INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Ellen surprised a fan by asking her to use Walmart's free grocery store pickup service to get her groceries at a local Walmart.

But Nancy, who was sitting in the audience, had no idea that the person bringing out her bags would be her daughter Addie, whom Nancy had not seen for two years because Addie lives in Brisbane, Australia, and the cost of flights across the Pacific has been too expensive.

Walmart also kicked in $10,000 to each Addie and Nancy to enable the mother and daughter to reunite more often.
