Ryan Gosling fans have been bowled over by reports that the actor became a father after taking in a nine-month-old baby.
A message, claimed to have been written by the actor on his Facebook page, revealed that he took in the baby when the boy’s mum - a close friend of Ryan’s- passed away from cancer.
The message read, “This Father's Day, I've decided to tell the story of how I became a father. This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. 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. 1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won.
“That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love.”
There was also a picture posted with the message of the 33-year-old actor craddling a beautiful baby.
While some have claimed the post is a hoax, fans of the actor were quick to believe it was something he’d definitely do.
