Tabitha thought she would enjoy a late Mother's Day celebration on Friday night with her family, but her husband had something else in store.

Victor Alverio arranged a surpise for his wife along with her father.

A dozen roses were sent to Tabitha's table at her favorite restaurant, eeZ Fusion & Sushi, before the airman surprised her.

He couldn't afford a ring when they got married in 2007, so he gave her one now. They now have three children.
