Ellen DeGeneres Gives The Gift Of Soccer To Eight-Year-Old Man City Fan

Dreams do come true.

Ellen DeGeneres welcomed back eight-year-old Kai Langer to her show this past Tuesday after he'd gone viral in 2013. He came to sing but encountered more surprises than he ever could've imagined. Not only did he get to meet pop singer Ed Sheeran, but he also left with a birthday gift no one saw coming. 

Kai revealed his love for soccer and his dreams of becoming a professional soccer player. But first, he needs to get a little older, a little taller and a little stronger, so, until then, he has his eyes on the next best thing: for his most recent birthday, Kai asked his father for a trip to England to see his favorite team, Manchester City, play in the Premier League.

His dad replied with a typical parental response: “Maybe when you're older.” Lucky for Kai, Ellen granted his wish and will be sending him and his family to England to watch Manchester City compete in the Premier League! Talk about the best birthday gift ever. 

That’s not all… 

The 8 year old also walked away with an honorary playing contract from MLS team LA Galaxy and some soccer swag. Take a look at the video that will make you feel some type of way.

For Ellen fans: watch the whole video.

For Ed Sheeran fans: skip to 2:00.

For soccer fans: skip to 4:22. 

ENJOY!
