There’s nothing like being with your family for the holidays and no one knows that more than Notre Dame college basketball player Matt Farrell!
On Monday night, following the Fighting Irish’s game against Colgate, Farrell and his teammates gathered on the court to watch a special video featuring his brother Bo Farrell, who was deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. Army.
While Bo’s message was sweet enough, the REAL shock came when the video ended and Matt’s big bro came walking on the court for the BEST holiday surprise EVER!
Of course there were hugs and lots of emotions, but what makes this even more adorable is the bros’ parents were also there and had NO IDEA their oldest son was coming home.
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazingly emotional video (below) and make sure you have a box of tissues handy!

As an extra cherry on top, the Irish won the game 77-62 and Farrell dropped 13 points — but we’re guessing that’s not what will be remembered. LOLz!
