Erin Cross has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia since she was just 2 years old. She is now 7 years old and has spent years fighting for recovery — some days doctors told her parents she might not make it.
Just this month Erin was named a winner in the prestigious 2017 WellChild Award where she got to meet Prince Harry. Erin and her dad were then featured on ITV Lunchtime News to celebrate the award. It was here Erin left reporter, Lucrezia Millarini, “blushing” after asking her live on air if she was single.
Erin has been through chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and a bone marrow transplant — so it’s safe to say not much can faze this little warrior.
“I’ve got a question from a friend,” says Erin. “Are you single?”
The shocked news reporter was briefly flustered, clearly not expecting the question.
“Erin! I’m blushing,” she managed to respond before regaining composure and moving on.
Erin was reportedly asking for her dad, which is just downright adorable. She also told the reporter that the number of times she has Prince Harry is more than the number of girlfriends he’s had (five in total). She also mentioned telling her dad not to embarrass her with his dad dancing at the award ceremony.
