At the celebratory event, the show surprised Bailey with an appearance from “Jungle Cruise” co-stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.


“What a journey and how inspiring your story is,” Johnson told him. “We’re proud of you.”

Blunt added, “You just keep shining your light. You’re amazing.”

Bailey will start work as a physical education teacher in Atlanta.

“I’m kind of speechless,” Bailey said, recalling the motto that inspired him, “Meet your blessings halfway.”

“Your blessings will come to you if you go for it,” he continued. “Sometimes we want blessings to come to us. Just meet them halfway and you’ll get there.”

The father of four registered for college in 2017 at the age of 39, going through school while continuing his full-time job as a custodian and raising his family.

“GMA” also gifted the new teacher with an exercise bike and treadmill, along with a $15,000 donation to the school.
