A Navy officer just back from deployment gave his young son a thrilling surprise, caught on video.

Before the big moment, the boy's mother, Jennifer Cullen, holding the camera, told 7-year-old Alex that his father -- who'd been away for 99 days -- had something to tell him and asked him to guess what it was.

"It's a huge surprise," Jennifer says. "If you could think of one surprise in the whole world what would it be?"

"Him coming home?" Alex responds, emotionally, as Sean walks up from behind.
