Whoever said money can't buy happiness never signed a $140 million NFL contract (with a $65 million signing bonus), then bought their mom a house for Mother's Day. All jokes aside, though, Seattle Seahawks Quarterback, Russell Wilson did just that and his mom's reaction—unlike the house itself—was priceless.

In a video Russell posted on Instagram, the quarterback, his family, and wife Ciara stand around the entrance of a gorgeous new home with Russel's mother as she looks around confused, with a set of keys in her hand.

"Those are the keys to your new home," Russell tells her. And after a few seconds of processing and asking everyone around her whether this was "serious" and "for real," she lets out the most gleeful screams you might actually ever hear.

From the overwhelming emotion, she can't decide whether to laugh, cry, or "pee herself;" in the end (thankfully) she only did the first two, because it was all captured on camera. Watch for yourself:

Similarly, Ciara commented, sharing about how special it was in real life: "What a beautiful day and moment. Tears of Joy! The perfect Mother's Day. God you're a good father."
