WATCH: Hugh Jackman leaves lovely message to young Irish fan
What a man.
Hugh Jackman had a fairly incredible 2018. His portrayal of PT Barnum in The Greatest Showman was one of the most beloved cinema roles of the year, and he hasn't looked back since.
And as loved as he is around the world, we really love him in Ireland in particular.
So much so that he added TWO extra dates to his 'The Man. The Music. The Show' world tour that stops off in Dublin's 3Arena in May of this year.
And The Greatest Showman himself has just left a lovely message to one of his biggest Irish fans - 7-year-old Emma Cooney from Lucan in Dublin.
Cooney's mother, Jacqueline, decided to post a video of her daughter singing 'A Million Dreams' from the hit movie musical on Twitter, in the hopes of getting Jackman's attention.
Ok Twitterverse, I need your help - my little girl is #obsessed with #thegreatestshowman and @RealHughJackman but silly me didn’t realise this in time to get tickets to his show in #dublin 🙈 - so she sang this for him instead! Please help me get it to him & make my girl happy!❤️ pic.twitter.com/rdVvCUDxxW

And see it he did.
Jackman got back to the Cooney family with a video posted on his Twitter account.
In the video, the Australian said: "I just want to say to your little girl - thank you so much for singing that song. Thanks so much for being a fan. And never stop dreaming. And remember, life is what you choose to make it, so make it fantastic."
