherald were the first black artists commissioned to paint a presidential couple for the Smithsonian.
