Emeril surprises Bucks County mom

The chef shows up at Stacey Carey's front door, bearing breakfast in bed and "Good Morning America" cameras.

Bam. Just like that, chef Emeril Lagasse and cameras from ABC's Good Morning America - plus the William Tennent High marching band - showed up at the front door of Stacey and Brendan Carey in Feasterville this morning to serve Stacey breakfast in bed.

Stacey's friend Colleen DiCandeloro nominated her for the Mother's Day honor for seven reasons.

Stacey delivered sextuplets on June 1; daughter Julianna was 15 months old at the time.

She left her job as a math and computer teacher at Tennent in January 2011, hence the appearance by the high schoolers.

"Did you how much you're loved?" Lagasse asked her, leading her outside as friends carried Patrick, Samantha, Olivia, John, Emma, and Connor - all sporting GMA shirts.

"I do now," Stacey replied.

Neighbors hauled a bed onto the front lawn, and Lagasse served her waffles, candied bacon, and a smoothie.

In addition to the breakfast in bed, Lagasse also served her a "diaper cake" (they go through 45 changes a day) plus a $5,000 check and breakfast for a year, all courtesy of Thomas' English Muffins.

Point of fact: Before Emeril was Emeril, he was a line cook at the old Sheraton near Philadelphia International Airport.
