The majority of us are used to LeJuan James’ hysterical videos and uber Latino moments, but this time, we got to see a whole new side of the social media phenomenon. In his latest video, James gives his parents the surprise of a lifetime, and we can't stop sobbing.
“My parents have done so much for my siblings and I, and I am forever indebted to them. They made so many sacrifices throughout their 33 of marriage just to see us happy. ”James said to the camera. “My mom worked two jobs when we came to the United States. She was a housekeeper in Disney and she worked overnight at Walgreens as a cashier. My father used to work maintenance in West Gate and worked as a cashier in Burger King overnights.

"When you're young and naive you don't understand how hard your parents are working. My parents would bust their tail working overnights, working multiple shifts and they'd alternate to take care of us, it was three of us. And you don't really understand until you're a little older, then you understand the concept of money and how hard it is to get it and how easy it is to spend it," LeJuan tells E! News. "I remember that at the end of the year in 2016, one of my new year resolutions was to do that for them. I was able to invest into myself the previous year, and now I wanted to invest in them. It was five months of me working and planning with my realtor to try to find the right home to accommodate them, especially where they wanted to live and be around their businesses."
