Ben Millar, an Irish man currently living in Houston, Texas, got generous tip from a patron who wants him to take his new family home for the holidays.

According to Irish new source Independent.ie, Millar, an expectant father, was waiting on a man named Jeffrey at a restaurant when the two started talking about Irish rock band U2. Jeffrey told Ben he recently visited Ireland, and Ben responded that he wishes he could get home for a weekend to visit family, but "thought nothing of it."

When he came to collect his check, Millar found this.

My boyfriend got this tip last night at work. He's from Ireland and is trying to take us back there once Killian is born...

His immediate reaction? "Holy sh**!"

The picture of the receipt was shared on Facebook by Millar's girlfriend Taryn Keith, who is currently pregnant with their son, Killian. The baby is due January 20th, so Millar and Keith won't be able to make it to Ireland in time for Christmas, but are planning on visiting as soon as their son is old enough to fly.

Keith told reporters, "I think it's a blessing and it couldn't have happened to a better guy than him. He works really hard. He's pretty stressed right now with money and the baby coming, so this just made his whole year. It's good to know that there are kind people in the world."

Unfortunately the generous donor slipped away before Millar had the opportunity to thank him, but the couple is hoping that by sharing the story, Jeffrey will see how much his gesture meant to them.
