SEATTLE — Turns out actor Chris Pratt isn’t just a hero on the big screen.
Pratt this week visited several children at Seattle’s Children’s Hospital, and posted photos and emotional messages on Instagram.
One photo shows Pratt with a little boy named Rowan. He wrote:
“What an awesome kid. Great parents and from a great family. You’re in my prayers tonight little man.”
Another shows Madisen, who is battling cancer.
The third shows Pratt in the NICU, where he spent the day with Coen and Zion. He mentioned the premature birth of his own son, Jack.
A hospital spokesperson told TODAY in a statement:
“We are incredibly grateful to Chris Pratt for taking the time to visit with our patients and families. He is a real-life superhero to each and every patient and family that he meets. He brightens their day and brings a welcomed distraction. We can’t say thank you enough for the joy he brings to the hospital.”
