When some people get presents for their mom on Mother’s Day, they’ll usually look for a nice bouquet of flowers or a piece of jewelry. But when Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson went shopping for his mom, he thought a little bit bigger.
Wilson shared a video that reveals on Mother’s Day, he brought his mother, Tammy, to a house and presented her the keys. She asks what they’re for and Russell Wilson offhandedly remarks, “They’re for your house.”
Tammy Wilson takes a moment to process what Russell says before it dawns on her. She screams in excitement and jumps up and down before her eyes start tearing up.
You can see the whole breakdown below:

Wilson can certainly afford the house – or the whole neighborhood if he were so inclined.
He recently signed an NFL record-setting contract with a four-year, $140 million contract extension. Even before the contract extension, he had a personal net worth of well-over $100 million.
Wilson has done all kinds of charity work since joining the NFL in 2012. But few of those works are quite as awe-inspiring in terms of jerking tears than this one.
Good job Russell, and a Happy Mother’s Day Tammy Wilson!
