Toronto Raptors’ Pascal Siakam Surprised His Mom With a New Home for Mother’s Day
While most Mother’s Day surprises typically include greeting cards, brunch, and flowers, Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam stole the show and took the “bigger is better” route by surprising his mom with a new luxury home.
The 27-year-old power forward took to social media on Sunday to share the news of his surprise, “Happy birthday and happy Mother’s Day to the Queen herself! Thank you for always being there for all of us and being the super mom you are,” reads the video’s caption.
“With dad being gone we haven’t been able to call a place home and it was always my dream to change that! Feeling blessed that I can offer this to you and our family. Can’t wait to make new memories there as a family!”
Siakam’s father, former Makenene, Cameroon, mayor Tchamo Siakam died in a car crash in 2014 — just two years before the Toronto Raptors drafted Pascal.
In the video, Siakam can be seen opening the doors before telling his mom, “this is our house.”
His mom, clearly surprised by the news, can be seen dropping her purse as she walks around the foyer of the new home, entirely overcome by emotion.
Given that the Raptors are currently living in Tampa, FL., amid the pandemic, the new house will give the Siakam family a home base.
While the property’s location is undisclosed, the stately home looks massive and features no shortage of luxurious finishes, based on the photos and videos Siakam shared.
‘Spicy P,’ a native of Cameroon, is averaging 21.4 points per game this season along with 7.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists.
Siakam signed a four-year, $130-million contract extension in 2019 after the Raptors won the NBA championship for the first time in franchise history.
