Her dad sees it as money well spent if it makes her happy. | 22 Words

This certainly isn't the first time we've heard of someone seeking body modification from someone as a gift, Christmas or otherwise...

...but this might just be the weirdest such story we've ever come across. An overweight 23-year-old asked her dad for a new body...and got it. Here's how it went down, complete with all the strange details.

Haleigh York was a self-described "emotional eater" who would add Mountain and Pop Tarts to almost every meal.

As a result, her weight ballooned up to 285 pounds at one point.

She was self-conscious about airplanes and theme park rides, fearing that the seat belt wouldn't fit around her body.

“I didn’t feel like I could fit into clothes made for my size because everyone could see the ripple of excess skin through my clothing."

“My dad has always wanted what was best for me and didn’t want me being uncomfortable anymore after all I had achieved, so he said he would pay for my skin removal surgery."

"Daddy" ponied up not just for skin removal surgery, but for a boob job and tummy tuck as well.

The total bill? $27,000.

That's one hell of a Christmas gift, but I suppose it's nice that Haleigh's hard work is paying off with a body she's proud of. And then some...

“Male interest in me has gone up, it’s an odd feeling that I get asked out more and talked to at bars, even in retail stores."

Her dad sees it as money well spent if it makes her happy.

“Seeing someone go through bariatric surgery and dealing with the life changes is rough," he said.

Now with her future wide open, what does Haleigh plan to do?

“She was always beautiful, but now she is being asked to do modeling." Of course.
