Dancing Dad Falls Over As Navy Daughter Surprises Him

A stunned dad hilariously falls over in shock while dancing as his Navy daughter surprises him by returning home early after two years. Jadiah Monday serves with the U.S. Navy and has been based in Japan the past two years, but when she was due home she plotted with her mom and brother to surprise her dad Jerome. A week before he expected his daughter home, Jadiah was actually already back in Georgia speaking to him from a hotel pretending to still be in Japan. Later that day, while at church in Jonesboro, Jerome was dancing during high praise and was invited up on stage by the pastor. While mid-dance, Jadiah and her brother Isaac appear from the back of the stage and start dancing next to Jerome who doesn’t immediately notice what is happening. After taking a glance at Jadiah he continues dancing, but suddenly turns back to look at her properly and then in complete shock begins stumbling backwards and falls over. Once he regains his composure and is helped back to his feet, Jerome picks his daughter up and gives her a long hug, before the pair continue dancing.
