After receiving a number of text messages and images from an unrecognised number announcing the birth of a child, Dennis Williams and his brother Deorick decided to congratulate the family in person and arrived at the hospital to meet the baby.

"We are at the hospital. Having a baby today! She has dilated to between 5-6 [cm],” the text to Dennis read, to which he responded: "Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number."

Despite the clarification the family proceeded to send Dennis a picture of the new baby, prompting him to plan a visit to the hospital.

Dennis, who is from Georgia in the USA, delighted new parents Lindsey Lashley and her husband Mark with their visit who thanks the brothers for their kindness towards the new baby Cason.

“They were so sweet and kind to do this!” the caption read.

“You two are great guys and thank you for giving to someone you didn’t know! If we all only had this kind of heart.”
