This is the adorable moment a former Coronation Street star daughter met Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s girlfriend and Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.
Ryan Thomas, who is currently expecting a baby boy with girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh, took his daughter Scarlett to see the girl group in concert.
Sharing a number of clips from the gig, Ryan filmed Scarlett, a big Little Mix fan, anxiously awaiting their arrival backstage.
The 11-year-old could be seen fiddling her fingers and fidgeting before breaking out into a huge smile.
OK Magazine reports that as Perrie, Jade Thirwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh Anne Pinnock walk down the corridor to meet her, Scarlett repeats “no way.”
They tell Scarlett they ‘love’ her outfit before Perrie asks: “Can we have hugs?”
After meeting all of the band and giving them hugs, Ryan snapped a photo of Scarlett with Little Mix and gushed in the caption.
He wrote: “You can only imagine that feeling of being a child meeting someone like this for the first time and how it makes you feel as a father watching the excitement on her face.
“Thank you to all the girls for making Scarlett’s night.”
Fans flooded the comments section to share their love for the photo.
One fan wrote: “Her face is amazing. So many precious memories in that one video.
Whilst another said: “Cutest thing ever omg.”
Ryan shares his daughter Scarlett with ex partner Tina O’Brien who he dated for six years before the couple split in 2009.
The youngster is now working on her talent at the Drama MOB , which Tina and best friend Esther Morgan set up in 2013.
Speaking about her daughter’s singing abilities, mother-of-two Tina, 36, told Manchester Evening News: “From the age of three she started singing so she started singing before she showed any interest in acting.
“She used to say ‘I don’t really fancy the acting but I like the singing’ and she used to sing Castle On A Cloud from Les Mis.
“A teacher sent me a video of her singing it and I thought ‘oh my gosh she’s actually really quite good.’”
