By Alex Butler

CINCINNATI, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- While shopping in a Target in Newport, KY, Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Wallace Gilberry was sparked with kindness.

Gilberry, 30, saw a family with young boys and bought them a PlayStation 4 and video games.


An onlooker caught the random act of kindness and took a picture.

"Just watched Wallace Gilberry of the @cincinnati_bengals buy a young family with a bunch of boys a ps4 and bunch of games at target tonight. The kids and dad were going crazy and the mom was in tears. I was big fan of him before but I'm a even bigger fan now. What a stand up dude. #wallacegilberry #whodey," @mackiodaddy posted.

"I saw Wallace walking in the store with these kids and dad chasing after him. When I walked by a few mins later, I heard the dad and kids going crazy. Later when he walked by I told him that was a bad ass move. He said thanks, "everyone needs to be blessed."

Angelica Yeager, her husband, and five children were the family that received the Gilberry gift, according to Fox 19.

"We're definitely ordering his jersey now. He's got life-long fans," Yeager told Fox 19. "Regardless of if he's a Bengals player or not, the act he did, he's a great human for that."

On a Reddit post of the picture, several other people commented on stories where Gilberry showed his kindness.


On Tuesday, Gilberry posted a photo while at a food-bank, along with the captions: "To whom much is given, much is expected."

Gilberry has 31.5 sacks and 111 tackles in eight seasons for the Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.
