Jennifer Hudson bought her assistant Walter Williams a new home for Christmas, according to a Jan. 3 Los Angeles Times report. But it is Williams’ reaction to the beautiful gift that is utterly priceless as seen in the video Hudson posted to her Instagram, aptly captioned, “My assistant Walter's reaction when he found out I was buying him a house for Christmas!”

The Instagram video showed Williams screaming with joy and enthusiastically hugging his boss and best friend Hudson after she handed him what appeared to be the deed to a house, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hudson and Williams have a long history together. The two have been friends before the former “American Idol” contestant became a star. In an interview with the Advocate for her movie, “Winnie,” Hudson had this to say of Williams, “My assistant Walter is going to kill me for this, but whatever. Walter and I have been friends since sixth grade. He’s by far my closest friend and my closest gay friend ever.”
