'DWTS' Hunk James Maslow Throws Private Prom for Fan with Down Syndrome

James Maslow Fan Prom

Along with just scoring the first perfect score of the season on last night's Dancing With the Stars, singer James Maslow did something pretty darn special.

The Big Time Rush singer accepted a "prom-posal" from fan Hannah Wackernagle, who has Down syndrome.

While he could not attend Hannah’s prom due to his hectic DWTS schedule, the singer invited her to L.A. for their own private prom.

On Sunday, April 13, Hannah, a high school senior in Ohio, her mother and her sister flew to Los Angeles to meet with Maslow. He staged their own prom in the show’s ballroom and they even performed a dance with an assist from Peta Murgatroyd, James' partner on the show. He wrote on Instagram the following message, which accompanied the photo below, "My beautiful prom date today. Keep an eye out for Hannah in the audience tomorrow at #DWTS!"

But that wasn’t all. They also went to Disneyland! He posted the following photo to Instagram with the message, "I had so much fun today at [Disneyland] with Hannah, her sis Lilly, mama Holli and [Peta Murgatroyd]. See you guys in the morning!."

Watch this adorable video from their prom.

"#promproposal by deciding to fly her, her mom and her sister out to LA, then spending the day at Disney and then dancing with her on the set of DWTS. I was honored when he asked if I would style her hair for her! I LOVE seeing how happy she is.❤️ #Liveforthis #goodtimes #sweet #jamesmaslow #dwts #btr"

Such a heartwarming story and such a great guy.
