Last Sunday was Mother’s Day, a time to show your appreciation for the hard-working, loving moms in your life. And while most folks will spring for a card, some flowers, and brunch, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa went big with a brand-new Cadillac Escalade.
Tagovailoa posted a video to his personal Twitter account capturing the moment he presented his mom with the new luxury SUV. In the video, we see the Cadillac Escalade draped in black paint with polished chrome trim sparkling in the sun, plus a big red bow on the hood. Upon seeing her new ride for the first time, Tagovailoa’s mom seems a bit shocked.
“Where we going?” she asks, beaming. It’s a heart-warming scene. “Ok, let’s go for a ride hon,” Tagovailoa’s mom says as she approaches the driver’s door.
“Happy Mother’s Day to a more than deserving Mother,” the tweet caption reads. “I love you Mom.”

It was recently reported that Tagovailoa recently signed on for a four-year, $30.28 million contract with the Miami Dolphins. The 22 year-old previously played college football at the University of Alabama, and was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft as the number-five overall pick. The deal includes a $19.6 million signing bonus.
It’s awesome to see the young athlete spend some of that money to buy a new Cadillac Escalade for his mom.
“I know you wanted something that would be able to carry everyone,” Tagovailoa said after showing his mom her new SUV.
Indeed, with three rows of seating and upwards of 94.2 cubic-feet of cargo room behind the first row, the Cadillac Escalade should be the perfect ride for the job. To note, deliveries of the next-gen 2021 Escalade are expected to ramp up in the fall.
