Cyrus Porter, 96-year-old WWII veteran and oldest Taylor Swift fan, got the surprise of a lifetime when Taylor Swift herself showed up at his house in New Madrid, Missouri on December 26.

Swift played her hit song "Shake It Off" for Porter and his family, as well as taking time to meet his relatives, hold a baby or two, and check out his WWII memorabilia.

Cyrus Porter's grandson, Robert Frye, tweeted pictures and video of Taylor Swift's visit.

A family member named Caroline Fowler told E! News,

My Popo was ecstatic! He was grinning from ear to ear and even had tears in his eyes. The first thing he said to her was "How did you get here?" He loved every moment. He told her how he was proud of his family, his country and Taylor Swift!

Previously, in an interview with local TV station KFVS, Porter talked about his admiration for Taylor Swift, saying, "I've been to two concerts. Memphis and St Louis. Look what she does...she puts on a show no one else puts on...I just liked the way she did stuff."

Now he can add a third concert: his living room. Not too shabby!
