One of Oprah Winfrey’s childhood dreams recently came true.

The talk show host, 56, was surprised by her longtime crush – Jackie Jackson of the Jackson 5 – while filming a segment for her Teen Heartthrobs episode.

Jackson, who popped up behind Winfrey unexpectedly at her desk with flowers while she was working and had no makeup on, says he was excited to make her dreams come true.
