First Lady Melania Trump dropped off her husband's five-nation blitz of Asia to visit the Beijing Zoo.
FLOTUS arrived at the backside of the Beijing Zoo Panda House at 10.20am local time.
A group of school children holding Chinese and American flags were waiting to greet her outside.
While they waited, a male panda named 'Meng'er' was released into the panda pen. His name roughly translates to cute #2.
The children ooh'd and awe'd as the panda crawled onto a platform and over to a pile of bamboo that he began munching on.
FLOTUS addressed the first group of children out of earshot. They led in the direction of the panda, showing him off.
