21-year-old son shows an extraordinary act of kindness by using his first paycheck to pay off his parents’ entire mortgage

Pavin Smith, the first-round draft pick for the Arizona Diamondbacks, received a $5 million signing bonus last summer. To show his appreciation for his parents, he decided to pay off their home as a Christmas gift.

In a heartwarming video, Pavin’s mom reads a letter from him detailing his plans for the money, while his dad stands beside her. The letter brings both of them to tears, and his mom exclaims, “You can’t do that!” The gesture demonstrates Pavin’s gratitude for his parents’ support throughout his life and career.
