"Deklan was starstruck and just kept smiling and had a little giggle when she asked him questions as he is shy. She gave him a cuddle goodbye; she's such a lovely, caring person."

"My eldest daughter has had her ultimate dream come true tonight, and I can't say thank you enough for giving my kids the amazing experience of meeting the beautiful Taylor Swift," one parent posted on Facebook.

Bella's mother also noted that security was tight and media weren't alerted, saying, "it shows she was there for the kids rather than a publicity stunt".
