YOUTUBE star Adam B (Beales) shocked a Co Derry woman after arriving at her home with a new family car and presents for her twins.

Bronagh Burke (29) lost her husband Thomas suddenly in April leaving her children, twins Adam and Aoife without a daddy.

A well-known football coach in Derry, Thomas died suddenly from a heart attack.

The tragedy prompted an outpouring of sympathy and support for her family and even 2,000 people responded to Mrs Burke's social media appeal for birthday cards for her twins who turn four next Sunday.

The Derry YouTuber has more than three million followers to his channel where he carries out pranks on his parents with his younger brother.

Beales has also worked with Disney and last year completed a live sell-out stage show.

Last month the Derry man he surprised his own parents presenting them with the keys to their dream house .

It was just one 'random act of kindness' carried out by Beales who has also been using a special black ice cream van to deliver presents to children nominated by his followers. So far he has given away £20,000 in gifts to youngsters across the north west.

Mrs Burke told how she was stunned to be given a new Citroen C4 car saying she was left “speechless, shocked and humbled”.

“We are forever thankful. You have made two almost four-year-olds very happen and stunned by your generosity. You have helped us so much at the hardest time of our live and we will never ever forget the kindness of your family and the warmth that you have instantly showed us.

“Myself, Adam and Aoife’s hearts are shattered forever with losing our amazing husband and father but you have brought light into the most darkest times,” she said.

Bronagh also revealed the new car couldn’t have come at a better time as she had been forced to give up the family car in recent weeks.
