Ellen DeGeneres loves rewarding deserving individuals around the world, so when she caught wind of one military wife’s inspiring story, she decided to give the family one extraordinary surprise.
During a recent taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the talk show host stunned one audience member, Mary, with a call from her husband, Chris, who was away from home for military training in Missouri. Chris revealed that due to certain conditions, he wasn’t able to get home for their ten-year wedding anniversary — the only one he has ever missed!
After hearing the heartfelt exchange, DeGeneres invited the woman to come onstage and share her story. Mary revealed that the family’s car was on its last leg because she has to drive six hours — each way — if she wants to visit her husband. DeGeneres surprises the family was a brand new Ford Escape. But the gifts didn’t stop there!
Finally, DeGeneres reveals that she has one more surprise in store. We won’t spoil it for you, but the magical moment at 3:37 actually makes this woman scream! You don’t want to miss this.
This isn’t the first time Ellen has surprised a military family, and it certainly won’t be the last.
