Mary Banford was in the audience of The Ellen Show, on April 23, when Ellen got a phone call from Mary’s husband, Chris.

Chris explained to Ellen over the phone that he is an officer for the Army National Guard, and that since he lives on base, he didn’t get to spend the 10th anniversary of his marriage with his wife.

Ellen brings Mary on stage to talk about what it’s like not to have her husband around, and why she can’t make the six hour drive from Oklahoma to Missouri to visit him as often as she would like.

That’s when Ellen works her magic, and things get wild when Mary sees her new car.

But a new car wasn’t the only thing that Mary was surprised with that day.

Watch the video above to see the heartwarming surprise.
