Years ago, Ariana Grande gave Jimmy Fallon a silly gift for his birthday: a sweatshirt with a baby picture of her on it! This year, for Ariana’s birthday, Jimmy returned the favor.

In this video, Ariana is sitting on Jimmy’s talk show couch (looking adorable as ever). He brought up the birthday gift she gave him and immediately she was amazed he had it with him.

Jimmy Fallon started by holding up the Ariana Grande sweatshirt and they both laughed about how much Ariana still looks like that little baby. She sure does!

But quickly, Jimmy reached down beside him and pulled out another sweatshirt. You could tell that Ariana understood what was happening — and got so excited!

The Reveal

Jimmy revealed a sweatshirt featuring the face of his five-year-old self, smiling for a school picture. How precious is this?

Ariana Grande will forever have a sweatshirt with little Jimmy Fallon’s face on it. Who woulda thunk!?

The audience and Ariana erupted in laughter, ooing and awwing young Jimmy’s adorable picture. It’s so amazing that, nowadays, you can easily make these prints. I think as a society, we should all be putting silly pictures on more sweatshirts.

Fans were in love with the gesture, taking to the comments to share their laughter.

One person pointed out Ariana’s grateful response.

“‘I’m going to cherish this forever.’ And that right there is why we love her so much. She’s so kind and so pure,” they wrote.

“I want Jimmy Fallon merch,” said another. He should start selling these!

Even though I may never have a sweatshirt with Jimmy Fallon’s face on it, it’s a joy to know that Ariana Grande has one. Happy birthday, Ari!
