Pavin Smith is probably every parent’s dream son. At just 21-years old, he did something rather exceptional for his beloved mom and dad.
He paid for their entire home. Now they will never have to worry about another mortgage payment again.
Pavin managed to do this despite his young age because he was the seventh overall pick in the year’s baseball draft, signing with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The signing led to a generous $5 million bonus for the 21-year-old first baseman.
But instead of immediately going wild with the money, the young man set his priorities straight. He knew what he wanted to do first — and that was to pay off his parents’ entire mortgage.
When Christmas Eve came around it was time to reveal his huge surprise. Pavin simply handed his parents a letter which explained his gift.
“Thank you for raising me in a great home filled with love,” the son wrote. “Because of all the sacrifices you made to get me where I am, I want our family home to be yours.”
Thankfully, the whole incident was recorded on film — see it below.
