Russell Wilson surprised his mom with the gift of a lifetime over the weekend: a home.
The superstar athlete shocked his mom, Tammy Wilson, when he casually handed her the keys to her own house.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback posted video of the big moment on Instagram.
In the video, Tammy Wilson appears not to believe him initially, she eventually burst into tears and slowly walked towards her home. Wilson’s wife, Ciara, and their 2-year-old daughter were waiting for her at the door.
In the Instagram post caption, he wrote, “All these years you have never asked me for anything... only thing you ever wanted is for me to LOVE. Well thanks for loving us the way you do. This ones for you. I love you momma.”

Last month, Wilson scored a $140 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks, which makes him the highest paid player in the league.
