Maddie Ziegler, the adorable former Dance Moms child star dancer and now judge on Fox‘s So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation, just turned sixteen — and pop star Sia couldn’t be more thrilled.
The “Chandelier” singer/songwriter has grown close with the teen over the years as she starred and danced in Sia’s music videos and onstage performances, personifying the famously shy chanteuse. To celebrate Ziegler’s sweet sixteen on September 30, the Australian superstar bought her a car — a $32,000 white Audi Q3 topped with a giant red bow.
Both Sia and Ziegler posted photos and videos of the car and the over-the-moon reaction of its new owner, with Sia captioning her shots:
Happy Birthday to my most special noonoo.
And an appreciative Ziegler saying:
sweet sixteen <3 can’t believe this car is actually mine !!
Sia fans couldn’t believe the singer’s generosity:

What Ziegler’s fans wanted most was to wish her a happy birthday!
Ziegler was last seen driving off in her new ride shouting, “Sia later!”
