Christmas came a little early for one special mom this year.
During Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, A Bad Moms Christmas stars Kristen Bell, Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn took parenting questions from the audience. One audience member, Ayesha Dixon, stood up and told Ellen DeGeneres she attended the host's Mother's Day special—an episode in which DeGeneres gives moms a ton of free swag—two years ago. "You literally changed my life," the single mom from Los Angeles said.
Touched by her comment, DeGeneres invited Dixon to join her and the actresses on stage. Dixon, who works in nonprofit assisting seniors, shared a little more of her story.
"I'm a single mom, and it's been difficult. As much as I like to give back, I don't have much to give, but I try to volunteer. I always know that there's someone who's worse off than I am….For me and my daughter, you know, as long as our bellies are full and I have a roof over my head, it's been just amazing."
DeGeneres told her guest her mom must be proud of her and then, in true Ellen fashion, brought Dixon's mom out on stage.
