Dennis Williams received texts about a newborn from complete strangers and decided to surprise them with gifts.

“We are at the hospital. Having a baby today! She has dilated to between 5-6,” the stranger wrote.

Williams congratulated the family and let them know they were messaging the wrong number. The sender then sent a photograph, holding a baby with the caption: “7 lbs. 11 oz.”

“Well I don’t know y’all but me and the boys will be through to take pictures with the baby,” Williams replied.

Williams then offered to show up to the Florida-area hospital with gifts for the newborn. He would eventually surprise the family with his brother Deorick.

The family then wrote a heartfelt response to the brothers on Facebook.

“I accidentally text a message about Mark and Lindsey having a baby to a number I had in my phone for someone else which now belongs to Mr Dennis Williams and he and his brother came by to visit us and bought the baby a gift,” the family wrote. “What a blessing these two guys were to our family.”

"They were so sweet and kind to do this! You 2 are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn’t know! Many blessing I pray for you. I think his brother was Derrius Williams. Cason Knox, Lindsey and Mark Lashley thanks you.  Please share this with anyone you know and hopefully these guys will see. If we all only had this kind of heart.”
