Williams told BuzzFeed News that he had just returned from an out-of-town trip and was slightly disoriented from the nap.

"I didn't realize it was somebody I didn't know," he said. "And I started getting dressed to go."


"After they sent a picture, I was like that's definitely the wrong number," he said.

"Since we got invited already we thought we might as well give them gifts," he said.

Deorick and Dennis bought diapers, pacifiers, and bottles to welcome the new baby.

"Everybody was really quiet at first because they were so shocked," said Deorick about the moment they walked into the hospital room. "They were like, 'Who are these people?' Then we explained what happened."


Deorick and Dennis started chatting with the parents and a friend of the family and visited the baby.

"We just started talking and having a good little time," he said. "It was fun; we had a great time."

"What a blessing these two guys were to our family," reads the post. "They were so sweet and kind to do this."

He said they are still in touch with the family over text.
