Selena Gomes' husband, J.P., who is stationed in Germany with the 173rd Airborne, returned home a day early and surprised her as she received her diploma.

 

The paratrooper was deployed a few months after their wedding and has been overseas for the last six months. 

The crowd gave the couple a raucous round of applause as they hugged on stage during the ceremony.

Selena, a political science major, said she plans to move to Germany next year to be with her husband.
