'Stranger Things' star Noah Schnapp surprises woman after none of the guests show up at her birthday party
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: A mother was sad after all guests she had invited to her birthday party failed to show up, but a big-name TV star rushed to her rescue.
Birthdays are usually associated with fun and frolic in the company of your closest friends and family, and so a daughter was understandably upset when she realized her mother was left alone on her birthday. The daughter, identified only as Addie, took to the popular streaming service TikTok and shared the ordeal, even admitting to "crying" over it. The TikToker explained how her mum had invited more than 40 people to her home on Sunday, October 9, cooking and cleaning for the guests who never arrived. The clip eventually received the attention of 'Stranger Things' star Noah Schnapp after it went viral and garnered millions of views.
“My mom threw herself a birthday party and invited over 40 people," a heartbroken Addie said in the TikTok video through tears. "It’s 5 pm, no one showed up and it started at 4 pm, I’m crying.” She added, “She made food and cleaned the whole house too." The teenager's video made waves on the platform before capturing the attention of Schnapp, who managed to save the day. “I would be there! Happy birthday,” the actor wrote on TikTok after stumbling upon the video on his feed. Several TikTokers empathized with the mother. "I will show up just for her, she deserves so much better," one wrote. "Omg this literally hurts my heart I’ll show up for her," another added. "This breaks my heart but she is so blessed to have you," someone else added.
Addie later shared another video of her mum smiling and dancing upon receiving the celebrity's birthday wishes. “Mom who only cares that Noah Schnapp knows she exists,” the teen quipped, prompting envious comments from 'Stranger Things' fans. “That’s so elite. I wish I was mom now,” one wrote. Addie previously noted how her mother was distraught after all her friends failed to show up on her special day. She said only six people responded to a Facebook party invite, “and not even they showed.”
However, Addie shared an updated video showing her and her sisters singing happy birthday to their mum to make the most of the celebrations. The birthday girl was seen blowing out candles on her cake as she was surrounded by her family. The unnamed mom also received an outpouring of love from TikTokers across the globe. "Even though it was just me and my sisters to sing to her, thank you to everyone who was showing me and my mom so much love. I appreciate all of you more than you know," Addie wrote beside the post. "Guys, mum is ok, she is happy, thank you for everything that you've been saying," the teenager added in another video, the New York Post reported.
