Mother's Day was last month, but Ravens defensive tackle Carl Davis knows there's no such thing as a bad day to make your mother cry tears of joy.

On Sunday, Davis went to his mother's church to surprise her with a BMW. He even gave the car the every-Lexus-holiday-commercial treatment, topping the car off with a bow.

Thank God for putting me in this position to surprise my mom with a new car today.

Davis' mother, Ovella, is a pastor, hence the clergy robes. She helped organize an anti-violence demonstration in Detroit after a weekend of gun violence last month, and it's fitting that she should get a car from her son.

After all, he was born in one. Via the Detroit Free Press:

Ovella said she gave birth to Davis, her second son, in the car on the way to the hospital. Her labor, from onset to delivery, lasted less than 90 minutes, and Davis was born somewhere around 6 Mile and Schaefer, as his father, Carl, drove to Sinai Grace Hospital while speeding through red lights.

"My husband, he was a basket case," Ovella said. "He was absolutely a basket case. He's like, 'What do you want me to do?' 'cause I'm screaming. It should have been a movie. I'm like, 'Driiiive.' And he was driving, it was a red light, he's like, 'Should I stop?' I'm like, 'Driiiive.' But (my son) came out very healthy."
