105-year-old asks for sexy firefighters for her birthday, please

NBA Team Helps Fan Celebrate 105th Birthday


No greater gift exists than the gift of love — especially the love of a hunky firefighter.

Ivena "Ivy" Smailescelebrated her 105th birthday last Wednesday like the queen she is. Smailes had previously asked workers at the Addison Court Care Home in Crawcrook, England, to bring her a pack of "hunky firefighters" for her birthday.

While most employees would simply laugh off the request, this crew took her seriously — and sent a team of firefighters through her front door.

One firefighter even climbed through her window, just to surprise her.

"It was great! Out of this world," Smailes told ABC News.

Debra Carter, a worker at the facility, initially planned the party. Fourty of Smailes friends and family members were also in attendance, all there to greet five members of the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Services department.

"[Ivy] sends us little challenges for her birthday every year and this year she asked for firemen ...She's already said that next year she wants to meet Prince Harry," Carter told ABC News.

Happy Birthday, Ivena Smailes. Let your flame burn on.
