Lauren Alaina Shares Virtual Dinner Date With a Special Fan: ‘A Lot of Happy Crying’

Lauren Alaina had a special virtual dinner date recently sharing sushi with a TikTok fan.

In December, TikTok user Ryan’s sister Brittany shared a video of herself asking her brother which celebrity he would most want to have dinner with.

Ryan responded, “I would say country music star Miss Lauren Alaina,” Ryan said in the video clip. “She’s a Christian. She’s a great singer, plus she’s super nice and she’s also super sweet.”

Well Lauren saw the video and reached out to suggest a virtual dinner date!

In the Zoom dinner, they talked about their mutual love of the movie Elf and Laureneven dressed up in an Elf costume!

“He talked more about my character than even the music, which really stood out to me, and meant so much to me,” Alaina told PEOPLE. “I cried watching it. And then I cried watching his reaction and then I cried meeting him. It was just a lot of happy crying.”
