Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesRyan McKenna, aka "Selfie Kid", the 13-year-old with whom Justin Timberlake took a selfie during the Super Bowl halftime show, was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday.

Selfie Kid, whose real name is Ryan McKenna, was greeted by a round of applause by the audience of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and received a hug from the Emmy-winning talk show host. And he said he didn't even know Timberlake would be in his area during his performance.

Ryan's dad his surprised him with Super Bowl tickets two weeks before the championship game. McKenna was then further overwhelmed when Timberlake presented his gift to him: The singer said he wants to properly meet McKenna, so he and his got VIP passes to the MA stop of his Man Of The Woods tour (and the National Football League also gave them a nice package of goodies that includes tickets and special access to a Patriots home game next season). "We didn't know. The lady told us we were in a good section, but we had no idea that Justin was going to be there", McKenna recalled.

"It's nice to meet you finally", he told McKenna on the phone.

One of the most memorable moments of the 2018 Super Bowl was the "selfie kid", and Justin Timberlake recently surprised the teen on Ellen. "But we had no idea Justin was going to be there".

Luckily McKenna gets a second chance at a selfie soon.

When Ellen asked how Ryan feels about the prospect of being forever remembered as part of the performance, he raved about Justin, saying, "It's so crazy.he's just an awesome dancer, singer, and everything!" But when Timberlake did show up, he pushed through the crowd to get the flawless selfie - and it paid off. "It just shut off".

"Oh my God, thank you so much", Ryan replied. The NFL even gave his family a VIP experience to a Patriots home game.

"Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together", Timberlake said before signing off.
