Wilmer buys mom house

Wilmer Valderrama surprised his mom by buying her the house next door to his.

The That 70s Show star has often spoken of the sacrifices his parents made by selling everything they owned in Venezuela before moving their family to the U.S. when he was 14, but he never dreamed he'd be able to give back with the surprise of a lifetime.

Sharing video of the moment he tells his mother about her really big gift on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Valderrama choked back tears.

"That almost made me cry again, that was crazy," he shared of the clip, in which he walks down the street holding his mom's hand, points to the house next to the one he owns, and says, 'This house is yours.'"

Convinced her son is teasing her, Wilmer's mom, Sobeida, snaps, in Spanish, "You liar! Ah no, this is all a joke. Don't mess with me!" before realizing he's not joking and asking, "Seriously? Seriously?"

"As you all know, it's a dream, right?" Valderrama added, addressing the studio audience. "You come to this country and you work really hard and you wake up in the morning and you hopefully mean well, right? And all of a sudden, you wake up and you can do that. America!"

Now that his mom has moved in, he's not at all worried she's too close to home.

"It's amazing, I love it. In fact, she still yells at me for leaving shoes on the floor."

He does admit that having mom next door can be "a very weird dynamic", stating, "I was telling someone backstage... and they're like, 'Oh you're living with your mom?' I said, 'Well we have a bush in between us..., she's also a bush away."
