After informing his ex-girlfriend that he had paid off her mortgage, he left her stunned.

Shaun Nyland told his ex-girlfriend Cat the news and videotaped her response, which he then posted on TikTok.

On her 31st birthday, he told Cat, his child’s mother, the excellent news.

Shaun is seen handing Cat a pair of keys in the TikTok video, which has over 5 million views, while she wonders, “Why are you giving me these for?”

“It’s your birthday today,” he continues, “and I want you to have the best birthday ever.”

“And look, I know we’re no longer together, but I’ve always admired you and think you’re the finest mom ever, so I did something,” I called the bank and paid off the entire loan. This property is now yours. “

Cat is unfazed by the news and tells Shaun that she doesn’t believe him.

“I swear to you; this place is yours.” You own this house because I called the bank and paid it off.”

He advises Cat to check her emails for confirmation, and when she does, she learns it’s not a prank and cannot believe it.

Shaun released another video in which he explains why he decided to pay off Cat’s and their son’s mortgages.

Finally, he said, “I know it was tough for Cat to attempt to live the same lifestyle we had but alone,” since his ex-girlfriend gave him the most incredible gift any man could wish for by giving birth to Leo.

“Honestly, I’m still trembling right now, folks.” I’m just pleased that I’ve been able to do this, not just for Cat but also for my son, to ensure that he has a roof over his head for the rest of his life, and I just believe that if you can do that, why wouldn’t you? For me, it was a no-brainer.”

Shaun and Cat dated for seven years before splitting early this year.

For the sake of their child, I’m delighted these two have a healthy connection.
