Justin’s grandparents and Selena weren’t the only ones who had an ‘unforgettable experience’ at the LA Zoo on June 22. One lucky little girl got the surprise of her life when the Biebs approached her, put his arm around her and introduced himself, an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Justin Bieber made sure that his grandparents and Selena Gomez had a magical adventure at the LA Zoo on June 22, where they got to go behind the scenes and meet some of the animals up close. One other person who had a magical experience was an 11-year-old girl with a disability who Justin befriended while checking out one of the exhibits, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez: Inside Their LA Zoo Date

No matter what Justin is doing, he always has time to make his fans smile — even when he is on a date with Selena!

On Sunday, June 22, Justin took a break from Selena and his grandparents so that he could thrill a young girl in a wheelchair.

“One of the sweetest moments of the day was when Justin took it upon himself to go and introduce himself to a little girl who [had a disability]. She was about 8 or 9-years-old. Justin saw her when he was at the Rainforest of the Americas exhibit. He walked up to her, put his arm around her and introduced himself. The look at the little girl’s face was priceless. She had the biggest smile on her face. He then met her parents and took a photo with her. It was just so sweet,” Genie Vasels, the Vice President for Institutional Advancement of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“Selena was smiling and watching. It was just such a heart warming experience,” says Genie, who took Justin and his special guests behind the scenes to meet the animals at the zoo.

Justin has been in hot water for quite some time now, so it’s refreshing to know that he still has a big heart when it comes to his fans.

Selena: How She’s Helping Justin Return To His Old Sweet Self

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Selena has had a profound impact on Justin since their reunion.

“Justin said he wanted to do something really special for his grandparents who were visiting from Canada,” Genie told us EXCLUSIVELY.

“Justin was a complete gentleman and just so polite with everyone. It was his idea to take his grandparents to the LA Zoo.”

How sweet is that? We just love hearing that Justin’s family still comes first.

What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, has Justin returned to his old sweet self again? Do YOU think Selena is a positive influence on Justin?

To the reporter, Sandra Clark:

Please update a couple things –
I am the mom of the little girl – her name is Leyamae. She turned 11 on 6/11. Also, “disabled girl” isn’t correct language – she is a little girl with a disability; there is an important difference. Thank you

Justin isn’t likely to have heard any racist talk where he came from. I have spent much time there and know this. he was 13 when he moved to Atlanta and I expect that is where he heard stuff like that. he wouldn’t know of the impact of the “N” word as americans know it. i watched the videos and saw a young boy who likes to be funny entertaining his friends. the kkk stuff would certainly come from around Atlanta. I understand how people in the u.s. feel about that kind of talk but Justin is not and never has been a racist. I expect he has a whole new understanding himself.
