Everyone has a great ‘wrong number’ text story, but this one takes the cake. Or should we say baby.

A texting mix-up resulted in a newborn baby, and his family, receiving some gifts from a group of strangers.

Mark and Lindsey Lashley were celebrating the birth of their son, Cason, when new grandmother Teresa Lashley went to share the good news.

The problem? She was texting Deorick Williams, a complete stranger.

"We are at the hospital. Having a baby today!” Teresa texted.

"Congrats lol but I think someone got the wrong number,” Williams replied.

Williams kept texting with Teresa and offered to stop by to see the baby.

"What's the room number? Bainbridge hospital right? We have gifts," he wrote.

Teresa replied and Deorick and his brother Dennis were on their way.

Sadly, Deorick did not get a photo with Cason. But he did take a photo with the parents which Teresa shared online.

Deorick shared the post as well and it has been shared more than 20,000 times.
