Christian’s daughter Ruby is turning 17 on Saturday, and they had a whole weekend planned to celebrate. That was until Melbourne was set to go into lockdown number 5.

This was now the second year in a row where Ruby would be in lockdown for her birthday. For a teenager, celebrating your birthday locked up without your friends is pretty upsetting.

Christian knew he had to do something to make this birthday special for Ruby, so before lockdown struck, he hurried to plan a dinner for the family and Ruby’s boyfriend.

But what he planned next was truly special. The whole family were ready to leave when Christian called out “the Uber’s here!”

To their surprise, there was a limo waiting for them! This truly made Ruby’s birthday dinner that little bit sweeter.

Hear Christian share the beautiful story below:
