If anyone in this world deserves celebrating, it's Steve Harvey!

The TV host, author, philanthropist and family man will celebrate his 58th birthday on Saturday, and in honor of this special day, the people of his home and hometown came together with some surprises on The Steve Harvey Show. The cameras were rolling for all of this, of course, and as you'll see, the man of the hour was incredibly moved by all the love!

In one emotional moment, the birthday boy learned that not only has the mayor of Cleveland declared January 17 to be "Steve Harvey Day," but the city also renamed the portion of E. 112th Street he grew up on as "Steve Harvey Way"!

His sister Mona stood on the street outside their childhood home, telling Steve, "We're here because we love you...If mom and dad were here, dad would be saying, 'Do you know I'm his daddy?' and mama would be just shaking her head! We love you, Steve!"

This is where the waterworks began! The father of seven burst into tears, unable to contain his emotion. Before things got too weepy, though, cheerleaders from a local school burst onto the scene and did some custom "S-T-E-V-E" chants and dances!

In another portion of the show, Steve was surprised by Alan Fox, an author and philanthropist committed to educating children. Steve was moved to tears once more when he learned his guest, calling himself "a kindred spirit," made a $200,000 to the Steve and Marjorie Harvey Foundation!

The "happy crying" continued even further when all seven of Steve's kids came on the show and shared their favorite moment with the devoted dad.

"This is my best TV moment," he gushed. "I'm not the person I used to be. It's not about me anymore...I ain't working for me. I'm working for them. I've got four full-time jobs for them. It's so that when...when I'm done, I want you all to just have remembered that somebody cared more about you than himself. I want you to care more about someone else than yourself."

"I will defend your honor until I die. I love all of you," he said. "This is what it is for me. This is the greatest moment I've ever had. I'm very proud to be your father."
