'Extreme Makeover' family gets more good news

Bridgeport family members that received a new home from ABC?s ?Extreme Makeover: Home Edition? got an added surprise Thursday when they learned their mortgage was paid for.

Gloria Brown and her three children saw their new Victorian house for the first time Wednesday. The home was completed with the help of the show and Bridgeport volunteers.

Contractor Mike Gulick reached out to the financial community on behalf of the Browns and arranged to have the mortgage paid for. Gulick made the announcement to the family at a news conference.

It was also announced Thursday that Brown?s three children will get to attend Western Connecticut State University for free.
