And I didn't think this movie could get any better.

Here I was, drinking my coffee and minding my own damn business, when suddenly Twitter user, and fellow BuzzFeed staffer, Kayla Yandoli changed my life by tweeting about the name of Buddy's daughter.

after 14 years, i JUST realized buddy and jovie named their daughter "susie" after buddy's mom 😭

If you haven't seen the film in a while (shame on you) let me refresh your memory. Buddy, the son of Susan Wells and Walter Hobbs, was given up for adoption and then, as a baby, snuck into Santa's bag one Christmas and was raised in the North Pole.

So Buddy goes to New York, meets his dad, pisses off some businessmen, eats a lot of sugar, saves Christmas, and also falls in love with a blonde Zooey Deschanel.

Finally, at the end of the movie Buddy has a child of his own, and we see her name is Susie, which, unless you're a heartless creature and have some other cynical explanation, means Buddy named her after his mother Susan.
