SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Usually, a text to a wrong number can be awkward, annoying or even embarrassing. But thankfully for one Georgia resident, her numerical mix-up has led to a positive experience.

Love filled the air on Wednesday, Dec. 14 for Charlyn Willis and Dennis Aikens. 

Willis said, "He was like, 'babe, can you do me a favor?' So I stopped and turned around and he was on one knee asking me to marry him."

Naturally, she couldn’t wait to share the news with friends and family.

Willis attempted to text her sister, but that’s not who received the message. Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fame, was on the receiving end of Willis’ engagement snapshot.

"I texted her to tell her 'Hey girl! I'm getting married' with a bunch of emojis and the selfie that the entire world has seen. Only to find out that it wasn't Sariah...it was Sarah Michelle Gellar," Willis said.

Gellar took to social media to share the experience and wish the happy couple well in their engagement.

"I get to spend the rest of my life with the man I love. It's just icing on my excitement cake that now the world knows thanks to Sarah Michelle Gellar," Willis said.

Willis saw the post and responded in the comments, saying in part, "You've truly made my engagement experience even more of a life changer."

By accident, Willis' engagement has been seen by way more than her sister. With "well wishes" littering the comment section. 

Now Charlyn and Dennis will begin the process of wedding planning with a little more attention than expected.
