As she opened the boot, the father, who was lying down inside, emerged and waved hello to his daughters.

“Surprise,” he said.

The girls were unable to hide their disappointment at not seeing any presents.

“What are you doing?” one of the girls asked.

She then began crying while her younger sister looked downcast.

“What’s wrong?” the father asked.

“I don’t want a father,” the daughter in tears replied.

“Father is a surprise,” he said.

“Not at all,” the daughter said.

The mother said that her husband had thought that sending himself as a gift to them would be the best present because they missed him while he was away for work.

The family’s story has delighted millions on mainland social media.

One person said: “Haha, the father is overconfident about his place in the hearts of his daughters.”

Another quipped: “He is wrong. He is a gift for his wife, not his daughters.” – South China Morning Post
