On "Fox & Friends," Tauheed said that he had been deployed the Philippines for six months, and he found out that his deployment was going to end earlier than expected.
He knew that his mom had been planning the family reunion for about a year and had a firm date set. When he realized he would be able to attend, he called his father and coordinated the surprise.
"I was just so blown away. I was almost blown off of my feet when I saw him, because I didn't expect him to come," Moore said. "When I saw him walk through the door, it just floored me."
She said when she hugged him it was a "magical moment," and she didn't want to let him go.
