English former soccer player David Beckham surprised a Mexican family with a US$100,000 check and seven brand new iPhones.

Beckham was delivering the gifts as part of Ryan Seacrest‘s new TV show, Knock Knock Live, which surprises unsuspecting American families with a live camera crew and a chance to win money.

Seacrest revealed that the father, Víctor González, had been a professional soccer player in Mexico but had to give it up and take a job in construction to support his family.

Beckham, who himself came from a working class background, wanted to recognize a hard working family similar to his own.

"I'm very fortunate in my life and to be able to do this for a such a deserving family that works so hard is an amazing feeling," Beckham said.
