The 39-year-old, who was born on a military base as her father was in the army, was reportedly travelling from Detroit to LA on a busy Delta flight on Friday morning when she spotted a soldier in uniform and generously asked a flight attendant to swap their seats.

Eyewitness Jemele Hill, who co-hosts ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, told NBC’s Today show via email from the plane: “When we were waiting to board, I saw her glance the soldier’s way and then she said something to the person she was travelling with. Once we boarded, I saw she was in the first class.

I was upgraded to first class and she was a couple rows behind me. I think she must have said something to the flight attendant because before we took off she had vacated her seat and the flight attendant brought the soldier to her seat.”

She added, “I just thought it was incredibly classy and thoughtful.”
