Charlie Wakefield is a soccer (or rather, football) player for the Chelsea Academy Football Club. He’s also only 18 years old and is already a budding star. In the video below, all the fame and fortune is put to the side for a moment. What matters here is the love between a son and a dad, and the special message behind a new car.
Charlie’s dad, Mark, was gathered with some family members in the parking lot outside the Southwick Football Club in the U.K.
It was Mark’s 50th birthday.
In the video below, Mark is standing off to the side when suddenly an all-white, brand new Jaguar XE rolls to a stop in front of him.
Mark admires the car, but when the driver’s side door opens and Charlie steps out, his eyes widened.
His son walks over to his beloved dad and holds up the keys to the car. “Happy Birthday,” Charlie says.
Mark is utterly stunned — even his phone ringing isn’t enough to break his trance at the surprise before him.
Charlie goes to give him a hug, and still Mark can’t believe what is happening.
It isn’t until his son places the keys in his hand and Mark is led to the car that he finally realizes the truth: his son has bought him the expensive new car for his birthday.
In a touching Instagram post, Charlie describes how his dad has never missed any of his soccer games, no matter how far he had to drive to get to them.
This was just his way of ensuring that now, when Mark travels to his games, he will do it in the style he deserves!
