Get a tissue ready because Brooklyn Nets forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is about to make you cry.
The Nets rookie and his brother Rahlir surprised their mother Rylanda with the ultimate birthday gift—her very own house.
“It’s every kid’s dream to one day get their mom out of the situation that they're in. It’s very touching for us to be able to do it,” Hollis-Jefferson says in a video capturing the moment.
The surprise was perfect, despite the candles on the birthday cake not cooperating. Rylanda was understandably emotional and finally figured out why everyone said this was going to be the best birthday ever.
“Every year is my best birthday,” Rylanda said.
This one might take the top spot.
