In all her excitement, Willis thought she was texting her sister but she actually texted someone else. Willis had no idea that she accidentally texted a famous person.

Here’s What Happened:

Charlyn Willis got engaged to her boyfriend Dennis and she was beyond excited. Because she was excited, she couldn’t wait for her sister to see her dazzling, new ring. However, when Willis tried sending her sibling a photo, she accidentally sent it to a wrong number. Surprisingly, the number she typed was that of actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. That’s right! Willis texted her engagement ring photo to Buffy the Vampire Slayer star. How did Willis find out? Well, upon receiving Willis’ text, Gellar took the opportunity to congratulate her.

Gellar took to Instagram to broadcast the stranger’s happy news to her 1.7 million Instagram followers as well as she put it on her Facebook page too.

This is Charlyn Willis… She got engaged today and texted her sister but by accident she got me… CONGRATS!!!!”


When Willis found out that she accidentally texted Gellar, she couldn’t believe it. Willis thanked Gellar for her response and even invited her to the wedding.

All of a sudden I am seeing a sweet message displayed to 1.7 million people, Willis said to Inside Edition. Not only on Instagram but her Facebook account as well.

Willis was super excited about her engagement and she was even happier about all the messages of support she received from Gellar and all of her followers. She called the experience “the icing on the excitement cake.”

I’ve been in a relationship with my fiancé for three years and this is what we were working towards, she said. Now that it’s come to fruition, I get to spend my life with the man I love.

Remember…Love has the power to heal or kill… Always proceed with caution!
