“My mom is the hugest Oprah fan ever, and it’s her dream to meet Oprah. I met her a year ago at an event in London, and I was thinking about calling my mom and saying, ‘Just get in the car and get over here!’ She is so calm and collected, but I know she will lose it while meeting Oprah. I want to see that moment!,” Harris said.
