Apparently dreams can come true. Claude and Kurt Blanchette-Ebert, a gay couple from Vancouver, won a $50 million jackpot last Friday — the largest lottery jackpot won in the history of British Columbia. 

The Vancouver Sunreports that the win could not have come at a better time for the cash-strapped couple, who are in the midst of planning and celebrating their 30th anniversary. 

"We still don't believe it," Claude, 52, told the Sun. "It's surreal."


But once it further sunk in, the couple quit their jobs with the intention of living off of their winnings.
