Kelechi Osemele Buys His Mother A House

The fourth year guard kept a promise he made as a youth.

If I did something like this, I'd never buy Mother's Day presents again.

Kelechi Osemele bought his mother a house on Wednesday, fulfilling a promise he made to his mother as a child.

The house is a six-bedroom house in Katy, Texas, a suburb outside of Houston. Osemele calls it a neighborhood everyone wished they grew up in.

For Osemele, it is a way of showing gratitude to his mother, who worked three jobs to raise him and his three sisters, while his father spent most of his time doing business in his native Nigeria. The house is spacious enough to hold Osemele's entire family, which is good as Kelechi literally wants to bring his whole family together.

Osemele himself lives in a two-room apartment not far from the Ravens training facility.

This isn't the only gift Kelechi has given his mother. After signing his rookie contract, Osemele purchased a Range Rover for her after his financial advisor talked him out of buying her a house.

Imedla Osemele worked hard to give her children good lives, her son is now returning the favor.
