Philadelphia 76ers rookie dancer Angela got the surprise of her life when her military boyfriend, Army Sergeant Elliot Burgos, returned home a week early, surprising her during Saturday’s game.
In a video released by the NBA team, Burgos, during his 11-month deployment, can be seen delivering a message to his distant lady as the team’s mascot, Franklin the Dog, hands him a bouquet of flowers. That’s when Angela, who thought Burgos would be back from overseas in a week, realizes that her boyfriend is indeed in the game.
The couple, who have been dating since 2014, fall into each other’s warm embrace. Angela couldn’t hold back her tears at the incredible reunion. Watch the full emotional video below.
