Lizzo Surprised Her Mom with a Car for Christmas and Her Reaction Is Everything

This is the sweetest video.

  • Happy Holidays, Lizzo surprised her mom with a brand new Audi for Christmas and the video is just lovely.
  • Lizzo wrote a touching note about wanting to spoil her mom.

Welp, Lizzo is officially the best daughter ever. And by that I mean she went ahead and surprised her mom, Shari Johnson-Jefferson, with a casual car for Christmas. Lizzo posted a video of the surprise to Instagram on Sunday, writing:

"Got my mommy a brand new Audi for Xmas 🎄I remember crying in my car when my daddy passed, no job no money nowhere to live, wishing I could one day provide for my family.. I couldnt do it for my dad so ima make sure I spoil Mama. Happy holidays y’all."

In the video, Lizzo says "okay...merry Christmas mommy, open your eyes!" before showing her mom a brand new Audi with a giant red bow on top. I gift. ever.

BRB while I watch this video over and over again. Oh, and P.S. @ my mom, if you're reading this, you will be getting a scarf I knit in the early days of quarantine, which is almost the same as a new car. You're welcome!
