WITH twin girls on the way, Kirsty Whitehead is running out of time to give herself the VIP treatment, so she jumped at the chance to meet an idol.
The Tuross Head 17-year-old, her boyfriend Dakota Bermingham, and her sister Tamara, secured backstage passes to meet The X Factor star Reece Mastin in Canberra last month.
“After the concert we got to meet him,” Kirsty said.
The 20 or so lucky and mostly female fans were under strict instructions from the singer’s minders to keep their cool.
“They said, ‘don’t scream’,” Kirsty said. “But I got him to rub my belly.”
Kirsty’s girls are due on April 5, so fainting wasn’t really on the cards.
“They had people there in case anyone fainted, but I kept my hydration up,” she said.
The star proved down to earth.
“I was actually quite pleased how nice he was,” Kirsty said.
