This divorced dad is breaking the internet with an incredible Facebook post about his ex-wife – and it's totally not what you'd expect.

Billy Flynn, a father of two from Boston, Massachusetts woke up early on his ex-wife's birthday, brought her flowers, cards and a gift so his kids could give it to her. He even helped them make her breakfast!

Why? To set a good example for his sons.

"I'm raising two little men. The example I set for how I treat their mom is going to significantly shape how they see and treat women and affect their perception of relationships."

Billy, who's a lawyer and model, says that he feels the need to do this now more than ever, since his relationship with his wife went south.

"I think even more so in my case because we are divorced. So if you aren't modeling good relationship behavior for your kids, get your sh*t together. Rise above it and be an example. This is bigger than you."

While Billy wrote on his Facebook post that he does this type of thing on a regular basis, he’s always surprised by the reaction it elicits from some people.

“Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time,” he wrote. “This annoys me. So ima break it down for you all.”

"Raise good men. Raise strong women. Please. The world needs them, now more than ever."

His post went viral, with people from all over the world commenting with their personal experiences.
