Ryan Gosling opens up about the day he became a dad

by

Just when we thought we couldn’t love Ryan Gosling any more, he has shared the most amazing secret with us.

The actor told the world that he became a father for a year after taking in a nine-month-old baby.

A supposed message from the actor has been posted on his Facebook fan page, revealing that he took in the baby when the boy’s mum – a close friend of his – passed away from cancer.

He wrote, “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,” he added.

“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,” he said.

The 33-year-old actor also shared a picture of himself cradling his adopted son.

We’re speechless.
