Birthdays are special, and it’s an amazing feeling when your loved ones go out of their way to give you a great day. That’s exactly why our hearts are so, so full after watching a YouTube video posted by a husband who wanted to give his wife the birthday she’d always dreamed of. Or, perhaps, a birthday even better than she dreamed of — because it took a lot of convincing for her to believe it was even real.

In the video, the husband made his wife think they were going to be enjoying a nice staycation at a hotel for her birthday. Which, TBH, sounds great — a lovely weekend in at a nice hotel with some Netflix, food, and wonderful company is heavenly. But little did she know that her husband had much bigger plans in store.

With the kids in the car, he told his wife they were going to drop off the kids at a friend’s house, which happens to be near the airport. But when they pass the house and just start heading towards the airport, his wife is confused. And that’s when he tells her: “Honey, we’re going to New Orleans.”

That’s right: the entire family is going to New Orleans for her birthday! But she didn’t believe him, and he had to tell her over and over before she finally realized he wasn’t joking and burst into tears.

The video has already received over 30,000 views, and for a very clear reason. It’s so apparent that New Orleans means so much to her, because the look of pure happiness mixed with a wave of emotions is absolutely heartbreaking and yet beautiful and AHHH WE’RE FEELING SO MANY FEELS. This guy deserves the Husband of the Year Award for sure, because he just made his wife the happiest woman in the world.

Check out the entire video below, and be prepared to get a bit misty-eyed.
