ANN ARBOR – Here’s a feel good story for your Friday morning.

New England Patriots defensive end and former Michigan Football player Chase Winovich surprised his mother, Nina, with a brand-new car on Thursday.

In an Instagram post, Winovich wrote, “I can never repay you, but here’s a start. I love you mom.”

In a video from the post, Winovich says, “It’s yours, I bought it for you ... it’s already paid for.”

His mother, in disbelief, is heard saying, “Get out of here, Chase! Stop that!"

The 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata was seen inside the dealership with a red bow on it.

Winovich said in the past that Nina would drive her car without a radio back and forth from the family home in Pittsburgh to Ann Arbor to watch him play for years.

Winovich has reportedly been planning on buying her a car ever since going pro.
