The holiday season is meant to be shared with loved ones, but, unfortunately, many brave men and women serving in armed forces won’t be able to make it home to their spouses and children in time.
In the video, mom Ruth Stevens came up with an amazing idea to surprise her kids, who had gone three months without seeing their dad Scott, as he had been away serving in the Royal Navy. When mom finally lets them open up the massive present, the stunned kids start shouting “Daddy, daddy, daddy – it’s daddy!”
At first, the brother and sister were amazed by the size of the gift, and couldn’t guess what was underneath all the colorful wrapping paper.
But soon enough, the kids realized their present was a ‘who’ instead of a ‘what.’ After being deployed for three months, their father managed to make it home safely for Christmas.
Watch the entire video below to see the adorable reaction these kids have after opening the best Christmas gift ever.
