... He promptly called his wife, who he referred to wisely as "the boss." After her initial excitement calmed a bit, she told him "get home right now!"

But lottery folks are crediting wife Tina D. of Burbank with the score. (The

The pair plan to buy a house and car, lottery officials say, so it turns out February will be a lovely and romantic month for both.
