This mom’s adorable reaction to seeing her favorite boyband reunited is warming our frigid hearts

Once you’re a true boyband fan, you’re a fan forever and ever, regardless of how many years go by.

Kennedy Kocheran and her mom, Kim Mesteller, are from Columbus, Ohio, and recently went to go see a New Kids on the Block reunion show with Kim’s BFF, Kristen Watters. (In case you were unaware, the NKOTB were big on the scene in the ’80s and ’90s.) Kim and Kristen have apparently been fans of the band since 1986, and were understandably super stoked about seeing them in concert, particularly when they were so close to the stage. 

Kennedy managed to snap some photos of Kristen’s reaction when NKOTB member Joey McIntyre actually grabbed her arm from the stage — and her face was utterly priceless.

Kennedy shared the photos to Twitter, and everyone was pretty much like “Same, TBH.”

But the most incredible response came from the New Kids on the Block official Twitter account, telling Kim and Kristen that it was “lovely” to see them.

And yes — Kim saw the tweet and had about the reaction you’d expect.

Here’s to the diehard fangirls who never leave a boyband behind. You’re what make concerts worthwhile.
