Rams Breakout WR Puka Nacua Gives Special Gift to Mom, Leaving Her in Tears

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua presented a heartfelt gift to a significant individual in his life.

During Mother’s Day 2024, the 22-year-old wide receiver gifted his mother a brand-new car, and tears welled up as he handed over the keys to what appears to be a Genesis GV80 SUV.

The emotional moment that the Rams filmed for their YouTube series “Behind The Grind” featured Nacua explaining the significance of the vehicle to his mother.

Nacua mentioned that the new SUV was his mother’s first car since his father gifted her one just before he passed away from complications of diabetes in 2012.

Penina Nacua has been a constant presence at the Rams games, wholeheartedly supporting her son during his sensational debut season.

She thanked her son for her new vehicle and posted a picture of the two of them during a Rams game on X, formerly Twitter.

Puka Nacua had one of the best rookie seasons ever

Nacua pulled off one of the greatest rookie seasons in NFL history in 2023 after being drafted by the Rams in the fifth round with the 177th overall pick.

The former Washington and BYU player set NFL records for most receptions in a rookie season (105), most receiving yards in a rookie season (1,486), most receptions by a rookie in a game (15), and most receiving yards by a rookie in a playoff game (181).

Nacua earned Second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections and was named part of the PFWA All-Rookie Team.
