We’ve all been there: meeting someone for the first time and feeling the butterflies in our stomach. But for one 78-year-old woman, those butterflies were multiplied tenfold when she got to meet her celebrity idol, Harry Styles, at the 2023 Grammys. Reina, a great-grandmother from Ontario, Canada, and self-proclaimed Styles superfan, was given the opportunity of a lifetime when she presented the “As It Was” singer with the album of the year award.
It was a moment that will be remembered for years to come. Reina, who was featured in a prerecorded video earlier in the evening, exclaimed with joy when Harry Styles ran directly into her arms. Brimming with excitement, the duo shared a sweet embrace and did a celebratory shimmy on stage. After a few seconds, Styles pulled back to give Reina a kiss on the cheek and accept his award.
The moment was made even more special when Styles paused to share a hug with his peer and friend Lizzo on his way up to the stage. It was a dream come true for Reina, who loves everything about Styles, from his outlook to his songs.
The 2023 Grammys were a star-studded affair, but it was Reina and Harry Styles’ heartwarming exchange that made it a night to remember. See the full exchange at the Grammys ahead.
