Military.com reports:

If you're an Ellen DeGeneres Show fan like us, you should plan to tune in on April 9.

That's because male military spouse and the newest Armed Forces Insurance Navy Spouse of the Year, Brian Alvarado, and his husband Matthew are being featured as guests, and we just know it's going to be amazing.

Brian was first contacted about the potential appearance about a month ago, shortly after he found out that he'd been selected as the 2018 Navy Spouse of the Year.

"That was a surreal moment in my life," he said.

Like any good sons, Brian and Matthew took their moms to be guests in the audience. And when it came time for them to go out for their segment, he thought he would be fine.

"I'm like 'I've totally got this' -- and the music started to play and the stage manager said go ... and then there was Ellen and she was so beautiful and she smiled so big and I just lost everything I planned to say," he said. "Overall it was one of the absolutely coolest experiences."
