Star Wars Actor John Boyega Shared The Moving Moment He Surprised His Parents With A House And He Is Easily A Contender For Best Son Ever

"Thanks for making me cry this morning. Beautiful."

We're all familiar with John Boyega, Star Wars actor, former Stormtrooper, full time south Londoner and arguably the best son a parent could ask for – and if you need proof, look no further.

The 27-year-old shared with his followers the moment he surprised his British-Nigerian parents with a home of their own in a throwback vlog from 2017, and it's the thing dreams are made of.

After luring his parents to a London location under the guise of an interview, Boyega thanked his mum and dad for their support over the years as he pursued his acting career.

It's rare you can leave Nigerian parents speechless, but Boyega's grand gesture did just that. Yep, that face right there.

Calling the home a "small token" of his appreciation, Boyega added: "It's your prayers that has got this. Because the skill and the ability that I have received has been from your prayers [...] honestly from the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much for everything you have done."

Overwhelmed with emotion, Samson Boyega shed a few tears and was comforted by his son.

He told the talk show host his mum Abigail Boyega was looped in on his big plan and credited her for delivering a great 'surprised' performance.

"My mum knew about it, she knew I got the house, I just needed one of them to know so that if one of them had a heart attack, the other can take them to the hospital," explained the actor.

"Mum is the backbone of the family, she's queen. She done the most Oscar winning performance when he found out."

To top it all off, Boyega had a Jaguar parked out in front for his parents.
