In 2014, Jessica Gerren of North Carolina recorded a video to express just how much she missed her husband, Marine Corporal Christopher Gerren. Christopher was serving overseas at the time, and hadn’t seen his family in nearly seven long and emotional months.
Christopher was deployed right after his daughter Madison’s birthday. She was 18 months old at the time. During his deployment, Jessica gave birth to their second daughter, Remington.
I cannot imagine how difficult it was for Jessica and Christopher to be separated during the birth of their child.
When Ellen heard Jessica’s story, she invited her and her two adorable kids to a taping of her show in Los Angeles — but Jessica had no idea Ellen planned to reunite her with Christopher in a surprise homecoming.
In the video below, the couple has already tearfully embraced. They got reacquainted during the commercial break, and then Jessica slipped backstage again to grab Madison and Remington.
Now, it’s time for the doting dad to see Madison and to hold his 8-week-old daughter for the very first time. What an amazing TV moment.
