(CNN)Deng Pravatoudom followed her husband's dream all the way to Easy Street.

Pravatoudom, 57, has played the lottery for two decades using a set of numbers that her husband dreamed about 20 years ago.

In December, his dream became reality when his wife played those numbers and won a $60 million jackpot, Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) said in a news release Monday.

On December 1, the mother of two -- who was laid off during the pandemic -- went to the bank to pay some bills while her husband checked the tickets.

I couldn't believe it at first," Pravatoudom said during a virtual celebration where she was presented the check.

For decades, she and her husband have worked hard to support their family, she said.

"My husband and I have worked long hours as general labourers for over 40 years, trying to save what we could for our family.

Along with buying herself some diamonds, Pravatoudom and her husband will first pay off their bills and help their children, who she says are overwhelmed with joy for their parents.

"They said, 'Mom and Dad you have worked so hard for 40 years and made many sacrifices, so you deserve this happiness," Pravatoudom said.
