Little girl from Atlanta snatches pope's skullcap
Three-year-old Estella visited the pope with her godfather.
— -- Three-year-old Estella Westrick almost snagged an impressive souvenir on her first visit to Italy: Pope Francis' skullcap.
She snatched his skullcap, also known as a zucchetto, when he leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek after his Wednesday audience in Vatican City.
Mountain Butorac, who posted a video of the encounter on Twitter, told ABC News that Estella is his goddaughter and that she and her family were visiting from Atlanta.
Butorac lives in Rome and runs a Catholic tour company, the Catholic Traveler.
Francis took the incident in stride and can be seen laughing in the video.
NY AG says she may seize Trump's buildings if he can't pay his $354M civil fraud fine
