'Whoa!' See Joey Lawrence meet another joey — a baby kangaroo — on TODAY

Joey Lawrence first rose to fame on the small screen in the '80s and 90s, playing a couple of other Joeys — Joey Donovan on "Gimme a Break!" and Joey Russo on "Blossom."

But when the actor stopped by TODAY Wednesday to talk about his latest film, "Saved by Grace," he came face-to-face with a very different joey.

Joey Lawrence met a little joey — as in a baby kangaroo.

"Whoa!" he said as he was handed the denim-wrapped critter from the Columbus Zoo. "No, way! Oh, my gosh! Are you kidding me?"

No joke! This Joey-joey moment was all real.

"My girls — Charli, Libby — check this out!" he said, pointing to his new pal. "Look at this! ... My girls would be flipping out right now. I have a 10 and 6-year-old. They would be flipping out."

Given that the furry visitor inspired a half dozen eager oh-my-goshes from dad alone, we can only imagine!
