Ellen Surprises 4-Year-Old Gymnastics Star With A Visit From Her Military Dad

"We have a little surprise for you."

Back in February, Emma Rester, an adorable toddler with a passion for gymnastics, performed for the audience on stage at The Ellen Show. 

Her flipping-amazing performance was met with plenty of applause, and the Internet soaked it all up — the gymnastics prodigy raked in over 15 million views on YouTube alone.

Now, Rester, 4, is back on The Ellen Show for a quick check-in and, in true Ellen fashion, a huge surprise.

Rester's father, overseas in Korea and serving in the army, missed Rester's most recent birthday, FaceTiming her from afar to watch her open her presents.

Now, in the middle of the interview, Ellen announces: 


"We have a little surprise for you. We have your dad."

With that, Rester's dad, holding a big bouquet of pink flowers, appears from backstage to surprise his wife and daughter. 

And it's one reunion you won't want to miss. Be sure to watch the full video below:
