Would you be willing to give your ex-partner a house? For a generous man, paying off his ex-girlfriend’s mortgage was a “no brainer” decision.
On TikTok, Cat Keenan shared how surprised she was when her ex-boyfriend Shaun Nyland gave her a wonderful birthday gift. The couple were together for 7 years and have a son named Leo before going their separate ways.
On Cat’s 31st birthday, Shaun decided to gift her something that she and their son would never forget. He paid off Cat’s mortgage so they would have a house of their own.
In the viral video, Shaun can be seen handing Cat a set of house keys. She asked him, “Why are you giving me these for?”
“It’s your birthday today, I want you to have the best birthday ever,” Shaun replied.
He continued that he’s so proud of Cat for being a great mother and wanted to do something special for her.
Shaun said, “And look, I know we’re not together anymore, and I’ve been so proud of you, you’re the best mom ever, so I did something. I rang up the bank, I paid off the entire mortgage. This house now belongs to you.”
At first, Cat wouldn’t believe Shaun. The man had to go on and convince her. “I promise you, this house belongs to you. I rang the bank, paid it off, you own this house,” he said.
In another video, Shaun explained that it was an easy decision for him to make. He saw how Cat tried to live a comfortable life even if it was difficult.
“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.
In the end, Shaun said he feels proud and lucky that he gets to give his ex-girlfriend such a wonderful gift.
“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 wouldn’t you? It was a no-brainer for me.”
Just wishing many more exes would think that way!
