Dreams do come true — and if you don't believe that, then ask Papa Richy.

Papa Richy is an 80-year-old grandfather who absolutely loves singer Dua Lipa. He initially went viral on TikTok after his family gave him tickets to the Future Nostalgia singer's concert.

But the joy on his face was nothing compared to his reaction over the second big surprise he received recently. You can try guessing!

Rum roll, please! The viral TikTok personality actually got the chance to meet his favorite star, along with his 22-year-old granddaughter Kadie Bernstein, during a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The episode was premiered on YouTube on March 3, 2022.

In the said episode, the popular television personality Jimmy Fallon first told Lipa about her fan Papa Richy, his love for her, and how he became a popular figure overnight on TikTok.

He then revealed that his team reached out to him pretending they were a radio station and told him that he had won a contest for the best TikTok video of the year.

Afterward, they flew the old man and his granddaughter to the studio and surprised him by leading him onto the set in the middle of the show, where he met Lipa in person.

If you haven't watched the episode yet, do it now because his reaction to meeting the singer was priceless.

Papa Richy was even given a chance to fulfill his dream of dancing with his favorite star — and he seized the opportunity with both hands.

At the end of the episode, he recalled being there at her first show in Miami. "Did you enjoy it," she asked.

He responded by saying, "Loved it."

Fans Loved the Sweet Moment, Too!

After witnessing the old man living his dream, fans were over the moon and began pouring in tons of congratulatory messages.

"That was absolutely soooo adorable!!! So happy that sweet man got one of his dreams to come true," someone commented on YouTube's video.

Another chimed in, saying, "You have me crying and laughing at the same time. It's so adorable. So happy for him."

If that was not enough, the well-wisher of the old man also noted that the singer reshared her biggest fan's viral TikTok video on Instagram stories after the Fallon episode.

"OMG THIS MELTS MY HEART!!!" she wrote in her story.

After that, the granddaughter Bernstein shared a video of her talking with her grandfather via FaceTime, telling him that Lipa posted about him.

He was delighted, saying with a laugh, “Five minutes of fame is the greatest thing to ever happen.”

At present, Bernstein's TikTok handle, where all the viral videos were posted, has more than 10,700 followers.

But interestingly, she has not shared more than three videos, all of which are related to her grandfather and him showing his love for the singer.

The original video, posted in 2021, has gathered over 7.8 million videos as of this writing.
