A man has left both the internet and his ex-girlfriend stunned after he decided to pay off her mortgage…
Shaun Nyland took to TikTok to film his ex-girlfriend, Cat’s, reaction to the surprise.
He gave Cat, who is the mother of his child, the surprise on her thirty-first birthday.
Because she’s a good mom!
In the video posted to TikTok, which has more than 5 million views, Shaun films himself passing Cat a set of keys as she asks: “Why are you giving me these for?”
“It’s your birthday today, I want you to have the best birthday ever,” he said. “And look, I know we’re not together anymore, and I’ve been so proud of you, you’re the best mum ever, so I did something. I rang up the bank, I paid off the entire mortgage. This house now belongs to you.”
Cat didn’t believe Shaun at first… until he told her to check her emails.
“I promise you, this house belongs to you. I rang the bank, paid it off, you own this house.”
After posting the video online, comments came flooding in, with many people asking the same question… Why?
Well, Shaun explained in a separate video that he decided to pay off the mortgage not just for Cat, but also for their son.
“At the end of the day, my ex-girlfriend gave me the best gift any man could ask for by bringing Leo into this world and I know it was tough for Cat to try and live the same lifestyle we lived but by herself,” he said.
“Honestly guys, I’m still shaking right now. I’m just so grateful that I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do this, not just for Cat, but also for my baby so that he’s got a roof over his head for the rest of his life guaranteed, and I just think if you can do that then why wouldnt you. It was a no-brainer for me.”
The pair were together for 7 years before they split earlier this year.
