Whoa! Is Ryan Gosling the father of this adorable baby? On Father’s Day, a photo was posted on Facebook of Ryan holding a little one, and the caption told the story of how Ryan became a father.
On June 15, while the world posted pics of them with their dads for Father’s Day, a fan account on Facebook posted a photo of Ryan Gosling, 33, holding a baby. The photo’s caption said that Ryan adopted a friend’s baby — but how did we miss hearing about this?
Ryan Gosling Adopted A Baby?
We can only image how female fans reacted when they saw the photo that was posted to Facebook. In fact, nearly a million people thought that the photo was real after it was posted online.
In the photo, Ryan looks away from the camera with a smile on his face as his right arm wraps around the baby’s stomach. A lengthy caption accompanied the photo that mentioned that Ryan adopted the baby from a close friend who passed away from cancer. Aww, how sad is that?
“This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad,” the caption read. “His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I’d always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything.”
Ryan Gosling Photo Hoax
However, the whole photo is a hoax! The first sign that this was fake was not the picture itself, but a link to buy a Young Wild and Free T-shirt and be entered for a chance to win the opportunity to spend the day with Ryan.
We are sure that women around the world can finally breathe a sigh of relief now that they know that the photo was a hoax — he is not a dad! The Facebook may call itself “RealRyanGosling,” but it is in fact, just a fan site.
HollywoodLifers, were you fooled by the picture of Ryan? What did you think when you saw the photo? Let us know!
