Shaun Nyland paid off his ex’s mortgage as a sweet birthday gift and to thank her for being a great mom.
They had tried to make their relationship work but eventually parted ways in February 2021. In the clip, Shaun was seen throwing Cat a set of keys, with her asking: “Why are you giving me these for?” Then he responded: “It’s your birthday today; I want you to have the best birthday ever. And look, I know we’re not together anymore, and I’ve been so proud of you.”
Shaun and Cat had dated for seven years and shared a three-year-old son, Leo.
Shaun continued: “You’re the best mom ever, so I did something. I rang up the bank; I paid off the entire mortgage. This house now belongs to you.” GF Cat stayed skeptical, insisting he was winding her up, but Shaun assured her, saying: “I promise you, this house belongs to you. I rang the bank, paid it off, you own this house.” TikTokers were left thrilled by Shaun’s generosity.
Cat, who is the mother of his son, was left shocked and was almost in tears.

He stated: “I know it was tough for Cat to try and live the same lifestyle we lived but by herself. Honestly, I’m still shaking right now. I’m just grateful that I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to do this, not just for Cat but also for my baby, so that he’s got a roof over his head for the rest of his life guaranteed, and I think if you can do that then why wouldn’t you. It was a no-brainer for me.”
