College jocks are not exactly known as budding philanthropists, but 23-year-old Tommy Connolly's incredibly selfless act has captured hearts (and headlines) across the globe.

More than 10 years after losing touch with his cousin, Tommy, a student-athlete at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia, decided to contact the 17-year-old and found out her bleak situation. She was not only 32 weeks pregnant but also homeless and barely able to read or write. Her parents weren't in the picture, and the baby's father has been in prison, so the teenager was fending for herself on the streets.

Tommy, who didn't think twice, took her in to help her and her baby-to-be "have a better life." He shared photos and their story on Facebook:

This was her only option. She's spent more time on the streets than anywhere else, and knows the police better than she knows her own family...She could write the book on traumatic experiences. Not many people know her story. It's very intense. Nobody deserves the life she's had.

Despite a rigorous class and sports training schedule, Tommy got a job to get money for a new place and get things set up for the baby, who was born in March. Tommy was there for the birth and even cut the little boy's umbilical cord.

His older brother, Liam, set up a GoFundMe page to help support them. So far, it's garnered over ,000. "Any money raised would set Tommy up for this next chapter of his life. While most of his friends are out partying, socializing or having fun, Tommy simply works, studies and takes care of our little cousin and her new baby boy," writes Liam.

Tommy, who feels "guilty" because of the attention, knows he did a good thing to help his cousin parent a child. "She does 90% of the work–and if it's one or two years of my life I have to put on hold to make sure two lives are going to be saved it's nothing at all."

Meanwhile, his cousin feels like "the luckiest girl in the world." She expressed her gratitude on Facebook saying, "All I wanted was to give this little man a better life than I had–a second chance was all I wanted.
