Watch Emme Rylan Surprise Her Son With a Puppy for His Birthday!


We suspect that his 12th birthday will be one that Jackson Money will never forget! The pre-teen — who is the son of GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Emme Rylan (ex-Lulu) and her partner, Don Money — celebrated his birthday on Oct. 21, and the lucky kid’s mom and dad surprised him with a puppy! The best part? Rylan had been denying her son’s request to add another animal to the family’s menagerie. So surprising Jackson with the adorable little pug definitely earned her Mom of the Year status in her son’s eyes!

A few minutes before Jackson was due home — when he’d then be opening presents with his family — the former GH star shared a series of Instagram stories as she figured out how to present her son with his birthday present. “Well, who knew this was gonna happen? Everyone!” Rylan laughed as she cuddled the pug in her arms, clearly smitten with the adorable puppy.

In her next slide, Rylan had the pug in a lidded basket, with a caption of text explaining that she was figuring out how to wrap him up. But as the actress quickly pointed out to those followers who slammed her for keeping the dog trapped, the puppy was never in danger. “Do not worry!” Rylan promised next. “I am not wrapping up a little baby puppy in a box. The basket has two massive holes on the sides, and he is going to be in it for approximately 45 seconds. So do not worry, all of my fellow pet lovers out there. I’m not leaving it just sitting there for a while. No, don’t worry. He’s very happy and very cuddly. And I can’t wait for Jackson to get home!”

Once Jackson arrived home, the family festivities began. And when it came time to give their son his big present, Rylan was ready to record the big reveal and share it with everyone on Instagram! Needless to say, Jackson was left speechless when he unboxed his furry new four-legged friend! “Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it!” the tweenager cried out. “Hi! You are amazing. You are literally the most amazing thing.”

After a moment, Jackson realized that his mom had been lying when she said he couldn’t get a puppy for his birthday. “You said no! How dare you!” Jackson laughed, before turning his attention back to his dog and asking his parents if the puppy was a boy or a girl. For the record, it’s a boy, and as of the video Rylan posted last night, the precious pug was still nameless. But little sister Dakota may have been on to something when she suggested that Jackson name the family’s new pet Birthday or Cake!
