The audience members for Ellen DeGeneres's Mother's Day show all had one thing in common—they were all first-time mothers-to-be. But LDS audience member Allison Hill was singled out from the others when she won nearly $6,500 in prizes for her and her baby.
“It was just surreal,” she told the Deseret News. “From the second it started … it was actually emotional. I just cried the entire time. I just couldn’t believe her generosity, and I also had no idea how much it costs to have a baby, so I was very grateful.”
Hill, who told Deseret News it was her dream to be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, won a one-year supply of Huggies diapers and wipes and Plum Organics baby food, a trip to Palm Springs, a crib, a crib mattress, a stroller, a "self-installing" car seat, a Kate Spade diaper bag, and gift cards to Home Depot, Carter's, and Amazon.
“I still don’t feel like it’s real. It honestly feels like a dream. It’s all kind of a blur,” she told the Deseret News. She added, “It was so emotional, and I just felt so grateful that I was there.”
