President-elect Barack Obama’s two young daughters have been invited to appear on Hannah Montana.
“We’re pleased that Malia and Sasha are fans and, as long as their parents say it’s OK, they are invited to the set of Hannah Montana and all Disney Channel shows, for a guest role or a visit, anytime,” the Disney Channel says in a statement.
The Disney Channel statement follows a personal invite from Billy Ray Cyrus, father of the show’s star Miley Cyrus, for Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, to take part in an episode.
“You know the Hannah Montana film comes out in April. Maybe something might happen around then,” he tells Access Hollywood.
Asked to comment, a source within the Obama campaign told PEOPLE, “It’s a very generous invitation.”
