Domenic, 9, from Australia, is a huge fan of actor Hugh Jackman and the character he plays in the X-Men movies, Wolverine.

Domenic was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was a newborn, according to the YouTube video below. Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe, according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

With the help of the Make-A-Wish foundation, Domenic made a visit to Australian radio station KIIS 1065 where he got to speak to Jackman on the phone. What the little fan didn’t know was that Jackman was actually just in the other room. The smile on Domenic’s face when Wolverine himself bursts in is priceless.

Watch the video below for the whole interaction:
