A son surprised his dad by paying off his mortgage so that he could retire early.
Jamie Nyland, from Gloucestershire, shared a clip of his revealing what he had done, with his father Richard breaking down in tears.
In the video, the 24-year-old - who has 2.3 million followers on TikTok - can be seen walking up to his dad's bedroom and throwing him the keys to the house.
He says: "I've just paid off your mortgage. I've just rung the bank and paid off every single penny left on your mortgage."
Overwhelmed by his son's kind gesture, Richard asks: "Why did you give me them for?"
Jamie then tells his dad that he had 'paid off his mortgage' and that: "You now own this whole house. I swear. You've worked your whole life so now you can actually retire."
And while at first he says 'no', Richard eventually realises what his son has done for him, telling him that he just couldn't accept it.
But Jamie goes on to insist: "I've already done it."
Richard tells him: "You're the best son in the world you can have."
He then goes on to hand the keys back over to his son, saying: "It's in the will. The house is yours - what's mine is yours."
Adding: "I love you so much. You paid off my mortgage, I've put you in my will. You retire me for life so I've set you up for life."
Jamie posted the emotional video with the caption: "I love you Dad."
Last year, two identical twin brothers helped their parents to pay off their mortgage after absolutely raking it in while playing video games.
Ben and Matthew Horton, 20, used the £100,000+ they each make per year, after dropping out of school at 16, to help their mum and dad pay off the mortgage on the Norfolk family home.
They started making money when they were 13 after creating an online game that charged £5 for players to unlock extra features.
Ben confirmed their parents - Mark, 51, who works for a council, and Caroline, 51, a children's services manager - had raised eyebrows when the twins explained how they had managed to earn so much.
He said: "They were definitely sceptical about where this money was coming from. I think they thought we were just playing games, but actually we were developing them and learning these skills.
"Now, though, they are very supportive."
