Laura Dee knew that her son and daughter would be happy to see their estranged father, so she staged a surprise that left the children crying at the airport.


A video posted to YouTube shows Darcie, 11, and Callum, 9, overcome with emotion after learning that their father would be joining them on holiday to Cyprus.

Laura and her children's father have been divorced for eight years. They remain on good terms and decided to adopt a co-parenting style. They got used to taking their children on vacations separately.

Darcie and Callum never thought that they would have a vacation as a whole family.

When they went to the airport for their flight to Cyprus, they had no idea that someone else was coming with them.

In the video, Callum can be seen leading the charge through the busy airport as the family tries to navigate their way to the boarding gate.

Then a familiar face emerges from the crowd. Callum's father walks straight toward him.

"He's coming with us," Laura, who is filming the emotional encounter, can be heard saying.

That's when Callum and Darcie break into tears of joy. Their father hugs them warmly as the surprise leaves them speechless.

Laura and her ex-husband had secretly planned the surprise for months, and they were delighted by the result.

"As parents, seeing our children upset is hard, all we want is to make our children happy,” Laura was quoted as saying. “Co-parenting is hard for many people, but we are proud of what we have achieved with bringing our children up.”

Parents are not the only one who plan delightful surprises.

Another viral video shows a son, who has been deployed in Spain for more than eight months as a U.S. Marine, surprising his parents with an unannounced visit.

As soon as he was informed that his deployment in Spain was about to come to its end, U.S. Marine Dave Woodruff wanted to do something special for his return.

He got in touch with a few of his friends back home and devised a top-secret homecoming plan to surprise his parents and other members of the family.

The reunion proved to be emotional for him and his parents who sorely missed their son.
