Earlier this season,
we met an adorable three year old gymnast. Who’s appearance on our show has
been viewed over 25 million times. From El Paso, Texas,
please welcome Emma and her mom Annie.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>What’s different? Something’s different about you.>>It’s because I have glasses.>>That’s what it is, you have glasses on. When did you get the glasses?>>[LAUGH]
>>Just very recently, it’s very new.>>Recent and do you like them?>>Mm-hm.>>I loved them. I think they’re great. They’re a great color. They’re adorable.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>Now, can you do the gymnastics in the glasses?>>Yeah.
>>How do you do them?>>Can you tell her about your
special glasses that you have for gym?>>[LAUGH]
>>Are they like goggles?>>Yeah.
>>Yeah, they’re like goggles, so they stay on. There’s a strap and everything?>>Mm-hm.>>Did you know that she needed glasses? Cuz last time you were here you
thought she was just clumsy.>>[LAUGH]
>>[LAUGH]>>Well, I was a little bit concerned because clumsiness is one
thing but she kept running into things. And I’m not sure that that’s so normal.>>Right.>>So,
I actually had her eyes checked then. Why do you need glasses? Can you tell her? She’s lacking depth perception.>>Uh-huh.>>So she can see fine,
she can see what’s in front of her.>>Uh-huh.
>>But she can’t tell exactly how
far away it is from her.>>I see.
>>That’s why she kept running into things.>>It’s amazing though cuz you’re so
good at gymnastics, you’d think that you’d have to be good at
depth perception with gymnastics, right?>>Yes.
>>That’s amazing. So, that’s just totally
fine to do gymnastics. You don’t have any problem with that. So, you’re four years old now. You had a birthday. What did you do to celebrate? What did she do to celebrate?>>[LAUGH]
>>Where did you go? Do you want to tell
everyone where we went?>>She’s having a shy day. It’s okay.>>She’s having a shy day.>>It’s okay.
>>Yeah, we went Jungle Jack’s and well her favorite thing was I think riding the
bumper cars and the bumper boats probably. Yeah, that was good.>>That’s great, so I know your
husband is overseas, he’s in the army. So, and he missed Emma’s birthday, right?>>Yes he did.>>So, that’s really tough. Were you able to FaceTime or do anything?>>Yeah,
we were able to get him on FaceTime.>>Yeah.
>>When she opened her presents, we had him on FaceTime so
he could see that.>>And there’s a certain way
that you could get messages. Last time you were here
you had the hug jar.>>Yes.>>And now there’s a new way that
you can hear messages, what is it?>>Do you wanna tell her about Ello?>>I think it’s in a bag over there,
if you want to show me how it works.>>You want to show her ello? Yeah.>>It’s a kitty, and what happens?>>You push the blue button.>>You push which button?>>Sweet dreams, princess,
I love you so much, and I miss you a whole bunch, and
I can’t wait to talk to you. [SOUND] Sweet dreams.>>That’s your daddy being able
to talk to you through the kitty.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>That’s so sweet. I love that. All right.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>We have to take a break. When we come back,
I know you have another kitty too. Felix, right? Is Felix your kitty? So, I have a little treat for Felix. We’ll be back. Now, we have a little surprise for you. We have your dad come on out Brent. [MUSIC]>>[APPLAUSE]>>My God.>>[APPLAUSE], [MUSIC]>>How about that,
that’s a surprise right? That’s a good surprise. Surprise!>>Thank you!>>I’m so happy that you’re here. You’ve been stationed in Korea and
you only are here for a few days. So, thanks to the US Army for
allowing this to happen. Thank you so much.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>How are you?>>Are you happy? Are you happy?>>Thanks.
>>That is so precious when she was just playing
your voice through the little kitty. That’s such a great idea
that she gets to hear you.>>Yeah, she gets one every morning and
every night.>>That’s so sweet! So you missed her birthday,
that must’ve been really tough on you.>>Yeah it was, we usually do something
very special for her birthday. We’ll do a trip or
make it a very special day just for her. All about her day. But I wasn’t there. So, we did it through FaceTime. So, I was kinda there but
not there at the same time. I got to watch her open all her gifts and
see the excitement still.>>Well, we want you to have as much
fun as possible while you’re here and celebrate her birthday
now that you’re here. So, we’re sending you to Disneyland.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>You’re going to see [INAUDIBLE]
>>Thank you>>Thank you for being here. Have fun enjoy yourselves.
