An Irish mother got the surprise of her life when her two emigrant sons popped out of a box for her 60th birthday.

Jay and Paul Callaghan arranged a secret trip home to Ireland from Canada and America and even made a fake “wish we could be there” video telling their mother Mary that there was a present waiting for her in the back yard. 

Jay has been away for four years and Mary wasn't expecting to see him until his wedding next Christmas, while Paul has lived out of the country for 15 years and hadn't seen his mother in over a year, the Irish Mirror reports.

Here’s the video of the surprise homecoming:
