Kissing Booth star Joey King found a creative way to hug her gran for the first time since the pandemic restricted contact in March — by dressing up in a dinosaur suit.
In a hilarious and heartwarming video posted by Joey’s mum, Joey can be seen in a ridiculous orange t-rex costume with just her head visible behind a plastic window in the costume. Only her hands are uncovered.
The United States, where they live, hit 250,000 Covid-19 related deaths this week.
Joey’s nan, dressed in trendy camo trousers and a matching green jumper, looked thrilled as she finally embraced the 21-year-old star.
The caption reads: ‘Joey figured out a way to give her grandma her first hug since March!! @redsfarrar happy birthday to the matriarch of this family.
‘You taught us all to be strong, thoughtful women. You are the best mother of the mother!’
Joey, 21, shared a sweet childhood snap in tribute to her nan. In the throwback picture, a young Joey is dressed in a matching pink pyjama set and grins at her gran, whose blonde hair is cut in an elegant bob.
The caption reads: ‘Grandma it’s your birthday! And as I look at these pictures two thoughts come to mind.
‘1. You are mind blowingly stunning at every age…I mean how do you keep getting more beautiful?
‘And 2. ‘From the time I started having memories, to now, the joy you’ve brought me is far beyond explanation. Having you as my grandmother is the greatest gift I feel so lucky to have grown up with you as my designated grilled cheese maker, dress up partner, make believe buddy, and friend.
‘Please wear your masks, wash your hands and help stop the spread of this virus, because me and many others would like to give their grandmas a hug again soon.’
LA native Joey, who first gained fame playing Ramona Quimby in the comedy adapted from the bestselling books, will reprise her role as Elle Evans in the Kissing Booth sequels.
She previously dated her Kissing Booth co-star Jacob Elordi.
She is currently filming assassin thriller Bullet Train alongside Brad Pitt and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
