Aww, how sweet!!

Most people GET gifts for their birthday….however actress Demi Lovato totally flipped the script and on her 18th birthday GAVE her family one of the biggest gifts a child could ever give to her family…..a HOUSE!

The Disney star decided to celebrate her big day by giving back in a big way to her family, who has unconditionally supported her throughout her career, and handed them the keys to a brand new Mediterranean style home she purchased outside of Los Angeles.

At her birthday party Thursday night (Aug 19) at Buddakan in New York City, the young actress told People.com:

“I just bought a house! … For me to give [that] to my family on my birthday, that was the best present.” Lovato also plans to live on the property, in a house in the backyard.

“It’s got pretty much everything you could possibly imagine in it,” she says. “It’s the most beautiful, homey-feeling house. I love it.” And, as a bonus, “the pool has a water slide, which is really cool,” she says.
